The Tyro you made for me is so sweet! Can I run it on a 4S battery?
Hi John! Yes you can! You just won’t maximize the range, but it’ll run well. I’m glad you’re enjoying.
Do you guys build any other mainstream DIY kits? Like Hobbypower’s H250 quad?
Hi Jamie. We can build anything you like! Anything we don’t have in stock of course, will take a bit longer. If there’s enough interest in a typical DIY build, we can source them and retain stock. AndOr we can do a custom-build for you, for instance, for the H250. Just send an email to DronesByFred@gmail.com. Thanks for your interest!
All: Feel free to let us know either here in the blog, or by email, of any builds you’d be interested in! There are a lot of them, so we don’t stock them all. Thanks!
I see on your main page that the MARMOTTE is ready…. I don’t see it in SHOP. I’d love to see some pictures, that frame looks bad-a$$! Thank you.
Hi Brandon! Yes, just go to SHOP and it’s there. Bear with me as I get more pictures up, but there are a couple at least. She’s a sweet flier! ‘Wish I could get the parts for less, but dang, the cost of EVERYthing electronic has gone up a ton since the Pandemic/Supply/Shipping disasters. I’m doing the best I can. I really want to get as many pilots flying these as possible since they’re SOOOO much fun! And this one is BEAUTIFUL too!
What gear do you use personally? A lot of the drone guys list theirs. It would be good to know, especially since yours are BNF. Would like to know how you test.
Hi Joe. Sure, I’ll post all my gear in the “About Us” page. Primary gear:
Radio: Taranis XD9 Plus SE
Receivers: R-XSR primarily
Goggles: FatShark Scout / DJI V2
I’ll added the rest in the About page. Thanks for asking, great idea!
What ‘fine-tuning’ do you do on your drones?
Hi Jon. We do accelerometer calibration and trimming to auto-level and position-hold as best as possible. We also do PID tuning for a smooth, responsive flight experience. These drones fly sweet out of the box.
Thanks Fred. I’m enjoying my Tyro. Any models being planned?
