EPP FPV Monster Plane

Post by Eric » Sun Apr 12, 2015 11:00 am

I've been working on the Hobbyking EPP FPV on and off for months and now it is finally nearly complete. Inside I have the Cyclops Tornado OSD with Autopilot. The receiver/transmitter is the simple FlSky Th-9X. I have a 700 TVL camera up front on a pan/tilt. This should work really well for extended SAR missions etc. Will soon find out :)

Cant wait to see this one maiden either :D Weather is pretty nice here. Really need to get my quad built out and in the air. Wanting to get an APM 2.6 as a controller/autopilot system. The Cyclops looks pretty interesting. Is it just "plug and play" or will it take a bit of tuning to get it working right?

A little bit of "tuning" for the gains and limits but should be no issue. The only big problem is the weather has been crap here for 2 weeks. Snowed like crazy a few days ago.

Blargh
