This frame cam with 3 lower decks.IE 4 plates in total. One of the extra lower decks is a PDB. I am not using this and have opted to use a smaller PDB in line with the project I am following. Also due to negative feedback on these integral PDB’s. (This one may be fine to be clear but given a separate PDB was £6.29 I went with the advice)
... Seems like a decent iron and at a surprisingly cheap price, makes me wonder how well the temp regulator works, but it's not overly important ... I run at about 350-400 C for most work.
Good solder sucker too (spring loaded plunger types blow those squeeze bulbs types away), got several just like it. But buy some extra tips while you're at it, you'll need them.
I'd get some solder wick too, it'll get up what the sucker leaves behind and comes in handy for cleaning up circuit pads too.
You should also get some flux too while you're at it.
Those ESCs have D-shot which is good, but since the motor's link is the ESC's link can't tell if 20 amps is enough .... I'd shoot for 30 amps though.
The motors/props combination will help dictate the right ESC requirement.
Heard good things about the radio ... don't think that RX is diversity though, and it's worth the extra money to have that imho.
Well known frame, but no specs. There were shortcomings with the originals (the pdb being just one of them) and later versions corrected that.
I think they're called V2 or maybe V2 point sumthin .... dunno .... You want the one with 4mm arms and 2mm plates not the thinner V1 stuff, which this may be (or maybe not)
I'm building my first quad as well, looked at those 4 in one ESC's and ended up going with a DALRC 4-in-1 40A 32bit Engine ESC, figure the 40a continuous should handle current and future needs, will see how it goes though.
Swap the standoffs for the rubber vibration mounts.
Better in my opinion.
If you can't get the parts under £100
There is plenty of kits on ebay from China. I just seen one for £60 or £59.34
Puda chameleon frame
F3 fcb Matek pdb
MT2204 X4 motors
All your missing is vtx & camera, zip ties
And a soldering iron & it's game on.
Normally I'd say stay well clear but it is so cheap & so much better than flying a cheap toys
. Like I did.
I got 2hrs out of a syma & jjrc. Then moved onto self builds so I basically learned on a zmr250. I just kept it low & slow then gradually built up. It was quite a few Lipo's before I broke anything.
this was my baby, I built it & I wasn't smashing it. It served me well.
Roger you can't go wrong with any of the esc's on RadioC.Com, especially the one I use. Pocket rocket. £5.90 Dshot.
If you can get any I just bought the last 9 again. But they will put them on back order.
... LMAO ... Me too, I mean you can get four mediocre Racerstar motors for $33 total or some hot rod T-Motors for $25 each.
Motors are something I don't like to skimp on, ESCs either, or flight controllers, or cameras, or VTX, or frame, etc, etc
.... hence the delima
Good builds & better builds.
Im sticking with the emax RS2205
& my esc. I know them, they know me.
Vtx I have been forking out lately,
Tramps & unifys. I was given a Betaflight F4 SD & liked it. So I'm in the middle of replacing the old sprf3 boards in the rest of the squad.
This kept happening to me when I started planning from UAVFuture's $170 build. By the time I made a tweak here, a tweak there, and added a battery, I was north of $300. With my recent direction change into the whoop size, they are closer to $100, but I already have 1 on the way, another I will order soon, and a kit to build another. It's a sickness I tell you. I'm not holding out hope for saving much money when I look at 100-130mm builds - if's anything like other hobbies, smaller and lighter mean more expensive.
