ImpulseRC 5'' alien build


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So I placed an order today for the impulse RC 5'' alien frame, components are as follows:

Kiss 24A ESC's
Kiss FC
X4R SB receiver
immersion rc VTX
Luminier 2205/2350kv motors
HS1177 cam

I will be setting it up to house my GoPro Hero 3 and running my usual luminier 4s 1300MAH 60c lipos.

I orignally intended on running the TBS PNP50 OSD but will just run telemetry with a warning on my reciver for low voltage and a second one for critical voltage. Parts should be here in a week so i will start and try to update as I go.

Wasnt sure if there were build threads so if I am in the wrong forum let me know.

5" frame? That sounds small.

Re: ImpulseRC 5'' alien build

Re: ImpulseRC 5'' alien build

Wasnt able to update my build as I was away at work, all parts arrived, spent about 4 hours completing the build.

Had an issue with the kiss fc when I went to update the firmware, the bootloader button stayed in bootloader mode so I needed to get another one sent. The supplier provided me with one free of charge.

Ran default pids on maiden and have done minor changes with tuning so far. This quad makes my vortex 250 feel like a tank. I haven't flown it since I got his alien in the air. I'm thinking of selling and building a backup. Very powerful with the 2350kv in it.

Very happy with it!! will post picks when I get home.
