Re: Kronos Flyer Series

No problem. I just added it to the ESC section of the BOM page.

HobbyKing sells many others. The one shown only costs $6 and I have found that it works very well. Also if you hook your ESC control cable up backwords it blinks to let you know you have done something wrong.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

Just a reminder folks. If you plan on setting up your motors and ESC's, you will need the appropriate programming card for the ESC, and a servo tester. These are inexpensive but very popular items. Don't wait till the last minute to pick them up. The links are in the BOM on the Kronos Robotics web s...

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

openpilot boards Also known as the CC or CopterControl board. This board looks to be as good as the NAZA for stability and control, and I would love to have tested one on my craft.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

What motors did you end up going with the NTM or the Sk3? I am also testing some Tiger motors for use with the Kronos Flyer. I want builders to have a lot of options. The Tiger motors are nice motors, but will cost you $50 each.

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

I used AutoCAD for those. I created all the models from scratch. I have just switch over to Autodesk Inventor. It has the ability to model wires and seems to be much better at rendering. I am just about done modeling the Kronos Flyer. Here are a couple renderings. http://www.kronosrobotics.com/multi...

Re: Kronos Flyer Series

Let me start by answering the first question. When I started this project I did a lot of research and purchased several controller boards on the low end of the spectrum. The KK2 board was one of these. I found it always in stock and very easy to hook up and configure. While tuning this board can be ...
