Codename : Perfect Blue
Pilot’s name: Brian Betts
Frame Type:QQ 190 4mm Tank
Important Build Notes:
– Cut the bullet connectors off of the motors and Powercube if you’re replicating this build. The lack of flexibility and extra bulk of the motor leads doesn’t make for a clean outcome with a small pure ‘x’ frame like the QQ 190. I initially attempted to use some heatshrink to contain the mess of extra wires, but the vein-like final appearance wasn’t acceptible.
– Keeping the mess of wires between the Powercube to the motors allows you to get creative with protection. This build features nylon braided sleeves that protect wires from getting sliced by bent/shattered propeller blades.
– If you opt for the TBS Powercube, please use 1.5″ stand-offs for the gap between the baseplate and upper deck. The stock stand-offs don’t leave any breathing room for wires.
– Adding some type of adhesive-backed grip tape or rubber on the bottom of the x-frame really helps when it comes to securing batteries.
Stock TBS PIDs for the Powercube work OK with the QQ 190. I would reduce P+D settings independently until you feel like the cornering characteristics are acceptable. I personally believe some yaw expo is really helpful as well.
Why this quad is AWESOME!
I absolutely love the balance of the QQ 190 in the air. The construction of this frame is ludicrously easy. Combined with the various 3d printed parts available, this frame really lends itself to a variety of missions.
What would you change or improve about this quad?
I think a beefier battery (1500Kv) or larger, race-spec motors would make this build a better freestyle FPV platform.
