In this episode, Josh and Peter show you how to rig a small quadcopter with the Hyperion mini 600 TVL camera to fly FPV!
Using FPV on a small platform like the Blade Inductrix or Blade Nano is a great way to start learning to fly FPV without breaking the bank.
The Hyperion camera plugs directly into the model’s receiver for power and weighs 4.5 grams. It’s smaller than a thimble and has an ideal signal range for small park flyers or racing quads.
To attach the camera to the Blade Nano, start by cutting 2–2.5 inches from the lead. Measure the unit before you cut to make sure your cord is long enough to reach where it needs to go.
Remove the flight controller board from the quad so the solder points are easily accessible.
Double check your polarity so you solder the correct wires together. In this case, we soldered the red to the white because the white was positive and the black was negative.
When you finish soldering, plug the battery leads back in and glue the camera on. Then put the canopy back on and you're ready to fly!
If you’re rigging the Inductrix for FPV, take the cover off so you can access the solder points, solder the wires and glue the camera on.
Once your mini FPV quad is ready, fly through a course like the one Peter created, or make your own and share with us!
PDF PLANS FOR PETER'S RACE COURSE WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!
