3d Printed Mavic Clone / Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
« on: November 15, 2018, 05:31:00 PM »
The 4in1 I've got doesn't fit, is the naza body wider than the f3 body or the other way round and what's the size difference.
Is it just the body that's different between the versions?
I'm hoping I don't have to redraw it.

Edit, I can get the board to fit but not inline with the gyro so will either move the gyro or altering in the configurator. I need to move some mounting points around and print another one otherwise it should work.

The stuff from China has arrived, just waiting on the ball plungers now.
Time to start trial fitting stuff I think :)

You've posted in my build thread, I think you meant to post in the files thread. I'm afraid the answers to your questions won't be answered here you will get more responce in the correct threads.

Different flyers use different equipment. You're best place to research is the build diaries at the top of the section.

I'm the same, been doing this for years and have all the stuff but not quite small enough lol.
I've ordered a all in one that has fc and esc in one package, ive ordered the motors and props and a GPS unit, it's come to about 100 from banggood. I decided it's just easier to start afresh.
I'm waiting to see if my existing batteries will do.

My question; I currently have two different sets of motors. 2204-2300kv and 2212-980kv. I'd prefer not to have to get new motors, atleast not yet. Which one's would you recommend I use?

If you search motors on this forum you will get loads of threads up and most reccomendations say 2212-980kv so that's what I've ordered and it looks like what you have.
It's not a good idea to use massive escs and run at half powers they normally blow up, escs are designed to run at nearly full all the time but hey if you can fit 30a ones in try it, if they get hot you'll have to change at a later date.

Thanks for your reply.
I think i'm going to use some countersunk screws and machine a nice low profile dome nut for the top.

Guys, do the rear arms swing round and hit the nuts holding the front arms on or am I missing somthing?
The nuts for the front pivot stop the rear arms folding back fully, the only way I see forward is to have the nut on top.

Any help appreciated, I can't seem to find any pictures of completed machines that have been taken of the underneath for some reason.

Quick question for anyone reading,
Ive printed the bits and before I start cleaning them up I couldn't stop myself from doing a dry fit to see where I'm up to he he.

I've noticed there's no room under the front arm pivot for the nut without the rear arms hitting it when folded. What am I missing or do you all just fold the arms until they hit the nuts and make do with that?
I'm thinking the only way round it is to use countersunk bolts and let them in underneath and have the nut on top.
Any hints?

Forgive the mess I've not cleaned the slurry off yet.

You can get a red as well I think.

It will be easy to find if it goes missing one flight lol.

Old top8c I know but I'm interested how these builds with bondo balance and how much extra weight is added, how did this one turn out?

Another popular way to smooth abs prints is to acetone fog them, I tried it once but melted my part by leaving it unattended too long lol..

Could anyone tell me if the middle part is the same for both naza and f3 versions or if it's different, ive printed the naza one before changing my mind and moving to the f3 version, if i dont need to print this bit out again ill be very happy, thanks.

Thanks.

I've made my mind up, I'm going to leave the naza v2 for its intended project.
I want the expandability of a f3 build so I've been shopping.

I've gone for an all in 1 solution, the prospect of one part blowing and scrapping the lot is scary but I'm willing to give it a go.

I've gone for some motors on the cheaper side but seem to have a following,

The GPS side of things eluded me a bit, I'm used to plug and play so I've used my best guess,

I've also ordered a set original props and some carbon fibre run quiet copies.

I hope nothing's too wrong in those?

I'm guessing the middle body part I printed above is different to the f3 version I'm now printing and will need to be redone?

Hi guys, new to the site and this will be my first fully printed multi as I've always been sceptical of strength but you can't all be wrong lol.

I've just started printing the bits, I aim to end up with a gimbal on the front but I'm unsure of the camera yet.
In my parts bin I've a few fcs but all a year or 2 old now. I've a new naza I thought I would use but I do like the auto flying modes the real mavic has and from memory the naza can't do that so I'm printing the bits while I ponder what to do.

One last thing,
I'm printing in glow in the dark filament!
