Add to EJ Playlist For sale at $1200 or best offer is a ready-to-fly FPV multicopter including:
3DR Y6 Multicopter with APM 2.6 flight controller, factory assembled
DragonLink v2 control receiver
GoPro Hero 2 camera
generic 2 axis gimbal
700 TVL CCD FPV camera by ReadyMadeRC
1.3 GHz 400mW video transmitter by ReadyMadeRC
900 MHz telemetry modules, 3DR OEM
antennas for every onboard device
Payment by PayPal or cash only. Shipping is at the discretion and expense of the buyer.
All that is needed is a 3s battery of 5-6aH, a control radio, and FPV ground station. I fly a Turnigy 9XR with great success and will gladly share my OpenTX flash file for immediate setup with your compatible radio.
This copter will fly up to 10 minutes per 5aH though I strongly recommend limiting flights to 7 minutes to maintain 30% state of charge upon landing to preserve battery longevity.
I have had many enjoyable aerial video flights with this craft but have a new job requiring travel and I therefore need a multicopter that will fit inside ordinary luggage. A custom quadcopter is in the works.
Add to EJ Playlist A brief description on some of the uses and advantages of using lipo battery packs in parallel and a complete tutorial on how to make XT60 parallel connectors for 2, 3, and 4 packs in parallel.
Disadvantages include increased weight and bulk of extra wire leads and connectors. Advantages include more flexibility on configuring pack layout inside aircraft, variable battery loads for each aircraft and each flight, and versatility of a single-size fleet pack used for a variety of applications.
Add to EJ Playlist Andrew is a very skilled YouTube buddy of mine who has really refined the EA building techniques using Depron and made some excellent airplanes, with nice videos to match. Slope soaring at the beach is his specialty but he flies at the field as well. He has made noteworthy examples of several EA designs and many of his own.
Worth a look and a subscribe whether you build with Dollar Tree foamboard or Depron.
