Here are some buildlog element of the second revision of the excellent LKTR120. Now, the V2 includes a 120deg camera with a DVR recording in 720p while broadcasting FPV signal in NTSC format and everything under 80g.
I was planning to produce a full builtlog & configuration for this machine. Unfortunatly, I lost some parts 🙁 … So instead to present nothing, here are some draft elements, I managed to save
SOME BUILDLOG STEPS
1) Screw standoff
2) Mount motors
3) Attach landing gear
5) ESC installation
Use some double side tape to secure the ESC installation
Motor’s connector must be installed as following on the FC
6) Install the camera & DVR
The camera ribbon must be install above the FC. Some taller standoff would have been great to install both the camera DVR and VTX inside
I was not able and decided to install the VTX on top
You can secure the uFL/IPX connector by some hotglue or some liquid electrical tape
Be aware, the last DIP switch (POW) switches between a 25mW or 200mW in power emmission
7) Final results
8) Transmitter End points configuration
Partial Buildlog videos
Here is a small tutortial how to install betaflight
I start with the default Baseflight OS and found some basic PID’s setting to have an almost oscillation’s free machine. The results are already great…. It’s a super machine for sure….
It’s a super machine for sure. You need a nominal level skill to assemble it and take some extra precautions (to protect motor’s wires, to electrically isolate FC with surrounding parts, to jail everything into the frame). Anyway, I am extremely impressed by this machine. The 720p videos are really good and both the control range & video range great (> 200m without problems).
+ Less than 80g !!!!
+ Super micro machine !!!!
+ Complete RTF machine
+ Beautiful machine
+ Good 720p/120 deg builtin camera-DVR
+ Compatible with BaseFlight, CleanFlight, BetaFlight
– Not all element can fit between lower & upper plate (need to increase standoff size)
– Motor’s wire need to be protected
– M2x4mm motor’s screws (prefer some M2x5mm)
