Recently I got myself a TBS clone quad frame kit from a friend so decided to try a 6s quad, I have a new Pixhawk from goodluckbuy at my disposal so might as well test it out

Specs!

– Frame TBS style with RCtimer S800 Arm
– Rctimer 5010/14 360KV Multicopter Brushless Motor (5.0mm Shaft)
– 14×5.5 Carbon Props
– 45A multistar ESC opto
– Pixhawk with neo7h
– 2200mAh 6s, it 2200mAh 3s in series will try 3000 later
– Rangelink LRS with FRSky Taranis
– 3D Printed Gimbal for SJ4000

S800 arm from rctimer are suck, if you plan to use it make some mod on it, I removed the brass stub that hold the screw and take a 3.5mm drill bit make a hole from top to the bottom (will post picture later), and take a M3 40mm screw to fasten the arm

Initial flight was fine but had a crash when trying autotune for first time, most probably my mid throttle are to high (500), the Quad only need around 30% to hover at 8A!

Turn out the issues with the motor and esc combination motor getting out of sync so I ordered myself 5x these

It almost crashed the second time but my good reflex save the quad from kissing the ground again

I get total 7min with 2200mAh 6s on this test will try 3300mAh next time and maybe 5000mAh 6s

Hopefully I can get the ESC before weekend so I can test it again with the new ESC

GoodLuckBuy ATT-X4-16 650 Quad

Been testing the frame for a while now still can’t get APM2.6 to fly properly with the frame, need more flight time on it, my current setup as follow

– ATT-X4-16 650 Quad (Goodluckbuy)
– RCTimer 650kv motor with 12×4.5 carbon nylon props
– F30A simonk ESC
– Hobbyking Power Distributor board
– RCTIMER gorpo2 brushless gimbal combo
– 4200mAh 4S 40c Ty-MAX lipo

Pro:

– Big Size! can take up to 13″ props
– Double CF plate top/bottom for motor mount which X8 configuration posible
– Foldable! easy for transportation especially when you use big props!

Cons:

– Frame come with no build instruction
– landing gear are a joke so flimsy might as well get a sturdier one
– heavy frame 400g+
– Fiber glass rod, invest some money on CF rod 12mm for landing skid 16mm for arm

I used 12×12 aluminum for my Gimbal mounting as I have no way to mount my gimbal with the 12mm rod, everage flight time 5 min  probarly the tymax battery is going to die early, and I have not even put my FPV gear yet , will have to figure out most efficient setup and props combination with the motor
