This is the cl1 xrx8. What does x8 mean? X8 means there is an x configuration on the drone and there are eight propellers that’s crazy. Like just nothing looks like a beast like i wanted to see that thing go super fast and low to the ground, so a lot of people are actually doing heavy, lift drones now there’s a lot of people that are in the cinematography world and some of our Fellow pilots are out there filming drone shots for movies, so i actually had another project i’m working on that’s coming up here soon, where i was trying to do something right, i’m going to be lifting a little bit of weight. So i wanted to kind of make something with a frame that we already sell, that can lift some heavy stuff. What do you mean heavy stuff like a red komodo camera like black magic pocket or just heavy stuff in general? bien, C'est, what other people are doing? I got a secret project i’m, not going to talk about it. I thought it would be pretty cool to try this out and see what it can do for a freestyle. How much bigger is it than like when a normal quad, donc c’est oui. This is what the x8 looks like compared to your standard la drip frame. Are you guys going to sell this in the store um? So we technically already do sell this in the store um. This is actually just a cl1 xr frame and drew, and i kind of worked together to come up with this really cool mount that’s, going to allow pretty much any frame to be converted into an x8 little tiny, tpu 3d print.
That allows you to mount a motor to the bottom of the standard arm, C'est cool, so any any drone i want to make have eight motors on it. I can just pretty much. There are some limitations if there’s something mounted below it. Par exemple, bien que, it’s not gon na allow the prop, then it wouldn’t work, but most of our drone frames. This should allow anybody convert it to an x8 frame we’re also going to upload it to thingiverse. So you guys can download the prints and print them for free. If you guys already have your own 3d printer, how does it work with the flight controller, so some flight controllers only have six motor outputs. How does this one work? I’M using the hdrc zeus, dji f7 board, and it has the ability to run eight motors in an octo configuration okay and it’s actually set up in betaflight as an x8. But not all flight controllers will work with this setup right. Not all flight controllers are going to work with this you’re going to have to have the ability to actually have eight servo outputs or eight motor outputs. Sur le plan technique, the x8 system wires up in a very similar way to a standard flight controller. But you have to have four additional output pads for the additional four motors, because we’re running eight motors instead of four we’re, using the normal plug for the typical motors on the top. And then the motors on the bottom of the quad are actually wired to these.
Four pads here, so this quad actually has the sharkbite hd system installed in it, because we got these new sharkbite systems. We really want to play with them and figure out all the ups and downs between sharkbite and dji and i’ve been playing with the sharkbite system. A little bit and it’s definitely different. I want to fly it. I want to fly that thing. You know how it works. Yeah i build it. You guys break it. Oh mon Dieu. No keep in mind there’s no landing gear on this bubby. Oh, alors, how do i land it carefully? Sean is so concerned about the fact that the motors are uncovered like i get it it’s not ideal. I think he’s gon na be fine, il est, so concerned he’s, like oh we’re, gon na damage the moment when we land on we’re gon na damage them i’m like when’s. The last time you have ever landed, you don’t land, your quads. Non, Je ne. You crash your quads all the time all the time and the motors are fine, Je suis. Not doing anything that looks so funny. It’S doing its own thing looks like a human because you have like the legs and the arms and the head – Oh mon dieu, that’s hilarious, ses, just skating around the ground like with the air, just expect to see that in the goggles, because it’s going to act, A little weird before you take off just kind of flip, it you’ll be good.
Oh, this is weird whoa Music. Oh my gosh Music. I kinda wan na see full throttle. Let’S see wow it doesn’t, oh low voltage right away. d'accord, oh i didn’t even see the battery okay, it says low voltage on the screen. d'accord, i see the voltage. Is it the same speed as a five inch quad or is it i haven’t metered it you haven’t, metered it okay. This is the first time it’s been flown fpv, except for me kind of hovering. It really that’s cool yeah, see it said land now yeah. I should land now yeah. I like it honestly like it just i don’t know. Let me try to actually like really try to freestyle like i know what a normal fighting squad whoa power line. Whoa your rates are a lot faster than mine, but that’s just me so Music i’m, almost gon na forget that it’s a like a bigger quad, because it i mean it feels like a five inch kind of right now to me i don’t know it sounds good Fast rates faster, hds, La musique, mec – that thing is so fast is it faster drew than uh? I mean the line of sight. It looks pretty serious. You were flying for quite a bit. I wasn’t expecting to laugh. I thought the battery gets stuck right. The hell out of me it’s, comme si c’était, comme 14., should i land you’re at 14, volts yeah, Oui, like hover on the grass what’s.
