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.
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.
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.

Takk for liste og bra føredrag, det skal bli kjekt å prøva som pilot!
I bought the stuff minus the step up voltage regulator since the TX/camera have an internal step up regulator. That works until motors start. Noise from motor/electronics makes the image useless. (Kind of knew that). The regulator with filter will fix that. As an alternative I could use a separate battery.
BUT: my Nano is not able to stay in the air for any prolonged time with the added weight. With the regulator/filter or another battery it will be even a bit heavier.
Do you think my Nano motors worn out? Or perhaps my batteries are weak?
Any advice in the matter are welcome!
