Naarmuton, a 180 size FPV quadcopter

Self milled from 2mm thick carbon fiber sheet.

Motor: RCX H1306 3200KV Micro Outrunner Brushless Motor (Performance Racing)


Motors, ESCs, PDB, power connector total137gr – 35gr = 102gr 

First flights without FPV, weight with battery 264gr:
Final setup with FPV capability, 230gr without battery and 302gr with 950mAh 3S battery. The FPV setup (camera + TX) added 32gr weight):


PID tuning

Really hard. Either the carbon fiber resonates or some motors are unbalanced. However with these PID values I got somehow decent full throttle:

I used betaflight with these new filters:

set gyro_cut_hz = 40
set pterm_cut_hz = 30
set dterm_cut_hz = 12

.. But returned back to defaults.






This is my version of a carbon 250 quad. It’s based on Hammer v 3.0 plans (big thanks!) but I have made some modifications that suit my taste.

The carbon pieces are self milled on 1.1mm carbide tool. 16.200rpm, 0.5mm layer, 210mm/min.


Each arm weights 10.1gr. Thickness 2.91mm. Modified from Hammer arms; removed that suddenly narrowing shape (weak point) and made it “evenly breakable”. They are still 100% compatible with the original Hammer design.



The two identical base body plates weighted 23,8gr each. They are 2mm thick carbon fiber.

Motivational assembly! 100gr total at this point.
