Hal finally put the Tweaker 180 in the air at the park around the corner from our house.
This is the largest multi-rotor aircraft we’ve ever built from scratch and Hal did all of the assembly and programming himself. This is no minor feat considering that we’re using an F3 flight controller with an Adafruit GPS that we raided from my Arduino component stash, and there is precious little documentation available online which discusses how to make this all work.
Without even going to full throttle, we clocked 58MPH in two speed runs here.
Build Specs are:
Tweaker 180 carbon fiber frame.
Scorpion Precision brushless motors w/30A speed controllers.
Seriously Pro (SP3) F3 flight controller.
MXK NAZE32 power distribution board w/OSD
Foxeer 200MW video transmitter.
Lemon DSMX satellite receiver.
Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout V3.
3S Lipo 2250mAh battery.
Spektrum DX7 (DSMX) radio with Fat Shark Dominator V3 FPV goggles.
