So the mini hunter vtail was so fun to fly I thought I would try one a little bigger :)

Lynxmotion Hunter Vtail 500. Quanton or Sparky controller not sure which yet.

Did the maiden of the Vtail 500 this morning that is linked to in the above post. Little scary at first but turned out I mistakenly put the quanton with damaged sensor on it. Replaced that with a CC and then finally put a good quanton on it. I got my answer regarding mixes and autotune. It appears the bigger the vtail the closer the mix needs to be to the standard 64/64/64/64 mix in order for autotune to work. With the 500 I had to use standard quad mix and then after getting autotune values change the mix to the previous posted vtail mix. With that being the case I am not sure about a default vtail configuration. Motor layout and rotation stayed the same as previously posted for vtail.

update:
So I found there was flex in the tail assembly due to the 250g of motors hanging off it. I stiffened the tail which got rid of the random buzzing noise (vibration) and the vtail flew much smoother. Went back through the autotune process and found now it would complete correctly with the 64/64/32/32 mix. Maybe the increased power did not directly cause autotune a problem but flexed the frame more and the increased vibrations caused the tuning problem. This is a prototype 500 Vtail with 350W motors and not the standard 500 Vtail just in case I am causing some confusion.

And yet another build. This time a pretty yellow one like a canary :)

Hmm maybe a mustard colored canary anyway. Looks like I may need some esc extensions possibly.

The white one looks cool too. Kind of has an Imperial drone look going on LOL. I didn't need esc extensions after all and the wires are just long enough to reach the fc on the top deck.

Found a CC3D that has a bad rx port cable. If it will do sbus on main port I may be able to use it temporarily.

Put a X4R-SB rx on CC3D main port and got it flying. Very cool looking in the air and now probably my favorite little quad. The arms could stand to be a tiny bit longer as well as the tail but not anything that causes a real problem.

This is the PDB i'm using pug, but to be honest should have just done the same as you and used a standard PDB. you can see the current sensor on the power lines.

Nice build Pug and quick :)

hey car macguyver, what can you make me out of some lifesavers, a pen, packing tape, a wendys cup, and a tape measure? I feel like you need a challenge.
