found a video from a few weeks ago….
So, we now have 6.
Aries is running an F3 knock off flight controller, and micro-minimosd. This let’s us tune PID via the on screen display. The additional UART of the F3 is very handy in this regard.
Receiver is a FrSky X4R-sb. We are using the SBUS interface this time around. Testing/maiden to happen in the next day or 2. Will report back results of all this high end stuff crammed into one cheap ZMR250.
Pinto, Omni, Vega, and Nova are all back online, and upgraded. Nova is now running a FrSky receiver, new quad under construction.
Fear the Aries K
Added to a LC filter circuit to the power line for the camera, no more lines! Vega is bolted down, and ready to rock. Now to get another one ready for the weekend.
Sunday got a solid couple hours of good flights in. Of the 4 working quads we deployed, Corvair survived, Nova drowned, and Pinto got wishboned.
Taranis backup files for the fleet have been added to the fleet page.
As of Sunday night, Nova and Pinto are back operational. Vega is getting a new camera, and hopefully Omni will be ready for maiden in a day or two.
Corvair in it’s fiberglass framed glory. Ready. to. rock.
- Pinto Fully Operational
- switched to 5030 props, much smoother especially at WOT
- Vega – Fully Operational
- has bad video interference at all throttle positions. Need to add an LC filter
- 5045 props gives it response with 3S pack flies almost as well as Pinto
- battery life is tolerable
- Corvair passed power up check, time to strap it down and maiden
