Thanks man, its actually the FPV gear that came with the FatShark Predator. I manufactured the mount for it, which means the FPV gear clips on (No Screws), Stick it on the plane and off you go. I should do a video on this little fun machine. Mind you the flight time which is normally 20-30min is reduced to about 10 -15 min . . poor little Kinetics has to work hard with this on its back lol
I should do a little video on this one
BTW: The owner of this plane (Thomas) Doesn't like the FPV gear on his Kinetics
Mark, Thanks a million for the like, I'll check it out now
My plan is to have a little bird that I can FPV with, but without the Main Receiver and mast antenna etc. So basically if I have the model in the car I can put on the Predator Goggles and fly I actually thought of buying 2 . . mind you Thomas and I are still waiting for HK to print off the order . . 3 days. I feel like flying to HK and pressing the print button myself
Check all the FPV pics in the RCG thread.
That made me order the mini SW and the FPV items at fpvhobby.
Last week I ordered an extra set with them and it is already delivered (from Istanbul).
Very good service from these guys, somethink for HK to learn from I guess.
Gonne use the extra kit on the kinetic and some small quads (HK Talon V2 and RCTimer RM450/550).
Will post build logs and pics on the flitetest forum off course !
I have a problem maybe some of you guys can help me with. My prop broke and of course I couldn't get a replacement from HK. I decided to buy one from the LHS that is similar in dimensions. (8x6) the problem arises at the spinner end the part that has the shaft from the spinner through it is smaller than the original so it is possible for the prop blade to slide up and down along the spinner shaft. I have solved this by making a couple of tubular shims about 1.5 mm long and slipped those onto the shaft first. This has stopped the blade from sliding along the shaft and seems like a good idea. Now here's my question: should I have made 2 shims per blade and put one on each side of the blade to make the blade sit at the center of the shaft? I have not had a chance to fly the Kinetic yet and am worried that by having only 1 shim per blade there will be more vibrations from the motor because the blade could be slightly out of balance. I have attached a pic that will show what I'm on about. I have also noticed that the motor has a slight rattle when spun by hand but that disappears as it spins faster, any ideas on that as well. Could they be related? I bought this plane second hand and it seemed a bargain at the time.Sorry about the quality of the pic.
Mark it not my x525, its a mates one . . . (He lost a TriCopter in a lake a few months back) I'm yet to have a go at quads, but I do plan on trying it soon, but I would like something beefy enough to carry my DSLR . . guess that makes me an idiot too lol
