    I planned to do a decent step by step but had to do this quick as my daughter is moving house over this weekend. So I managed this in about 4hrs. IMG_20180301_233909444_HDR-1024x575.jpg

    I would have liked to spent a bit longer on it but busy next few days. Everytime I book holidays to go fly, it goes tiitz up.
    All needs doing now is fcb on betaflight & esc's then set it up on my new Tx & no matter what I'm maiden it on Monday.
    I also started to repair am old build for a friend out of spare parts. Wait till you see this finished. & running an old ia6 pwm.
    Looking like a burst mattress.

    Here it is, I can't even find the top plate so I might just have to put a zip tie roll cage on it & bottom mount th lipo. IMG_20180304_014228166-1024x575.jpg
    The only pdb I had was a 40mm holes.
    It's only a crappy LOS for now.

    :rolleyes: ... Nice touch with the velcro bat bottoms ... you been peeking in my window ?
    Works a helluva lot better than just some rubber pad to keep the bats from ejecting don't it ?! :D
    Looks like your soldering has improved too .... nice job ! ;)
    But please tell me you're not just going to hang an ant right off that VTX ? :eek:

    I did have a tramp to go in but not really any need. The 200mw is plenty.

    Nope, it's to do with direction though.

    I just slap any old motor on although they did have directions on. I just change direction in blheli configuration.
    Big red nuts on the front. Red is my favourite colour don't ya know. :D

    Cowboy was close enough, the antenna are on the wrong side. In forward flight they are pointing down to the ground.
    What a dummy :oops:

    Isn't that where you are flying from?

    Seems many folks like it that way.

    The antenna tips are more or less pointing @ the floor instead of @ the sky.
    To me its wrong. Be ok high up but down low @ distance, a good proportion of the signal is hitting the ground.

    Yes, I

    I like it that way too!

    The red ziptie on the right arm is pointing the receiver antenna down. Works just fine

    I might just flip one around facing out back, see how it goes. I'm having trouble @ the moment with the evo Tx.
    My micro that works on my i6 is bound & set up the auxiliary switches set to ppm as it's the only build on ppm now. Done all the usual but it won't arm. Inputs showing up. I can turn the i6 on an it's fine it flies. I must be missing something new.

    All sorted, it's the only one on ppm & ibus was checked by accident I got 4 on it upto now. Back to work tomorrow, 5 days off & only 20min of airtime. :(
    But atleast my daughter is all moved & I got 5 birds eager to fly the next bit of decent weather. I just finished cleaning up my station space is tight in our flat so this is my side of the boxroom. IMG_20180306_205653110-1024x575.jpg

    Not really, the signal doesn't emanate from the pointy end, but from the sides.
