... just as a side note: I will use a modified version of the Mav2Telem board + adapter PCB for mounting the M4. This gives a small 'all-in-one' solution.

new version of the matching M4 adapter PCB (unassembled; received them today)

O.K. wanna see more pictures what's next?

Tarot 4006 motor mount - needed to be larger than standard mounts. PCB mounting screws were replaced with plastic ones to save weight.

comparison between standard and custom motor mount (fits larger motors and has more mounting hole options than standard motor mount); LED PCB fits both versions

Hi Jörg,

great stuff.
Do you have the weight of the arms of the CamCruiser as well?
Will be needed for Quatos;-)
Best regards,

Not now, but the frame (all CFK; the one I'm currently flying is the 'first series' CamCruiser (if it had a number ist would be 001 ;) ) which is made of GFK) is in the basement --> will weight all components and have such pics in the new build log.

OK.
What props are those on the picture? I read somethign like 30x15 but that does not make anysense to me.
As far as I can see 16" props would be the maximum on the frame, with larger props the body and the lipo would be already in the rotor disc.

This are Graupner e-Props 12x6. You can see it on the left blade (when enlarging the picture).
This combo should give the same performance as the MN3510-15 for less than half the cost. This motor gives you the option to use the T-Motor CFK props too and save weight (measurement data with T-Motor 12x4 are here). Don't have the CF props here so I can only post picture of the e-Props --> would be great if you could weight one and post here ;) .

Tarot 4006 save 17g compared to MN3510-15

SANY0232.JPG
Either use the Tarot prop adapter or the T-Motor - whichever is lighter

SANY0233.JPG
Adapter for standard props - use T-Motor PA017 (CW) and PA024 (CCW)

SANY0235.JPG
e-Prop 12x6 - T-Motor CFK should save some more weight

SANY0236.JPG
motor + prop - compare with the picture showing the complete mount (bullet connectors on the motor leads)


The maximum prop size for the CamCruiser is 15in but you will have to replace the front arm with longer ones (i.e. same as rear tubes). Should be possible with QUATOS, but you will have to use different motors to spin 15in props.

Hi Jörg,

Hi Jörg,

the T-Motor 12x4" props weight 13g.
I will post a picture tomorrow morning.

The tarot prop combination you posted weights more than my combination MN3510-15 with T-Motor 12x4 which I just weighted at 132g with the motor mount of the CamCruiser, including an LED stripe of 3 LEDs, like your PCB.

So more or less the same weight ;-)
