So POSHold is still not good even with M8N gps???

Try to learn to fly on simulator first I would recommend (Learn to fly In ACRO mode not angle mode)

Regards

Is to early to say if it works or not. For some seconds it stayed in place and then it did crazy things so for the moment I think more about a misconfiguration or maybe really to windy. I will try it again when the weather gets better (Autumn has come in germany...)

Simulator is a good idea, I will definetly look it up.

Another package from China arrived: Bluetooth Module HC-06

So I didn't went out for flying today but I managed to connect the Bluetooth Module Toner be able to change iNav settings wireless when I'm outside and even get some informations when I'm in the air. Very nice and helpful feature I guess.

Nice Diary and build iRazor,

I've been reading everyone's diary, studying what they've done and how they wired it together, I'm a Noob at Drones, I've got a few but this is my first build, I have everything printed, some parts on the way. I ordered M4 screws instead of M3's so assembly is held up, but your pictures have helped a lot especially since I have no idea how to wire up a 4 in 1 ESC. I'll publish a diary when I'm a little further in my build but for now I'll eagerly watch for updates from you and the other guys.

Thanks for all the info.

Thanks for the nice words and I'm looking forward to read your diary but right now is one of these moments when I want to throw everything out of the window...

This morning was perfect weather so I went out with the drone but of course nothing was working... Don't know what was the problem again but I couldn't fix it in place so I went back home very frustrated. Will probably check tonight whats the problem and try again tomorrow

After struggling for some hours I finally found the problem... When I installed the bluetooth Adapter the RX Pin of the connector on the FC got bent against the TX PIN which caused a short and I was unable to connect... UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Tomorrow next try...

Ok, that is the last update on this diary: I'M DONE!
The show must go one... Mavic MK II in progress

After I fixed the problem with the connection yesterday I went out flying today. After some minutes it went ok I tried POSHOLD and ALTHOLD which didnt work at all. One minute later the Copter got out of control and crashed full speed forward onto the ground.
I collected all the small pieces which where left over, one motor and the GPS Module are still there somewhere but I couldnt find them.

I don't consider myself to give up fast but enough is enough. I wont spend another 100 or more to just crash it again.
I really had fun to build that thing and even searching for problems and solutions made me happy and I learned a lot but I think I'm not made for that hobby.

If somebody from Germany is interessted in some of the electronic parts which are listed on the first side give me a PM. I will check the hardware now as much as I can and probably put it to sale on Ebay.

Good luck to everybody else. I will look for a new hobby now.

No I didn't and I learned it the hard way. Probably you are right and I should have started with something easier but I came across this forum because it's 3D printed and I wanted to do something with my printer so I started with that one.

I don't know if I will try another drone or not but for the moment I have enough and anyway winter is coming :)

get your self brushed mini quad and start learn to fly multirotor

But go and find your lost parts ill need in future

Once you good at flying brushed drone only then start rebuilding your mavic trust me it takes time to get use to it its not easy one.

I do own 4 drones took me 2 years to get where im now .

Had same crash after crash after crash and i end up quiting hobby but year later i got back to it.But approach i did was different.i have took my time and learned to fly small brushed quad in house back and forward trust me loads of fun.

Then i gone to mavic trust me teach me alot been flying in angle mode all the time .And still was crashing and crashing and crashing.

Then i got on simulator spend some hours there.

Then i build my self a racing quad 250mm that where all got to addictive cant stop now.(No more Angle mode Rate mode all the way.

Racing quad is mostly bullet proof crash pick it up and fly again (Not like Mavic) Mavic is fragile and need to be controlled properly if you know what i mean.

So you first choice is wrong and its a fact.

So i would recommend you to build racing drone while learning with brushed one.

Takes time remember this.

Get your self USB dongle and connect your transmiter to PC and get some simulators to play with and only then take real one after some good practice hours play in ACRO only forget Angle mode in simulator you crash but wont cost you nothing

when you master ACRO mode you will never ever will want to fly in ANGLE mode again

Good luck

Regards

I got the cable yesterday and wanted to try a simulator today because they look like fun.

I was also thinking about race quads but for now I need some days off from this hobby.

The parts are lost, I searched like crazy but they are gone. I don't ever think the GPS survived because it had some sort of ceramic antenna and I'm pretty sure it broke when I see the other parts

Can you give me an example of brushed drone for inside to train a bit and also for a race copter to start with?

I saw there are also print templates for race copter base. Would you recommend to buy one from carbon fiber or would be a printed one ok for the beginning?
