GEPRC LX 6 – the big Leopard

This build started as a midrange plan but somehow got to a fast nearly mid range poser quad. Had to choose that nice GEPRC Leopard frame because i like the look of it a lot.
Motors might be a too high KV for efficient 6 inch – but can punch you to the clouds in a few seconds :smile:

 

 

Had some troubles with silicone pads for the motors – it turned out that motors got hot because of some strange tension problem when the silcone pads where mounted – after some unsuccessful PID tuning i removed the silicone pads and motors didn’t get hot anymore – strange enough. those pads where a bit thicker – about 2mm – than the other ones i’m using without having any problems at all. Motor1 seems to have been damaged a bit as on a punch out it does tilt over a little.

 

Update:

seems like ESC got damaged by over temperature. Got a new 40A ESC and changed the motors to weaker and lower KV 2250KV DYS motors.

here is some footage from a test flight:
