Fancy stuff, but why is the 3 position switch on the Taranis not good enough?
Are you not going to lose warranty once you open the casing and add things?

Yes it is,but even though I don`t have a use for the 6 position switch yet it was so cheap I thought might aswell order it with the the other stuff and get lots all at once,also I love modifying stuff...that`s why I became a mechanic lol!

Adding a lot of cheap things eventually become one giant expensive order. I've cancelled several shoppinglists at Banggood because they became too big. I go looking for one or two items, and end up with a massive list, spending way more I was planning for. Laughing Stuff in China is relatively cheap, half price or cheaper, and with the free shipping they offer at Banggood it's hard to ignore. And besides quadcopter parts, they also have a lot of other innovative gadgets you don't even find on this part of the globe.

Those are really nice connectors ,quite small and makes it almost impossible to shortcut the wires.


One thing is important though, to make sure the wires are connected properly so the motors turn the correct direction.
With loose bananaplugs it's possible to switch a few connectors easily, with the MT30's you may need to desolder some wires.

I just wiring the motor connectors straight and on the ESC side 2 straight and 2 crossed,then can just unplug ESC and swap over if needed.

Here is a comparison of the Tarot 280 frame with the Tarot 330 frame.
As you can see the main body is virtualy the same size and it`s just the arms that make the larger size.

Doesn't differ much in size indeed. The 330's body actually looks a bit smaller. The 280 is same size as my Eachine Smile , which is supposed to be 250 but turns out to be 280mm.

Can understand the long wires from the motors, cause they have to span the length of the arms. But the wires between plug and ESC's are quite long, is shorter wires not better? Have you already thought about where to put the ESC's?

Wll shorten the ESC wires when I get further on,just leaving them for now while I see where I`m going
and how I`m going to route things.

I'm going to try to make them on the legs, if possible. Though had another idea that could be useful, might try that if putting them on the legs doesn't work.

Find some thick plastic sheet, cut out a creditcard sized rectangle. Make some holes to strap the ESC's with tie wraps. And a few extra holes to be able to strap the card to the quad.

For extra cooling you could make a few holes behind the ESC's, so the side that's on the plastic card gets cooled also.

Made a small example:

That yellow canopy is stylish. Strange how tiny the motors look on this frame. Smile
Hope your not planning to put the flightcontroller at that spot though, seems a bit precarious.
If the quad lands upsidedown it could get damaged easily

The yellow also makes it easier to find if the quad crashes in high grass.

Maybe I'll make a Canners 180 build topic in a few days, to have a place to show my stuff. Smile
Got most of the quad in loose parts complete, but still waiting for a bunch of items. Cool

Cool, they are bigger but still quite small.

I'm just hoping my 20 amp's will be good enough to do the job for my quad.

cool

20 amp will be fine with 5 inch props and they have a 10 second burst mode of 30 amps,it`s just I'm going to use 6 inch 3 blade props and from what I`ve read and seen they will draw to much amps for a longer period with 20`s that's why I got the 30`s.

I'm going to use 4 inch props, so then the 20 amps would be enough. Only I'm not sure how the ESC's(and motors) will handle the battery I bought to use with the 180 quad. It is a Dinogy 4s 1300mah 65c. Only bought one so far, planning to get more once I get the quad to fly, but I'm a bit scared the battery might be too powerful for this setup. Surprised

Damn those things are bright. Cool  Very nice

I also got a Matek PDB, but another version, not sure if I can make the LEDs blink like that.

If it`s got the LED light pads to solder to on the board then it should.
