Advice on parts for a tarot 680 pro hexacopter build.
« on: February 04, 2016, 06:19:54 PM »
Hye guys, I am after some advice please. I will be getting the following Hex and FC quite soon and am wandering if some of you could give me some advice on speedy's, motor and prop size etc.

Here are a couple of links to what I know I am getting so far

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__80554__HKPilot32_Autonomous_Vehicle_32Bit_Control_Set_with_Telemetry_and_GPS_433Mhz_.html

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__54311__Tarot_680PRO_HexaCopter_Folding_Frame_3K_Carbon_KIT_.html

I am in need for some advice on the rest of the gear that is needed, motors, speedies, props and any other bits and pieces that may be required.

I am looking at either a 3s or 4s setup.

Thanks in Advance,

Cheers Dave.

Hi Dave, I had a Tarot 690 set up on 4S 8000mAh battery with 650 kV motors (I think) & 12x5.5 APC props. Was an aerial photography ship with a 2 axis gimbal for a Sony Nex 7. Flew quite well. I used http://www.ecalc.ch to sort out the setup, very handy.

Hey Mr Squiggle, thanks for your input mate.

I was originally looking at the s550 from hobbyking and using the Pixhawk as a FC, but then  I was able to get a Tarot 680 pro as mentioned above.

What brand motor and speedys were you running?

I am even thinking of getting the s550 for now and building the Tarot 680 up over time as a project.

Cheers Dave.

The motors were SunnySkys and the speedys were DJI 30A. Flight controller was a Naza V1 with GPS.
I hope you've got a use for it, they're not exactly exciting things to fly.....

I was thinking of strapping a camera to it or something?

Plus I haven't had a hex and want to build something lol.

Cheers Dave.

There's loads of threads with Tarot 680's and GoPro cameras with gimbals on Heli Freak, go have a look. There's no shortage of advice!

Well, there is no turning back now.

I had something waiting for me when I got home today, WooHoo.

I traded a trex 450 pro fbl airframe for this and I am happy with the trade and I put the Qav 250 up against the tarot 680 pro for a size reference.

Now, overtime I will gather the bits for it and get my build on.




Cheers Dave.
