Breathe Some Life Into Your Old Quadcopter


Review, Videos / Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

 

Hello everyone welcome back.

In todays video I want to show you how you can breathe some life into a old poor performing quadcopter.

In this video I used the Eachine FB90 also know as the FatBee 90. The Eachine FB90 out of the box is not the greatest. It comes with a carbon fiber and plastic frame. The ducts themselves are too small and rub the 41mm 4 blade props. Flying the FB90 is nothing exciting. I originally found a frame that was really light. This was a 105mm frame sold by USmile. I liked the way it flew but the thickess of the carbon worried me. I dont beleive it will do to well in a crash.

The new frame I used is called the QWinOut Smart Carbon Fiber 100. I used this frame with a BetaFPV flight controller and some 8mm motors. It was a lot of fun but I wanted something that was 2s. It was time to move the FB90 parts into this frame to see how it would perform. I’m impressed by how well it flies. I’ve crashed it a couple times and there was no noticeable damage. You will see a light crash at the end of this video.
