OK so I’ve documented the last two builds via various blogs and videos, this is just a quick collection of pictures and notes from build #3.
Few things to note on this build.
As tidy external appearance as possible.
GPS telemetry back to ground station using TBS Xfire Micro RX,.
No extras in this build its a simple build and I’ve made it so i can remove the wings.
No UBEC this time, the Hobbywing ESC has a 7amp UBEC built in.
So again as always click pictures for bigger versions,and please leave comments or ask questions.
Weaved motor wires to help reduce RFI/EMI interference.
Love hobbywing ESC’s real quality bits of kit and this will have the brake programmed for a better glide ratio.
Couple of folding props.
Cut a small access hole to allow easy access to the ET Vector USB Port.
Decided to mount the TBS Micro Receiver in the aft portion of the plane on a small piece of foam, dipole mounted vertically.
Here you can see the BST connection from the ET Vecter GPS into the crossfire BST connector for telemetry back to the ground station.
Mounted the v2 GPS at the rear and flushed mounted it a little lower.
Testing different positions for the VTX.
Nice and tidy with twisted cables where possible and here you can also see the Flytron Microphone for audio.
Opened out the V-Tail server channel holes.
Hinged the top hatch.
Couple of external pictures, I epoxied a mobius mount onto the pod
And a final couple of pictures of my talons together
