PostSubject: 130 crash and rebuild   Sun Feb 05, 2017 1:15 pm

Had a bad connector on the flightcontroller which caused a short that made the motors spin up on their own.
For a while I could do a quickfix by pressing real hard on the connector so it would make good contact again,
but after a while I decided it would better to properly repair it before the selfspinning blades turned into an accident
Used a spare connector from another FC and rebuild te quad. Also made the frame lower with selfmade standoffs.

The standoffs looked strong enough, but at the first crash, all standoffs had exploded off from the quad. That was a quick lesson not to use plastic standoffs for frame support next time.
Broke a wire from the camera, freshly replaced connector completely broke off the flightcontroller, which could not be repaired, videoantenna got busted, even some propblades broke off.
And the crash wasn't even that hard, more like a soft dive into the ground. Rolling Eyes







Took the old CC3D flightcontroller out of the Eachine250, flashed it with Betaflight3.1, and rewired it to fit the 130, also could repair the other things.
This time I used aluminium standoffs. I was out of 3"propellers, so i cut some 5inch props down to 3inch size. Now it looks like this :











Did first real testflights outside today and it flies great. 

cool
