Hi Kondratev

I have already answered your question in post #85 regarding power.

sorry trafgg, i have asked  so many questions, i cant keep  up with my self.  Looking at the picture you made,  the battery connects to the PDB, and then the motors connect to the PDB, along with the PMU. so basically everything will connect to the  PDB.  If so, is my PDB sufficient enough to power everything.

i have the following PDB

Ok guys, im back to finshing my mavic clone.  Been busy with other projects last couple months.

Of course i have all my parts in.  everything is printed.  now to put the all electronics together.   so like always i have questions for you guys.

1. the power to the motors;  where do i power the motors too.  i have started connecting the motor to FC, with the small black and white wires.  I know that is not power.  But the bigger red and black wires; where do they go.

2. i also have a PDB, should i connect battery directly to that or direectly connect the battery to the naza V-SEN POWER MODULE. im very confused on this part. not sure where the battery should be mainly plugged into.  I would like to use my PDB also, to power my lights and what not.

3. also steve. how did you mount your rgb lights in the back. i cant seem to figure out a place for them without gluing it or something like that.

thanks for the help.

And could you provide an STL File or a 3d Model with the whole Mavic in one piece? I would like to try some colors and want to see how it looks before printing.

you can find the iges files on the download section.  just get a fusion which is free and view the files that way....

I really like how the nose cover came out like that too... have you edited the file to make it look like it is in the picture.  If so can you post the file.

How about I donate $300 so you can keep tinkering with the ftl file, and you print me a few sets for free.



Lol.

Ok what kind of printer do I need ($300ish price range) new or used.

Preferably plug and play but I can tweak things if plug and play isnt realistic.

What kind of filamint, filament and what endfill and temperatures do I go for?

Thanks!

I have a ctc dual printer.  It works great, but after a lot of time and printed upgrades.  I have printed my mavic on it.  I paid about 500 for the first one and they are about 300 now.  This printer you do not have to build.  its ready to print out of the box, but it still needs calibrations done to it.  You could also go with the prusa i3 clones.  These types of printers you can get from 100 to 400.  Only thing is that you have to build it.  You can get one prebuilt but you pay more money for it.

For filament, i mainly use PLA.  It works great for the drone and still strong.  Remember, the cool thing is, if you break it during flight, you can just print a new part. Filament is super cheap. I get mine for 20 bucks for 2.5 pounds.

hope this helps.

Well guys. Last Thursday. I finally had my first print. After a lot of help from Steve on Facebook. I was successful the first time. 

Guys if you are thinking of getting one and not sure.  I suggest you do. These are some sick printers for a really good price.

If you arm it and raise the throttle a bit but not enough to take off then disarm the props should all stop near enough together. If one takes longer to stop then it will have been running faster so you would need to calibrate. Also if you do a punch out and it goes off to one side instead of straight up then there will be an unbalance. It is easy to do in cleanflight with a nase32 but not found out how to do on a Naza. Maybe it isn't required in Naza because it's more intelligent. In cleanflight you power up with full throttle(PROPS OFF) and then drop the throttle to minimum and it's done. Maybe that principle also works with Naza, never tried as don't have much experience with them, this is my first Naza board.


Thank you, i will try with the naza first and if i think its doing the things you listed, i will go ahead and order me a naze32.  Thanks again for you help. i have learned a lot from you.

Yes a Naze32. Try if first, you may not need to calibrate.

triafgg, how will I know if I need to calibrate the ESCs.  what should I look out for.

Hi Kondratev

The ESC from motor 1 goes into M1, motor 2 to M2 etc. You just need the white wire from the ESC, you can cut off the black, but not too short in case you need to calibrate the ESCs which you can't do with the Naza as far as I know. I just hook up a cheap naze board and do it with BLHeli suite but you need the white and black for that and would need to temporarily reconnect the black.

Thanks that helps a lot.  didn't realize that I would have to calibrate the ESCs.  Are you talking about a NAZE32 board to calibrate the ESCs or is it a different board.
