Shopping list for my micro FPV quad

DSC08464

Lots of people have asked. What is the spec for the tiny 25 gram quad you used in your demo at DARC? And in this flight at the Nordic Media Days?

Here it is:

Quad: Blade Nano QX – BNF Version (Horizon, A-main)
You don’t want the RTF version. You really want to control this with a proper radio. So buy a suitable DSM2-module for your favourite radio and use that. My favs are my second hand Futaba 9C and my FrSky Taranis.

DSM-modules:
JR / Spectrum, works out of the box.
Futaba, needs USB-stick to change the channel order if you want to control the Blade with it.

FPV:

Video Tx
Camera
Wide angle lens
Voltage step up and filter

Then you connect power from the main battery to the step up adapter and 5V out of the step up to the video Tx and the camera. The last cable is video from the camera to the Tx. And off you go.

If you don’t have a FPV base station you need at least a video Rx and some goggles.

Vaaaat? Tx? Rx? Soldering? If in doubt, start with this one. Not the same video range, not the wide angle lens, but plug and play for noobs.
