I’m going to use this article as a base starting point to outline all the mods and changes I’ve made to the quad since I first got it around December 2015. ??I’ll also provide some feedback on how I feel the quad performs as a sort of overview, but not a full in depth review in that sense. ??Look for updates in this article over time.
This is a conversion build log of the Twinstar II, which I built originally in 2007. It’s much easier to modify to FPV if the plane is not yet put together, but I still manage to get it done and you can see the various steps. I also have constructed a ground station and a charging station to go with it, among other FPV mods. ??The Twinstar is a tried a true flyer and as you’ll see I do some large mods to make it as stable and rock solid as possible.
This is a short music video montage from a recent flight in South Charleston Ohio. ??I hadn’t quite got the micro minimOSD setup completed the way I wanted at this point, however it was mostly there, short of some flashing in the video. ??I??managed to climb to around 387 feet. ??Once again I used the HeadPlay HD goggles for nearly the entire flight.. I usually take them off for takeoff and landing.
Here is a look at some video using the v303 / x380 (hybrid) quad from 3-27-16. ??This is prior to my micro minimOSD mods. ??At this point I still have the EZOSD mounted inside the canopy near the “eyes” (led lights), which often doesnt get a good altitude reading till after 3-6 minutes.
