Build: Night Hawk 250 Pro


The Best Hobby Mall’s Night Hawk 250 was our first venture into 250mm class quads. It had a nice introduction price of $39.99 USD with free shipping and it’s really non nonsense free shipping. We got it shipped to Singapore.

Rebuild 2 – 9 Dec 2014

Rebuild it and flown it with a Hobbyking Naze 32 (This is the soldered horizontal pins version. There is a vertical pin version and a no pins version). Great fun as well. Picked up a pack of spare accessories that consists of all the bolt, nuts and blue rubber thingy as well.

The ESCs didn’t like being cramped together and we learn the hard way. It just never flew properly. After one ESC discarded and all moved to the arms later, we were flying again.

Rebuild 1 – 15 Sept 2014

It never flew properly on a KK2.1.5, gave up and anxious to fly it, swop to a DJI Naza M Lite with GPS. yes, a little crazy with the GPS and all but it flew great!

The Nighthawk 250 has another change and it’s to Naze32 this time. We picked up the Naze32 from Hobbyking. Bluetooth What you must buy, repeat MUST, when you get the Naze32 is the Bluetooth module and while at it, pick up a buzzer too, we reuse the one from our KK2 board. Once flying stable on default PID, all you need to do is change the rate for roll, pitch and yaw. Here’s ours, change from 0 to 0.50 then finally to 0.8 and you’ll be flipping with great fun without loose altitude. Screenshot_2015-04-14-21-46-25 Android Apps

The above is EZ Gui Ground Station. Pay for it, trust us. It’s great. The first one we tried was the Naze32/ MultiWII Configurator but it can’t read (as of 15 Apr) AUX 2 that we setup for Autotune.


RCX GF223 Build

This is one fun build by The Mrs. She took her time and meticuliously tidied up the cables. The difference between men building a quad in the team and women building it.

Men in the team are untidy and get it to fly first then worry about the looks of it. Women seems want to build it tidy from the get-go hahah
