DJI @ Volcano

Great expereince for sure!

During a second flight, he attempted to get even closer to the eruption, but it was out of range. When the drone would go out of range, its failsafe would trigger, bringing it back to the launch point. Cheng needed to be closer to get the shot he wanted. According to Cheng, “One of the policemen came over to us and said, ‘We checked the rules, and vehicles can’t drive closer. However, you could theoretically walk closer. I have to inform you that we officially do not recommend this, because it’s dangerous.’”

F330 with bigger frame

Was looking at loading more things on the DJI F330 when we were rebuilding the F330 for the 3rd time recently and came across this thread by Theone420. We contacted our local, Singapore workshop and yes, they can do it.

and so, here’s “The Flying Flea”.

We chose to make it in 0.5mm thick ply wood and for fun, an acrylic one.


Weighing it, 74.2grams


As stated in that thread, the DXF comes with 0.9mm screw holes and comes as a guide. You can choose what size you need. We went with the original 2.5mm but the original screws of M2.5 x 6 won’t be long enough. We went with M2.5 x 8.


Draft assembly with the F330 arms.


Weighing it again. 172.8grams with arms.


Size compare with the DJI F330.

With lotsa space to mount the ESC within the frame.
