time again to write a little about a new project of mine. Lately I have bought a Black Snapper L Pro frame from Globe Flight.
(Bought it several weeks ago; Now they have an updated version with "service flaps" for easier access of in-frame-mounted electronics. But when you have the dampened battery plate, these won't be accessible anyway. As far as I can tell from the pictures)
The target is to get an up-to-date long flight (+20 minutes) multirotor plattform for light aerial tasks (carry GoPro, Sensors or other payload with several hundred grams of weight).
As always there was the question of components.
Naturally you need the frame. I bought:
- the basic main part
- dampened battery plate
- red glass fiber base plate
- GPS mast
And that is it.
I haven't ordered a landing gear as my Fabikator Mini 3D printer is sufficient in build space to print some. But this will follow in another posting.

I have added a strip of double sided sticky silicone tape between with sensor and the red base plate. Also I strapped the sensor down with a zip tie. You can see a small part of the zip tie in the second picture.

But this will be part of another post soon.
