March Update!

Again I find myself working a long way from home and living in a hotel once more, but at least this time I have brought a few toys to play with. I've finally got around to installing those silicone anti-vibration mounts that I posted about a few weeks ago. My initial impression is that they feel a bit too rigid and probably only good for really high frequency vibration, but I haven't found the time to make a test to properly test them out.

Here is a picture of them mounted. Sorry about the poor picture quality, I took it using my tablet in bad lighting conditions. If the weather is good tomorrow, I will try and make a before/after video to show how well/bad they work.


In other news, I finally received the 450 V2 kit that I purchased from RCTimer and am starting to put it together. Unfortunately I don't have all of the items with me that I need to finish it, but I hope to try and get it in the air soon and do a little build log along the way. Eventually I plan on holding a little competition to give it  away, but I have no idea when that will be.

Apart from a couple of missing screws for mounting the motors, I'm pretty happy with what I received for $115. I'm going to add a Naze32 controller to it for control and will probably fit a set of Tarot folding landing gear to it. I recently learned a lesson to read the description on ebay a bit more carefully as I thought that I was ordering a landing gear set and was a bit disappointed when only one leg showed up in the post. The quality seems reasonable, so I will order another matching leg to go with it.

Here's a couple of pictures of what I received in the post:

  1. The fpv diversity receiver will be one of the parts of the drones that will have to be regularly updated and upgraded. The Drone for Farming will be helpful to identify where the various vegetables are growing. The Drone Pilot has done a huge amount of research work in recent times. They must know the exact controls. Drone for Hunting will probably have guns and cameras fixed on them as well.
