Mini Mavic Clone v1.0 Released
« on: May 20, 2017, 03:40:11 PM »
THE STL FILES ARE IN THE DOWNLOAD SECTION. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER TO SEE THIS.

A cheap and easy mini mavic clone. Please note, this model does NOT fold.. it's small enough as it is :-)



Items used in my build are

4 x 8520 brushed motors + 65mm props
1 x F3 Evo brushed flight controller flashed with iNav
1 x Receiver to match your setup
1 x Battery Giant Power 2s 1000mAh Dimensions: 72 x 26 x 12.7 mm

Total cost about £35.00

I used superglue on my motors to keep them in place as they were getting hot and making the pla soft. Seems to work okay :)

Have fun :-)

I'm just finishing off a micro mavic.. my mini decided to take up smoking.. oops although is did look awesome going down in a pool of smoke.  I think the motors were pulling to many amps and the jst cable I used couldn't take it...  Oh well.

Will release the new micro mavic soon. :-). Can't get much smaller.

Hey, it was really steady. I've finish my Micro mavic now but just waiting on some components. I guess it's ready for released to be honest..

The micro version uses 1S 500mAh batteries which you can get 5 for £10 :-) including a usb charger so really cheap.

I'll create the STLs now and upload them :-)

You should try Turnigy nano-tech 1S 750mAh 70C from HobbyKing.
Gives you an extra punch.

Yep, the mini has room for a 2s.. the micro, just the 1s..

The motors got dam hot on the 2s.. and I ended up smoking the jst lead that I soldered onto the FC.. it did look awesome as it was coming in to land.. lol
