Hi there RC people

It can be a lot of fun to buy / order up a ready made RC, and go out & fly / drive it right away On the other hand great satisfaction can be found in selecting all components yourself and then build the craft
This allso gives you more insight into how things really work (and how they do Not work )

The objective in this project is to build a POWERFULL FPV quadcopter. My last build was an experiment into a very Light build.. Not this one.. This one will have beefy motors.. beefy ESC's.. all that

This series will be quite a nr. of video's and I'll try to put as much info into the individual video's as possible. This allso means the project won't be ready in just a few days as well offcourse

Let's first have a look at the frame for this build



Parts selected for this build:
Quadcopter frame: GEPRC GEP-AX5 Airbus frame
Flight Controller: F4 V5PRO Flight Controller
ESC's: DYS XSD30A ESC's
Motors: DYS Storm 2207 2550kv motors
Lipo: Hyperion G7 HvLi Graphene lipo
Props: DALprop Cyclone v2 5046C
FPC cam: RunCam Swift CCD camera
FPV antenna: Foxeer antenna
Receiver: FM800 PRO FASST Sbus receiver
All kinds of planes, multi rotors, heli's, cars & boats..

Halloa!

Update time on this Monster-quad build We'll be adding motors & ESC's to our setup.. Now in the past I'd be bench-testing motors, but in This series I'll try to make thing more about How to actually build a quadcopter.. So in that sense this series is more for people that have not build (manny) quadcopters yet

Here we go:

Halloa!

Update time on this Monster-quad build again! This time we'll be adding the Power Distribution Board (PDB), Flight Controller (FC) and Video Transmitter (VTX).. In this case it will be an all-in-one board: the HGLRC F4 V5Pro board.. Handy pandy!

And.. here is my final build-episode in This series This time we'll have a look at the firmware of the (BLheli) ESC's and the firmware (Betaflight) of the flight controller

This is more a general purpose video for people that have just build a quad, or got a RTF one in...

Update time!
Soo.. a few weeks back I crashed this quad so hard, that the FC / VTX kinda died on my :| Happens right??
Sooo.. I replaced those with:

FC + Receiver: Matek F411-One Flight Controller + XSR Receiver
VTX: AKKtek FX2 Ultimate 1200mW VTX

And here is what happened
