As winter is comming, theres not somuch possibilities to fly outside so i decide to reuse some Syma X5C (FPV mod) components an try to create full acro FPV capable micro quad for indor flying.
As i would like to stay low with price i chose Tiny whoop 95mm (some QX95 clone) frame for 1s Lipo with brushed motors, and use my Radiolink AT9S TX and EV200D goggles
Frame: QX95 clone
FC: F3 OSD brushed
Motor: 8.5mm 8520 brushed
VTX+Camera: JMT 5.8G 25MW 40CH 800TVL Transmitter
RX: Radiolink R6DSM (as still waiting for slow ship, im using the big brother R12DSM (diversity)
550mah 1S Lipo from SYMA X5C (nearly end of life, but ordered some GNB’s)
Components which I can reuse from SYMA:
Camera with VTX:
JMT 5.8G 25MW 40CH 800TVL Transmitter
3.7v 650mah Li-Po Battery
8.5mm motors (updated from 7mm)
components to order
F3 Flight controller with OSD
Eachine EV200D goggles
I’m using reversed frame orientation (top is bottom) to keeps battery as close to possible to center of gravity.
There’s also some modification on frame (cutting) to fits VTX and antenna. I also modified VTX and cut video line betwen camera and VTX and connect them to FC to see OSD. WS28Led not works on mine. As Battery strip Im using very light strip from TOPK charger.
As first I get ready all the compontents:
So lets fly…
how it fly?
It flies quite lazy as Sima Lipos are very cheap, but its is good for start and training.
I spend few hours with adjusting rates as there was quit strong woobling on descent. I found pretty good setup, but main reason I think are still weak batteries.
After 3 hours of flying I broke one arm, so waiting for another frame (and arm protectors)