The arm switch okay, lovely finger. Oh that was so sick. You actually landed it. I landed it without breaking it. I mean it was like scary, Je ne, Je ne sais pas. I think it would feel more like a bigger quad. If i was in a tighter area with like the location had like tighter gaps and stuff, i don’t know i mean there’s some tight gaps in there. Maybe like like, i want to see it whip around like in these tight guys. Like i mean after everyone else said, i want to bring a fresh battery yeah that’s pretty funny. Should we all get a chance out before we really send it it did it. Did you you haven’t even flown it, encore? Non, i haven’t flown it yet when i was noticing that it was twitchy for for you, because typically you’re, a very flowy smooth pilot and it did seem like it – was a little twitchy, peut-être que c’est, just getting used to my rate, something yeah. c'était. I think we should be able to change the rates in the osd menu. I haven’t actually tried yet, but my rates are like super still learning they’re like super low. I probably flew for four minutes or so yeah i mean i wasn’t. Vraiment. I wasn’t really going like room. I don’t know i don’t understand how it could flash. I really thought well, i guess hold on so if you think about our five inch drones with 4s batteries, we’re getting about three minutes of flight, keep in mind with the seven inch drone, we were getting like five or six minutes of flight, so now we’ve doubled.
The motor and maybe that just brought it right back down to the flight time that you get out of a five inch drone. I don’t even think about it that way: Oui, because these are bigger motors and they’re more efficient right so because yeah, when we don’t when it’s, not the x8 configuration when it’s just the seven inch but it’s just the standard, xr we’re flying for like five six. Seven eight minutes, so i guess that’s funny you’re, taking it doubling the motors you’re, bringing the flight time back down, but the increase in power. I don’t know i haven’t flown it yet, but just visually. I was like all right here. We go it’s! So weird you just have to like flip it to get it off the ground, so you don’t mess the props up. Oui, oui. It sounds so quiet when you’re hovering. It does sound, really quiet, Oh oui. No it it feels fine to me, J'aime ça. Doesn’T feel shaky or anything. I think it was just you getting used to my rates that’s all. What are your rates to stock rates? Ouais, just stock rates Music? I got a little bobble there, but i haven’t tuned this at all. This is stock tuned stock rates. So i’m sure, with a little bit of tuning from our master tuner tyler, this thing would fly a lot better. Oh wow! I gave it a little bit of power there and it. It definitely has more power than my regular.
Five inch pulls out of a dive with no issue, doesn’t feel awkward or anything watch out for those trees. Ouais, Oh, oh je suis. Toujours, hey it’s still alive. I got extra props to chop the trees up: d'accord, yeah i’m, already down to like 14 2. So i mean you’re back up to 14 4 at hover. Oh still feels like i got power, it doesn’t feel like it’s, sagging or anything yeah. Even with that big punch out over the trees that sound it sounds so cool. Like i don’t know, it sounds so cool i’m gon na bring it in now because i’m under 14. 13.5. Oh all right here we go, nous avons obtenu 13 volts dude, Pas mal. Was it feeling weak at the end? Non, it didn’t feel weak at all. It felt fine yeah, i guess you’re still just kind of getting that seven inch advantage because, like that’s, the other thing is like those seven inches. We fly that voltage way lower, mais c’est, not really that bad for the batteries it’s. When the battery is already at a low voltage and you’re still sucking current out of it that’s when you really damage your batteries on the seven inch thing well, what is the current? This thing is not exactly what i expected. I can’t believe how how powerful i think it’s just boogies yeah. When i pulled out of the split s’s it was like, i had no hold back. I just put no effort into it.
It came right out of this lettuce. No problem was it my turn. Yeah yeah man, i’m psyched. I can’t believe we haven’t broken a prop yet like i expected us to have it totally busted. By now i mean well, actually i think, isn’t one of the things about x8 hold on you’re all excited. We didn’t break a prop, but i think what are you trying to do? We’Re gon na go take the top off. Oh, what is he gon na? Faire? Oh punaise, he’s gon na try to fly it with seven props they’re, always oh, Mon dieu, it’s actually flying that’s, freaking, impressionnant, C'est, so exciting. Oh, mon Dieu, okay it’s! ne pas! I can tell like look it’s it’s dipping. The corner is definitely dipping and oh, oh it won’t come down. Well like one of the major sorry it’s, not happy it’s, pas heureux, but you could fly at home. You could fly at home, but it’s not happy like the corner was dipping and air mode with the eye term spiking it was like. I was full throttle. I had to like nose down to come down because it wouldn’t just come down flat, and i bet you that motor is hot, but i mean that we’ve always used x8 because it was back up right. I mean not that bad. It gives you like a fail. Safe right, almost probably buzzing full speed with no prop which wasn’t good but but it’s crazy to see that it actually works.
You actually have a little bit of fail safe in there. I wonder it’s, really cool don’t, do any more! Pourquoi pas? We need to break it before we get to fly it. You already tried it. Why do you have to try more just fly it? Aucun. How far can we go whoa? It flies whoa, C'est, Fou, nous allons, take off some more no. Pourquoi tu fais ça? Oh, oh god! Oh non! Oh non! Il! He goes breaking my heart, d'accord, breaking my stuff. That was not that was zero throttle that was zero, throttle zero throttle as soon as i armed it. d'accord. So if you lose one prop you’re, d'accord, d'accord, if you lose two props you’re, d'accord, d'accord, you lose three props going away back to china. Do you think it was just because the certain probably took off – or i think if i turned off air mode, it might be okay, but i don’t want to mess with it, because i just all i did was arm it. I didn’t move any sick. Tous les. I did was arm it and it just went and you see it was rotating. It just started going that’s crazy. I think this could use some tuning yeah it’s stocked, so it still has a very bobble, very bobbly there’s, some twitches and stuff yeah, so there’s some there’s some tuning issues, but it’s just kind of a proof of concept. This is very fascinating. I think probably our seven inch tune would be fine, or at least better, because this is just stock rate of flight right right yeah.
