Oh the jy.. I just manually calibrated 15 esc's & found 3 duds.
The original I opened fresh, one I must have thought I did & then other 13 the second & to last was a dud. Suppose after using about 60 of these & having 7 duds is not bad. So now just the servo problem. Betaflight Seems to get more servo travel than inav when I plug the lipo in. But still no travel from stick input. Rx tab the stick inputs move & the servo tab it looks like it's all OK the bars move correct.
I may end up doing that setup Jackson posted. I suppose I got a decent 30amp for a bigger motor if I do a future wing.
So I managed to get it up
Ended up going old school, there is literally only 5 components.
And getting 15 mins off a tattu 4S 1300mah. Top speed about 70-80mph
Well its fast anyway.
My mate ended up buying one for his lad.
As this build with iNav was a pain.
I've always wanted to build a wing and seeing this build isn't helping! I love how simple the whole setup is and the Wile E Coyote is a nice touch
Betaflight no good for anything but drones. This barebones setup was a sinch.
I just had trouble with with iNav on that new fcb for wings. Don't let this guide put you off.
No I'm sorry, after reading my post I see how I worded that incorrectly. I mean that this build is making me want to build a wing even more! Building a drone has helped me appreciate simpler setups a lot more lol
Are you in the US?
They are a buck a piece in the store.
Lotsa support and plans.
I should have built mine like this, a pusher.
A few of my Lipo's are puffed now so looking for a bit of extra flight time at the end of a session. It's not that smooth yet,plus it's been windy and good weather coming for a few day next week, but that's it summer's over. it's back heavy, a lot.
I got the CG but with added lead. I bought the prop mount but decided I'm not bothered by noise & would bring the motor nearer the CG so as not to add lead. No fpv in it or cam yet but will still need lead. Frame is 400g+ on its own, without the lead..
More than an acro build but I'd rather be hit by an EPP than carbon arms of death. last weigh in was floating around 726g. Hard to weigh on my suspect lookalike drug dealing scales.
So the Mrs said anyway.
Being hit by one of these EPP wings on a pusher prop would only wake you up.
Even at 50mph that would be one hell of a pop on the head but it would more than likely deafen you from the noise & crap your pants. Leaving you with your hands in the air, puzzled like inspector cluso.
It was fun more so than a quad due to the fact that I spent alot more time than I should have done. Then I just basically threw it & hoped for bit of luck.
Second throw it was up and used two paks just keeping it up in wind.
I need to either play with throttle curve or adjust pitch, maybe less surface movement. Feels to sharp at low to mid throttle, a bit jerky but fine or what seemed fine with LOS at full stick.
The dark nights are drawing in already so I just orderd some 3v led's. I'll just heatshrink a pin then heatshrink the led to that and push it in. Easy.
I did originally say to cowboy I was just going to do this setup but then you see fcb's for wings and complicate things.
I tripped right from the go with config and firmware version not matching.
Then the smix I see 10.50.100.10.50.100
& it sends my head west. Dud esc's.
Oh the frustration. Inav launch failed like half a fart in a balloon. Once this dies or when I get my bonus from work, whichever comes first I will be getting the mini drak or vortigaunt by rite wing.
On a 2kg motor.
Yes I am! Looks like I just found my next build! Thank you for the info!
