CARBONCORE Octo 1000

15 Dec 2012 17:08:24

This CarbonCore Octo 1000 is fitted with the megaRadius camera mount for larger cameras like the Red Epic - it kind of dwarfs my camera! The camera stabilization is handled by a HoverFly GIMBAL controller, which does not require external pots and is highly configurable.

To provide enough lift for heavy cameras, we are using T-Motor MT2826 motors and 2x 5800mah 5S LiPos. For trimming out and configuration we used APC 13x6.5 props, which worked well, but it is now flying with XOAR 13x6 beechwood props. For stabilization, it is using a Wookong controller. How does it fly? Like a dream, and it is absolutely rock solid. In flight video coming soon! - Just as soon as it stops raining ;-)

The frame, motors, props and speed controllers are all available from ElectriFlite. Please contact us if you need advice on the best combinations for your project.

This CarbonCore Hexa 950 has the new prototype, tall landing gear and a DJI Zenmuse camera mount. The frame, motors, props and speed controllers are all available from ElectriFlite. Please contact us if you need advice on the best combinations for your project. The new landing gear will be available from ElectriFlite early in the New Year

CarbonCore have developed a new, tall landing gear for their range of frames. It has a number of clever features which allow it to be used with many of the commercially available camera mounts and gimbals - Droidworx, PhotoHigher AV130, AV200, and DJI Zenmuse (both varients). Both the battery and camera mounts are on sliding rails, which allows for many combinations and accurate CG adjustments.

We will shortly be stocking the full range of the superb CarbonCore multicopter frames, some of which we already have and available for immediate shipment.

We have a large selection of motors which will work well with these frames and will be adding motor recommendations to the listings and bundling packages to help make it easier to select the best motors for your application. In the meantime, if you need any help selecting motors and other parts, contact us and we will be more than happy to assist.

The #1 cause of radio failure in computer receivers is insufficient and/or unreliable power supply. 2.4GHz receivers contain microprocessors, which to all intents and purpose makes them little computers, which means if they do not get enough power, they will "Brownout" or reset and have to reboot. Rebooting some receivers can take more than a second, which is enough time to re-kit your plane. The new FrSky reboots in milliseconds, but power problems could still be seen as a glitch.

It is essential that you ensure your 2.4GHz equipped plane has a sufficient and reliable power supply to ensure safe reliable operation. A quick and inexpensive way to visually check your power is to use one of these Voltage Checkers. If you stir the transmitter sticks(disconnect the motor first!) and see the voltage dropping down into the red, you should check to make sure you do not have any binding servos which are pulling too much current, and if necessary, upgrade your power supply with an appropriately sized UBEC.
