Heewing T1 Ranger VTOL

Her are a few pictures of my new T1 Ranger VTOL. It is not ment for long endurance, but for having fun and testing out tilt motor VTOLs. All in a small and safe package :slight_smile:

The model sports a number of own design parts including front tilt-motor system, rear motor-mount, soft mount for FC (Matek h743 Wlite) ++. All printed in Onyx carbon reinforced nylon (Markforged x7).

It has Crossfire control link, ESP8266 Wifi telemetry, air speed sensor, quick mount DJI FPV camera-pod etc.
RTF including DJI camera pod and 1500mah 4s is 730grams.

I will be performing the first test-hops indoor and move outdoor as soon as the weather improves :slight_smile:

More rugged and still light landing gear bent and soldered together from 1.5mm piano wire. Clips into the the original mount. I need a landing gear to give some protection the vertical crossfire antenna.

I have now done the manual tuning in q_stab, q_althold and q_loiter and also tried out the new Quiktune script. The litte VTOL flies quite well now as a multirotor :slight_smile:

I am a bit short on space on my property for a full transition to FW, but I have tried several short (abandoned) transitions, and the Ranger seems to do well without loosing altitude. Next up is a full transition followed by a calibration of the airspeed sensor in loiter mode.

Super work, really great! :+1: I have the same idea in my head at the moment. Would it be possible for you to share the CAD files? Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
Martin

Very nice, Iā€™m looking for parts to convert my T1 Ranger, (the Hee-wing conversion kit is $159 crazy). I have a sky-hunter that i converted to VTOL so i have a good config to start from.
