This post is the 15th in a series of posts about the adventure of building the world’s lightest brushless FPV quadcopter: project pepperF1SH.
Long time no update on the pepperF1SH… I was busy testing new prototypes. I did some tests for the smallest framesize possible. Right now it is 50mm motor-to-motor spacing and uses those Hubsan tri-blade propellers. Still need to decide if i will use 10000KV motors or 8000KV for this build. Here is a short teaser for the tiny version:
A 67mm spaced prototype is also in the works. That one will use 65mm props on 8000KV and has the potential for a ~4:1 ttw ratio. stay tuned for more!
Anyone have a built esc they will sell me,fc too while at I guess but firstly esc since a 16×16 fc is currently on market?
Email me please if so,obviously I’ll pay for it.
Great work! I have ordered parts and waiting patiently to proceed with building one (or two) of these. What thickness carbon are you using for your frames?
the current pepperfish x frames are cut in 1mm cfk
Yes they are 0402. I’ve orderd these:
1469662, VISHAY CRCW04021K00FKED DICKSCHICHTWIDERSTAND 1K 1% 0.063W 0402
1469669 VISHAY CRCW040210K0FKED DICKSCHICHTWIDERSTAND 10K 1% 0.063W 0402
Just for those on ordering at HBE.
Have you already DYS 2030 3blade props. tested? They don’t work well on my build and I have some spare. Are you interessted as a donation from me?
Thanks for the offer. I think those would be too big for the 1S setup 😉
Hi, my basket on the HBE Shop is ready for order.
Only the resistors 1k and 10k are not listed there. Is a 1% and 63mW type OK?
Yes, 1% is fine. Make sure to order it in a 0402 package
Are these the props you are using?
What is the motor spacing on this new prototype? Looks to be less then 70mm
I updated the description with the link to the props i used. Motor spacing is 50mm 😉
This looks great! I am following along and have ordered most parts to try and build one myself. Do you know when you might have the files for the 4in1 ESC available?
I will probably test the new prototyp pcb today/tomorrow. So expect the release the next days.
You can find a BOM of the parts you are going to need using this google docs link.
