I am going to change to the X4R-SB Receiver. 16 Ch and SBUS.

For the gimbal and camera, I need to do some more research online. Questions like, can I change camera modes while in flight?(e.g. 1080p video to still pictures) Can I turn the camera on and off, or do I have to turn it on and start recording before flight?

The Option for now regarding Camera is still the Runcam Split (V2 or maybe V3). That is also the reason why I said to take a RX with more channels. The Runcam Split for example can be connected to a free UART Port of the Flight Controller and you can control the Camera from your Remote (i.e. change mode from Video to Photo).

Hi Guys,

Am quite new to the quadcopter scene. This project looks awesome and i have already downloaded the stl files.
I had the same query as mentioned below. Am i supposed to print Middle or Base Middle?

Thanks

Immy.


Someone had asked this a few months ago, but I didn't really see a clear answer: In the list of STL files for the F3 version there is a piece called "Base Middle", and there is also a piece called "Middle". They are slightly different, but 90% of it looks identical. Which one should be printed? I know there is the "Base Middle Split" files, but I'm not worried about those... so can anyone tell me the difference between "Base Middle" and "Middle"?

Thanks... :)

@darozas
The problem is that the most recent STL files include a part designed to hold that crappy NZ GPS and a D4RII receiver. He'd need to remove that part and include a new one. Which specific GPS should he design it for? And which receiver? Obviously almost nobody is going to use those parts, but he also has no idea which parts you might use. There is no consensus that I am aware of. It's basically up to you to design what you need to fit the hardware you want to use.

@xplosify
Middle.stl is the older part with the closer hole spacing for the front two screws. Base Middle.stl is the newest part with the wider spacing that matches the top front cover included in the V4.1 package. Probably almost everyone will want to use that part. You can view the difference by dropping each .stl file into this online viewer.

In my case I needed to make more extensive modifications to both of those parts, but wanted the wider spacing. I ended up downloading the IGS files and then editing them to bring them up to date (matching V4.1) in my CAD software. Now I can make changes much more easily than trying to edit the stl mesh. It would be nice to have IGS files of V4.1, but it seems we have to work with what we have... ;)

I'm hoping this mini GPS will fit the existing design

May print this and try to install the electronics from a Bugs 2 or Eachine Ex1 into it.

To overcome the ball plunger requirement ( the M4 bolts make the arms more than secure so this is just the icing)  I have spent an hour or so printing different diameter balls on a stalk ( like a lollipop)  with the intention of using one in place of the plunger and robbing a spring from one of the wife's pens,  I could use one of mine,  but y'know. Lol

Balls were printed in 5,4.5,4 and 3.5mm with a 0.15 layer height at 50% with cooling off.  Anything below 3.5 was useless,  I printed 2 of each size and am more than happy with the results.

Will upload some pics.

Another alternative to the esc,
4pcs DYS long bar XML20A with BLheli firmware 3-4s for 10mm arm tube for FPV racer

Does almost fit flush inside the arms with the tunnel bridge cut away.

Hey folks,

I'm totally new to this so I was hoping I could get a little advice on motors for this thing. The Black Widow motor that was used isn't sold anymore, or at least not that I could find. I was doing the compare and contrast thing, but I'm not sure I know what I'm looking at. I was looking at these Multistar motors (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/2205-with-built-in-30a-bl-heli-esc-ccw-15-lam.html), and they seem like they'd fit the bill, but before I pull the trigger.

Any thoughts?

Hi robcollie,

very good found, I couldnt find any other Motors with built-in ESC when I started my Build.
I don´t see any reason why these Motors should not work. The only concern I have is that they are quite powerful with 2350KV. If you find them a bit lower with about 1000-1200KV would be better I guess but also with these should work.

What's the downside to more power (insert Tim Allen grunt here)? Is it an issue of control?

I didnt made experience on my own but I could imagine it is hard to control and it would drain your battery a lot faster which is more important I guess.

Higher KV means that the motor is faster, the KV rating is an indicator of how many RPM's the motor will spin with 1volt added.
The original mavic runs at 1400kv motors - 1400kv * 11.1v = 15540RPM
the multistar motors will run at 2350kv * 11.1v = 26085RPM

to make an 8,3" prop spin at that speed, requires a lot of Amps! and gives you hotter ESC's and motors and shorter flight time!
