Re: ZMR250 "slim" + PDB and Sparky 2 from James

by mundsen » Fri May 15, 2015 8:17 am

Until there is a TauLink for my Taranis radio I have to use a FrSky RX.
I plan to use the FrSky X4RSB SBUS:
http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__ ... etry_.html

For the FrSky telemetry to work with Sparky 2 I have to use a inverter. I have ordered the components to build this one:
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=223&start=40#p3629

I have the TauLink USB module that I plan to use in combination with my Sony Xperia Z3 Android phone and the TauLabs Android GCS

To be able to test all the new TauLink possibilities I plan to use this GPS module:

When all this is installed on my ZMR250 I have a rather compact and HighTec mini quad :-)

I received some more parts today, so now I have what I need to finish the "power section".

I plan to design and print a mount for this that can be placed in the rear of the ZMR between the cente rplates:

And this that I plan to use for the "Camera module"

Wish you all a good weekend

Have designed a XT60 mount for this:

In the two other holes I hope to fit two Corn Lights like this:

I`m going to install 2 cornlights in the two holes. In this image you find a Cornlight where I have removed the plastic housing.

Some delay because I have to fix an error on my 3D printer.

I have received the mini PCB and ic for the telemetry inverter, only missing the diode.
+ I have the mini servo - so I may try to design the servo mount for the FPV camera tilt.
+ I hope to get the SMA adapter and mini 433Mhz antenna soon.

Have started playing with an idea for my next project - mini Y3 :-)

I have mounted the xt60 and 2 x cornlight rear mount. (blue led)

Tuned my printer and printed a new camera module/mount

Next:
- print the rest of the arm spacers
- design and print front cornlight mount
- solder the rest of the "power" module

Soon ready to test the quad (Busy at work until the end of next week)

New 433Mhz antenna for the integrated radio module.
Made a 3D model of the new antenna I plan to use (arrived today).
This antenna is for the 433Mhz radio module that is integrated on the Sparky 2

Next is to design and print a mount for the ZMR250 and find the best placement.

I have made a model of my 5,8Ghz FPV antenna.

I may try this 433Mhz antenna mount. The black part between the two orange parts on the antenna mount is a rubber vibration mount like this:

http://mikrokopter.altigator.com/vibrat ... qod31hg922

The plan is that if I hit something wit the antenna, the rubber part bends and I save the antenna.

When mounting I can adjust the mount to get the antenna closer to the frame.

I think this may work.

Have printed and mounted the 433Mhz antenna mount.

When using the rubber vibration reduction mount the antenna will "bend" not break if i crash into something.

I may use this idea for the GPS mount.

Next step is to design and print antenna mount (in the rear) for the FrSky RX antennas.

Cleaning up the wiring and soldering next

I have started sharing my 3D design for this project (if anyone is interested)
