Hello, I'm finishing my second cuad, a Tarot 650 :)
and I want to share with this comunity that help me a lot.
Build a more efficient cuad (than the first) that can fly minimun 15-20 mins carring a camera and using the knowledge that I learn from my first cuad to present, choosing parts, building and tunning on my own :) (but any help or suggestions are welcome )
From what I choosed and what I was able to buy were little differences because we have many difficulties to import things to owr country and 3DR export problems when I bougth parts.
Frame: Tarot 650 with external motor mounts
controller: Ardufliyer 2.52 (perhaps Pixhawk next year ;) )
Motors: RcTimer HP4215 460kv
Esc: Opto 40A
Props: 15*65 CF Rc timer
GPS: Neo UBlock (pick a better one next year)
PModule 3DR, telemetry 915
Cheap Rx: waiting the Dragon Rx (I put one but fails :( )
Looks like you have done a great job! Is it flying now?
Maybe you should post some videos of it once its flying.
I finished but I don't have enougth time to dedicate him this days, I fly once but I couldn't tune it yet.
Finally this cuad weight without batteries 1.4 kgs and uses aprox 13A with one 5000mah 3s battery in first flight, no FPV, no gimbals, for the moment ;)
Finally my new cuad fly :) :) , Loiter is incredible :O
