I dont know if anyone knows this yet but www.RCTimer.com has been getting into multi rotors lately, they recently came out with DJI clones and now they are selling them which seems like a good price. Plus they have the KK board 5.5 (probably a clone) for extremely cheep.
Just wanted to tell you guys about it.

Thanks Johntra !! I always loved the RCTimer brushless motors and esc's, they are great. They charge very low shipping and they ship FAST !

Thinking about ordering the RM450 V2 frame. I still have 4 of the 2212-15 (930kv) and some 30A esc's. But I also heard that the landing gear/strips are quite weak. But I noticed that they also offer spare arms (!).

But hey, usd30 + usd2 shipping is a good deal I think !! What about you ?

Mark.

I think I am going to wait until they have the 450 V2 on the kits and pick up a NAZA off of eBay.
I just really like contacts to solder to.

Johntra, I just had contact with Nina from RCTimer and they will inform me as soon as the V2 kit will be available. Keep you updated ! Mark.

I ordered a v1 as I already have a PDB (power distribution board) I can use.
Best way to determine if they are better than my own DIY ;)
They do look better...

Yes its nice to be me ;)

There are 2 bags of screws in the box. 24pcs and 16pcs
The 24 are to hold the centreplates and the 16 are intended for motors

The supplied allen wrench is crappy (soft material) I used quality bits instead.

It is much easier to solder ESC's if you do not bolt it together completely.


Now I have to source 4 TGY 18 Plush...as I have the rest to build yet another MultiWii Quad

some threads

unpacking


quick assembled


I will have to undo all screws again as I will solder to the lower plate and when its time for assembly I will use blue Loctite.

No "standard" mounting holes for KK/MultiWii boards :(
(need to come up with an adapter that goes on top)

It was meant for the Naza controller. But i was always confused about that controller cause the mount it on the side which isnt the cg. I thought the controllers always had to be over the cg?

The controller does not have to be dead center - there is no controller I've seen that has all sensors in the cg - if so they would be stacked on top of each other. My Paris boards has the sensors to the side...

I will compare this frame to my own DIY frames - I cannot compare it to the original, so far it feels just as rigid as my own frames made from 10*10mm aluminium.

The reason I bought this frame is to see if I can have a stronger frame as mine was to flexible to lift 2Kg (aiming at hobbyking beerlift 2012)
