Any suggestion on Hardware Configuration for Heewing T1 VTOL?

Hi guys,

I’m new to VTOL. And I’m interested in Heewing T1 VTOL.

Is there any suggested hardware configurations?

I’ve got the Matek F405-VTOL for mine. My build is only partly finished because life has got in the way, but seems like a good choice so far.

I’ve been using SpeedyBee F405Wing and BZGNSS BZ-251 GPS. Have over 50 flights already. Still learning and tweaking ardupilot tunes.

T1 Ranger PNP-VTOL Conversion Kit suggests MatekF405-Wing and SN Fast Controller.

Is there any modification needed for flight Speedybee F405Wing?

BTW, what version (ardupilot) are you using for flights?

You need to use the 2 ESCs from the PNP kit along with the 1 ESC from conversion kit. I had bare kits without any ESC so I bough them separately.

Speedywing power distribution board does not have 4 ESC power pads like the Matek F405VTOL. All I had to do was solder 2 ESCs to one pad which was not an issue. No modifications needed. Running Arduplane 4.5.0Dev.


I recently tried a DIY drone, HEQ SWAN K1 PRO PNP this drone has VTOL function, also provides flight control and GPS, and it only sells for $399. If you are interested, you can also check it out
