Back again with my octocopter!!
It’s been some time since i built the frame and did some tests with an e010 fc board and a crappy camera. That was not right. An aircraft so much bigger than a whoop (135mm) can’t fly well with that board.
I had to wait but now it has a camera and a FLF3 evo flight controller. Camera mount is a bit messy, i know… After raising P and D a lot, it flies really well, but still couldn’t tune yaw ok. Yawing is not accurate, it has some residual yawing after releasing the stick, but it’s totally flyable. Don’t know if i’ll be able to tune it or if it’s just something that happens because this flight controller has only 4 channels for motors, and not 8. Besides that, being this a quadcopter flight controller, it flies awesome with 2 motors soldered to each pad.
I tested it with 240mah, 500mah and 720mah, and noticed little difference between them. It should have more power than you can see in the video below, because my batteries are already a little bit degraded.
Now i want to make the arms a little bit shorter. Those props are big and still it there’s some separation between them
So happy with this build, so fun to fly!!
