TEST: SPCMaker 90NC

null

THE SPCMaker 90NC IS UNFLYABLE OUT OF THE BOX DUE TO BAD GYROS!!!! AVOID THIS MACHINE

INTRODUCTION

The SPCMaker 95GL received few weeks ago my award due to its great performances in all sectors: powerfull machine, durable, great CCD camera, OSD, etc… With the new SPCMaker 90NC, some upgrades have been introduced. Now we have a F4 + OSD Omnibus board and super strong 28A ESC BLheli_S/Dshot 600. Other ingredients remain the same, i.e. a great Runcam microswift CCD camera, strong carbon frame and 4S compatible 1104 brushless motors. We can in theory expect another super great machine. Let’s discover it.

UNBOXING, ANALYSIS

To make very short, unfortunatly this machine is unflyable out of the box !!!!!! freaks out as soon as the machine is armed !!!!. Motors becomes super hot in a fraction of seconds.It’s linked with the new gyro chip ICM 20608. The new gyros if they are not softmounted (massively) becomes crazy as soon as small vibrations are transmitted by motors. For more explanations, please check this Alber Kim’s video:

The only way to make this machine “usable” is to softmount almost every parts: motors, FC board, ESC board, aluminium standoff…. as depicted in this photo:

CONCLUSIONS

What a disapointement from SPCMaker……. From light (95GL) to dark (90NG, 110NG)…. Simply avoid this machine except if you are sure to do correctly the softmounting.

+ Deluxe bundle
+ Great CCD FPV camera
+ Strong 3K carbon 3mm frame

    Hé, Hé, plusieurs SPCMaker ont des problèmes donc éviter, par exemple le 95GF lui vendu par Gearbest aussi, et les premiers de Banggood juste mettre des protection moteurs qui évitent aussi ce problème. 🙂
