This is the first in what I hope will be a series of posts about my new mini h-quad build.
I'm going to be working from an existing design to start. You can find the design files here. This was NOT designed by me, it was designed by Steve, check out his site here. I hope to build up this design then move on to designing my own frame as a derivative to correct any weaknesses in the design if any.
I'm looking for a more acro quad coming from nano-quads and want to do FPV eventually. I'm really inspired by the blackout mini h-quad and the size and portability.
So I've ordered the parts and I'll be moving a lot of the electronics over from my other quad to this one to try it out. So the build will include:
- 12amp afro simonk esc
- kk2.1 flight controller
- 1600 3s zippy
- Turnigy 2100kv motors C1822
- 5030 stock props
- hobby king 6 channel rx/tx
I'm a little worried this motor is lightly underpowered, but ecalc has it coming in at around 54% throttle for hover. I may end up switching to a >2300kv motor, but they are all a bit above my budget right now.
picture time! This is what I've printed so far with the makerbot replicator 2x at my school. Really struggling with this machine, but when prints come out they look great! It is way less reliable than my custom i3 at home though.
That's it for now, just waiting for my hobbyking order to arrive and I should be able to start assembly then. See you guys on the flip side!
Parts will be coming off my 330 size quad:
