I need to replace a Black Cube on one of my drones and ask if there any traps if the parameter file from the old cube is loaded onto the new cube?
So far, I have I reinstalled the latest firmware and copied the parameters across and it looks to be OK? Other than checking everything I would expect an accelerometer, compass and radio calibration would need to be done? If it flies, then do an autotune.
Yup…that’s all you have to do. Calibration is all you need.
Once you are done doing calibration you can use Mission Planner and can compare your new parameter file with the old file. There is feature under Full parameter list to do that. Any differences will be highlighted.
The ‘Beast’ looks a good solid build! I am planning a similar build but with some big props and low KV motors so I can improve the endurance and I already have some of those ESC’s in my bits box.
I’m ‘over’ trying jam everything into an ‘off the self’ frame so looking at designing a frame and getting a friend to cut it out with his CNC router. I need a battery quick swop system so still looking at that.
Where did you get those circular LEDs that were beneath the motors as they look great?
The Here I have is version 1 so a bit old.
Looks pretty good.
Tarot might be disappointed with you calling it a “Tarot ZD850” though since I think the ZD850 is one of those chinese made frame kits available from many shops within AliExpress and BangGood.
Some of them tend to call anything multirotor-related a “Tarot”.
It is definitely possible to do good builds with some of those non-Tarot frame kits though, as you’ve shown us.
I will post the pic of new design later today. Its a monster as I have extended the arms, and much bigger props.
as far as battery swap, if my lazy design engineer can finish my design I will bring to the market. Its a very unique battery swap solution… there are none available in the market at this point that you can buy off the shelf.
for motors there is no one like T-Motor. Burn the money but buy T-Motors…you will never regret!
That’s a monster! What motors are you using and how are you mounting all the electronics?
Thanks for the LED link and I will order a bunch of those.
Concerning battery mounts I have one of these which hopefully I can adapt to my Hex
Its a big bird. May be I can give my backyard Gopher a fun ride one day
I am using the same motors I had before inside the beast. T-Motor Anti Gravity MN4006 - 380KV. Each motor using dual 6S battery, using 15x5 prop, gives you 1258 Grams of Thrust at 60% throttle. so, 1258 x 6 = 7,548 grams of thrust without a problem which equals 7.5 KG overall lift capacity at @60% thrust. Later on I am going to put little bigger motors.
At 100% Throttle its 2609 x 6 = 15,654 grams = 16.6 Kg !!!

My reasoning is different. I like FPV style video. So DJI Goggles is a better fit for me.
I can record onboard as well inside the Goggles.
I can use the Goggles while flying.
I can connect an HDMI cable to a Monitor.
The only draw back is no full telemetry support yet. There is way around using an Arduino board to get more telemetry data inside the Goggle.
I think it will come down to personal choice.
Price wise I think both DJi Goggle plus Tx comes out to be the same. DJI might be a bit higher price.
mbuilds Yes, you need minimum tech ham radio license after X miles out in the US, else its considered illegal. Also Tx wattage has to be under x watts. For non line of sight flying need Part 104 license.
