I totaled my Tarot FY680 Pro hexcopter due to a series of problems beginning with pilot error. The aircraft ended up falling out of the sky from about 90 feet. I salvaged five of the motors, ESC's UBEC and the motor mounts. At home, I had some spare parts for a Parallax Elev-8 (V2), and decided to build up en Elev-8 variant using the Tarot 4006 motors. The build is going fairly well, but I decided that I'd like to make this a flying video platform and so I added some Tarot clips to fasten carbon fiber rods for mounting the gimbal and battery (has to be position aft in order to counterbalance the gimbal/camera). But I discovered that the way I've installed the rods, there will be too much flex: I couldl not attach longer rods that would go the full length of the aircraft because the standoffs that hold the flight controller base are in the way. I've decided to fabricate another flight controller base and reposition the standoffs so I can run long rods the full length of the aircraft, resulting in stiffer mount for the gimbal.
