So after my previous Alien 500 build which utilised X50 Aeroxcraft DJI style arms i decided it was time for a v2
This time bigger better more flight times and a better build so here we are once again at the start of what promises to be more sleepless nights mulling over which way to go.
This time round I’m going for X55 arms which will allow me to use 13” CF props, i originally hoped to be able to use 14” props but this isn’t the case, they clear the frame its just that the rear props hit the fronts
I wanted better landing gear this time as well so have opted to fabricate some out of cut down GF-L2 Carbon Fibre landing gear from an H4-680 frame.
So 13×5.5 CF Tiger style props will be swung by Tiger MN3110 470KV motors being ran by HobbyWing Xrotor 40Amp ESC’s.
Flight controller will be a Naza M flashed to V2 with PMUv2 and iOSD Mini for the OSD.
Going to try and keep weight AUW inc lipo to 1.5KG, with a 4S5000mah lipo i should be able to get 20 minutes flying .
OK so as allways loads of pictures and notes by each one. Click zee pic for the bigger picture.
OK so as allways loads of pictures and notes by each one.
First of all some pics of the nice 1.5mm thick 3K weave plates, handy hole layout too.
Funky red alloy spacers will go well with the Aeroxcraft arms
Checking out how the GoPro will fit on the frame.
Handy top plate as well ,mobius maybe? Or Foxeer Legend camera??
Mocking up where the landing gear will go under the frame.
And the CF legs in their mounts which will eventually be cut down to size.
Thumbscrews for the landing gear should i need to remove the legs.
Naza mounted on the top empty PDB and the ESC’s will be plumbed into the bottom PDB along with any accessories like navigation lights or strobes,.
All 4 arms fitted (dry) looking good allready.
Quick weigh session, this is with all 4 ESC’s and the Tiger motors mounted. 920grams
