After building a few H-quad, I was in the mood for trying something new. And again the hardware (Not electronics) is from the local hardware shop. This time the main material is PVC pipe 32mm. Under you can see some pictures off the V-tail Quad.
It flies really nice and stable, and has a faster yaw movement then the H-Quad. Due to the angle off the tail motors.
Here you can see the front motor mount. Just zip tied to the PVC T-pipe that also works as a landing gear.
The rear motor mount is the PVC pipe cut at an angle at 25 degrees.
The KK2.0 controller and receiver are inside the electrical box. And the batteries go directly under, two 3 cell 2200 mAh on each side.
The ESC are inside the pipes, and the cables goes in under the electrical box.
In front there i room for HD camera and FPV camera.
Since the pipe parts fit together nice and tight. They are just secured together with a screw.
Because off the V-Tail it is easy to see the orientation when flying in line of sight.
The weight is 1030 gram without battery and camera.
The dimensions are:
Front motor to front motor: 590mm
Between the rear motors: 300mm
From front boom to tail boom:600mm
Hope you enjoy
