yup you have a nice quick release mount...however, I just ordered the Tarot gimbal which is slightly different than your ebay gimbal so I will have to do a few modifications to the gopro buckle. Might even go with a standard screw mount from the gopro.

No flying for me this week, it's been -30C for a few days now. brrrr.

I did do the removable velcro mount for my ebay gimbal the other day, still waiting on some connectors and wires to come into the LHS so I can power my FPV and Gimbal at the same time.

Wow I don't blame you. I have a hard time flying when it's cold too.

Yeah but we are helifreaks! We have to reinvent things for ourselves even if someone has a great solution that's clear as can be!

getting down to the last of the original quad troubles. Esc not detected.

Painting the ffm 350 body.

And deciding to foil the new quad.

May tear apart the Dx5E, to swap out the air and trim o the DX6I, but thinking hard o nthat one?
All in small steps.

My projects today;
Got my Tiger anti-gravity motors today but the self locking props did not make it.

Tried to buy some stock Phantom props but they only had one set at the LHS.

Local club has a big swap meet in the morning. Mostly planes they say but some vendors from out of state are coming so I may go early and see if I can scare up some props. Otherwise I have to wait till Monday

Can't find those tiny bullet connectors. Guess I gota use bigger ones or just solder the motors to the esc for positive contact. Then I am committed, or should be

I wanted to be able to swap back if I wanted to by just using plugs. Oh well I still can use the "parts quad"


Then even though it does not look like it I cleaned up some wiring that was temporary and tried the new GPS. It got a lock in the shop while I was putting the top body cap on.

More testing is needed but I just looked out and the ground is already covered in snow.
Small scale for some of you but this is the South. Might fly in the snow anyway.

Installed Gorrila Bob's LEDs on one (my Stagility play toy)
And installed the Manutech Aviation CG camera mount on my other 350

I had to know what was going on.
After my last fast decent as the battery was failing I could not get it to behave in smart mode.
Flew great in stability inside at LHS.

In smart mode it would lift off and slam hard right until I hit the cut switch to save parts.

I could not get the compass calibration to engage.

So being the rocket scientist I am, I put on a new one. It seemed to be happy while I did the compass dance so what the heck, it's only 22 and snow showers and dark.

Lifted off smooth, hovered to see if the new GPS would maybe acquire some more sats since the sky has to be dense with snow.
Then I flew a couple of short runs and then about 400 feet away, and back!
I think I found the cure, if it does that in the morning.

So now I can fix the other one Monday when the other compass comes, I hope.
Just some info I thought I would pass on.

I also got my digital volt meter alarm mounted to see what it says a minute or so after the red battery light comes on. I stopped before it went red blue.
Happy happy






It's not over till the FrankenBlade flies.................

I hated to do surgery after it was flying so good but I wanted to try the new motors and props.

Props made it today for my conversion.

Got the motors installed and they all turn the direction indicated on the motor so the props fit correctly to self lock ( yea right) but no joy.

It spins up and sounds smooth and sweet and moves a lot of air weighted down in the shop with a 3 lb lawn mower blade but when I raise the throttle it gives off that "droning" sound (pun intended) I have heard before when one or more are turning the wrong direction?
Probably a dumb Hunner error.

Same thing outside un-tethered, duh!

I did the esc calibration.

I cannot tell if the air blowing up is because for some weird reason they are or if that is just coming up off the floor.

Weird stuff, I will have to wait till Monday to get professional help and maybe even get this quad going!
It's always sumpthin!

I think this thing is going to scream, right now it's only me.
I'm hoping this will give me control when descending with gimbal and camera.

Looks to me like you have all the props on the wrong arms.
#1, Front Left and # 3 Rear right turns CW
2# Front right and #4 turn CCW
Edit..I see the props are specific to the motor direction..well all I can tell ya is the way you have it set up is opposite of the way the 350 is normally.

Thanks for the reply.

I set it up like the arrows on the plastic 350 body as to rotation.

These motors were marked cw ccw.

The only instructions were for a Phantom and only pictures and few words.

I had to switch leads on a couple maybe that is because I had them in the wrong place but I sure thought I was following the layout as far as the 350 goes.

I think something like that is wrong but the props only spin on one way or the other depending on the threads on the motor.

Is the leading edge of the prop the strait edge and that feathered down the rear?

I always say I know just enough to be dangerous but think of the things people will learn when I work this out. ha ha

Yep..the straighter edge is the leading edge..grab one of your stock props and look at it for reference..the leading edge is higher than the trailing edge..that's the the pitch..works basically like a fan blade..as the air passes under the prop blade it's forced down producing lift. If you've ever stuck your arm out a car window and used your hand like. ""Wing" it will make perfect sense lol. If you rotate the front of your hand up your arm goes up..rotate the front of your hand down...the wind forces your arm down.
Hehe..brings back child hood memories

I just rechecked and I do have the motors spinning like the markings on the only surviving body I have.
Are you determining that I am not by the pitch of the props?

I hope this will be funny when it is solved, usually is with me.

I think I been at this too long today but I really want it to lift off. grrrrrr

You don't get much wind wing affect in a 49 chevy, ha

I sort of think I saw some where the silver hubbed two were at one end of the other and the black ones were also.
I have them staggered. May have to forget the markings on the motor and wire them so they spin up with the leading edge correct.
I have to ponder that a few.

Yes if the motors are turning like the 350 is supposed to..1/3 CW, 2/4 CCW then your props are backwards. Which in your case with those motors/props means you need to move the motors?? CW in the 1/3 positions and CCW in the 2/4

Ok thanks for the help, bear with me here.

If I put a prop with the proper tightening direction on a marked motor the props have a tiny arrow with a closed lock and and arrow in the opposite direction with an open lock.

Visuals for dummies.

However if I thread a prop on a motor so it tightens in the direction the motor spins, thus further tightening or at least not unscrewing it when running.

When I do that the leading edge is at the rear??

Ha ha this is driving me nuts.

The prop nuts that came with the motors would have the same issue. I will check the one set of slip on props Monday.

I'm obviously not comprehending this. nuts!

The props thread on opposite the direction of motor rotation.
Notice the props in the video are opposite of how you have them installed
