Inspired by Robertos "open top" frame I have modified my CTX4 frame design to get open top and top mounted LiPo CTX4 V2
Some Pictures created using SketchUp
The frame uses 16mm carbon tubes and tube clamps from flyduino.net
Have moved the LiPo plate to show the open top.
In this frame I plan to use a GoPro or other small camera in the front as FPV cam.
If I want to use it for film/photo, I mount a landing gear that have a brushless gimbal and VR Gimbal Controller.
Here is my CTX4 V1 that was used in my loiter test video
I plan to use:
VR Brain 4.5 (+ external IMU when it is supported)
APM 2.5 Power module to get 5V and measure LiPo voltage and ampere usage
UBLOX Lea 6 GPS
3DR 433Mhz telemetry radio modules
30A SimonK ESC
FPV camera and 5,8Ghz TX
Brushless gimbal (GoPro)
VR Gimbal Controller
2 way video switch, so I can switch between FPV and GoPro using a radioswitch.
If any interest, I plan to create a build log where I describe things step by step in a way so new user may find some help + make a forum thread where you can ask questions or give me hints about what I should do another way (I´m not a pro)
