Hexa frame adventures continue !

 

This time I've prepared the power board that will distribute power to all 6 ESC's and to additional devices (video TX, camera controls receiver unit, tracking system TX, LEDs and more...)

 

Important issues were: Lightweight, simple, high current, fail-proof.

 

 

 

And as we all LOVE pictures:

 

 

the view on the following picture is the BOTTOM of the central plate.

yes, the power board will stay under the main plates. it will allow interference free environment for the electronics mounted ABOVE the plate. as well as don't pissing off the magnetometer with high currents flowing nearby.

We like your comments..... :)

Ok mine flew but I am certainly thinking about changes now, thats the beauty of designing things. One week to flight and then six months to think.
