Title: Mini Mavic Clone v1.0 Released
Post by: CdRsKuLL 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 :-)

(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/mini.jpg)

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.

I am currently building the Mini Mavic with this board: https://www.banggood.com/Eachine-32bits-F3-Brushed-Flight-Control-Board-Based-On-SP-RACING-F3-EVO-For-Micro-FPV-Frame-p-1076530.html (https://www.banggood.com/Eachine-32bits-F3-Brushed-Flight-Control-Board-Based-On-SP-RACING-F3-EVO-For-Micro-FPV-Frame-p-1076530.html?p=3B03079878369201704R) Really like it because of it's size and price! Definitely recommend it!

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.

So you did not go for 2s?
Title: Re: Mini Mavic Clone v1.0 Released
Post by: CdRsKuLL on May 22, 2017, 09:36:37 PM
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

You can adjust the size, but I think it will be too heavy
