Title: First build. Had to share 😃
Post by: Austin7 on April 10, 2019, 02:43:46 AM
Built this up from the andyrc channel.  Nice learning curve with Betaflight.  Never set up a Taranis before so feel like Iíve gained a lot.  Flies really nice compared to my old Walkera tank.

Only had one pack with me and it was quite windy. Just me stood in a field on way home from work.  ;D

I am getting this error 'This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it on copyright grounds'
I am guessing that you put some music on it and YouTube doesn't like it?
So although I can see front image of field it wont play for me  :(

Looks good. Cheers.
One thing to watch is the battery cables. I see you have velcro on the battery cable but not sure if that's enough. If a battery is ejected in a crash it could pull the cables from the 4in1 esc damaging it!! So ideally get a cable tie on the battery cables to either the frame or post.
Looks great, I have a Martian3 as my main quad at moment and I do like it. How long have you been flying?

Looks like it flew fine :)

Thatís a good tip.  Yeah really donít fancy ripping the cables out of my all in one.
Been flying since last summer.  Family and work get in the way but try and get out when I can. Bought a Rotorious micro to fly around the garden from drone junk yard as a side line. Canít believe how well the micros fly!

The micros do fly well when you get a bit of space. I have a Mobula7 and it's great fun outdoors, just wish the batteries lasted longer  :)

   I just ordered another Martian 3 off E-Bay.  It's going to be a 5 Inch GPS Quad with iNAV. Great value and nice and roomy for a GPS build.   Nice build BTW...:)

 I recently trashed my F330 or rather Betaflight 4.0 did it in spectacular fashion, I hit the Arm switch and it took off vertically at maximum warp speed all by itself. Something to do with the PIDS and a runaway situation bug in 4.0.
  It should NEVER apply max throttle just because the PIDS are off.....ffs. Good job I went outdoors to hover test it.

 Be warned if trying Betaflight 4.0 Firmware....!!!!....Im not the only one it's happened to either...so be careful.
