Heres a few vids of my new fpv plane built to take out a 200km badge.
Avail now at www.Asiatechdrones.com in both EPO and Full Composite versions.
Cyclops-E Test flight and second flight videos. A very promising new airframe.
This is not a techpod, I have one and they should not be compared as in my personal opinion the techpod was never properly finished, forgotten about and always left a Lot to be desired.
This is a cyclops and the design is owned by John, read up if you want to know the whole story... It's had a lot of work and $ put into it by John at asia tech drones to fix all the problems the other one had, is strong and is a great flyer.
Oh yeah... And the wings stay on.
My finished weight is 1590g rtf with std Fpv camera... No lipos or HD cam or its mounts etc.
With a 7800 3s I'm 2125g... Needs at least 520g worth battery to balance on spar.
There is no bare foam on wings or control surfaces, what isn't covered in glass tape is covered in clear tape/lam with proper overlaps and lots of very careful ironing.
RVosd G6 with airspeed sensor.
Castle talon 35A esc
Thunderpower 7800 prolite 3s or 24-30 Panasonic 18650b cells.
OS 3820-960 11x7 APC prop.
Hitec hs56&65 servos
Ezuhf 8ch lite.
Lawmate 500 vtx
Shielded vid cables etc.
My personal Build/flying cost around $1300Au with Lipo... $1600 with Li-ion packs. (Assuming kit cost of $180 odd)
More build pics in my blog attachments.