I mean i’m impressed that just stock beta flight flies as good as it does power lines. Oh mon Dieu! tant pis, you just actually got it stuck in a tree. Is it disarmed? Damn yeah? bien, Au moins, if you do get stuck in a tree, you can’t find it there. You have eight motors beeping. Now a lot deeper, that’s worth it alone, just have to be yeah Applause, La musique. I know these are stock rates, but i think it’s amplified because of the oh, something like that does not feel like a stock rate, because i fly a little faster than stock rate, and this feels faster than my rates it’s hard to drop. And we need to the idle speed is stock. The idle is really high. Look at the shadow. Oh, mon Dieu. I saw the shadow of the quad. That was cool Music. Oh, mon Dieu, you did it. Should i maddie flip it? Pourquoi pas? I can always build another one right. Oh, Oh, Eh bien, you almost made it just turtleman mode. What is it which one is turtlemouse i don’t. Même. I think i need that one. I didn’t put turtle mode on it. bien, it said turtle mode. Oh, mon Dieu, that was cool no problem. The props are still good. You took off in the grass too yeah they’re fine, who needs landing gear. Right is landing here when you have power – Oh mon dieu, that’s so fast. I feel like van over yeah yeah.
Is this how vanderbilt feels when he flies five inch? Ouais? Oh so fast? Oui, Je suis, the immortal! Oh mon Dieu. I feel like the first when i first started flying quads and i didn’t know how to do real tricks yet – and i was just like yes, Oui, Je suis, so fast and you’re at 12. 4.. Why that’s ridiculous? But the motors aren’t aren’t warm oh yeah, ses, totally cool that’s totally the battery, D'un autre côté, Oui. I owe you a battery, so we’re gon na copy the tune only from this drone to that drone, because this drone is tuned well with our master tuner tyler from rotor riot store. I just want to pull the pieces off of this tune that i need for that drone. I can’t copy everything, because that has eight motors. This has four motors and if i copy everything it’ll scroll, my motor assignments up and everything else so we’re, just gon na grab the things that i need from this tune, copy it in a notepad and then transfer those items into that tune. I really just want to see if the xr tune will work on this, even though it’s the x8, like even those eight motors like i don’t, know how well the tune that we made around a quadcopter will translate to an octocopter motor mix. Oh oui, C'est, mieux. Oh oui, oh my god that works boom. Regarde ça! Oh oui, ses, smooth yeah! That is smoothie groovy that works better than i expected.
I guess i just fly really bad flying quads! Non, i think you know you fly mostly stock tune and that the stock tune works really really well for five inch, quads yeah the it’s, just when you start doing something like going to seven inch. Oh, this fly is so good. À présent, when we first flew the seven inch it flew like garbage, Oui, oui, this flies. Oui, the rates are slow. I think these are bubbies rates right yeah. The rates are a little slower than i like inverted yao spin boom. What that was fully on dude? That was what your rates are ridiculous. Look at this pull you off go, go it’s, si lisse! This thing is awesome. À présent, Oh, it was fun before, but now it’s funner, Oh mon dieu! Now i really like it. I think we should get some chase footage of it. What do you think i’ve been wanting to get chase footage of it? Music Music do Music Music, but it was a soft crash. I was probably facing the wrong direction, but just snow out yeah completely snow. I i actually think you probably ran the battery too, though definitely did because i’m landing about 9.7 volts. I was having too much fun that’s crazy that you didn’t even feel it getting lower. Non, i didn’t feel it at all. Yeah shark bite cuts out at 10. Volts, oh d’accord, but start as dji yeah, i mean dji, nine volts there’s no way yeah.
At least i got to crush my own quad this time. c'est, Parfait, Parfait! It was a really soft fall, so it like came down through these trees and like bounced around a little bit on the floor, this tpu mount’s a little bit cockeyed, but i mean it’s, fine yeah. These arms are so thick, eight eight millimeter arms. These are eight millimeter arms, that’s unbreakable. Your nine volt battery is still plugged in bounced back up to like 13.6 ses, d'accord, the unbreakable x8 xr x8, merci de regarder les gars, i’m let’s, flare, c i’m, bubby, fpv and we’ll see you guys next time on road riot. Get the belt Applause Music. I think this might be faster yeah. This is what people really want to see. Yeah this one is a spoiler, so this is what what why why they’re alert? I started the bartenders of you and barbara’s video. J’étais comme. J’ai besoin de ça, i think it makes it go like at least one thousand dollars an hour.
