What is DJI F550 Hexa-Copter Frame ?
DJI has another drone product, the DJI F550 Hexa-Copter Frame, also known as the DJI Flame Wheel F550, which is different from the other DJI-made drones. For the reason that unlike the previous DJI products, which are all ready-to-fly drones, the DJI F550 Hexa-Copter Frame will arrive at your doorstep bare but with complete basic parts. This way, you will be able to build your very own customized Hexa-Copter.
DJI Flame Wheel F550 has three models: the F330, F450, and the F550. But among the three, only the DJI F550 can be categorized as a Hexa-Copter, while the F330 and F450 are both quadcopters. All three versions have the same parts but differ in design. DJI F550 hexacopter has a distinct design that allows it to have a more stable flight, ideal for aerial photography, videography, or simply for recreational flying.
The copter’s attractive frame arms are made of PA66+30GF, a sturdy material that can resist falls. The frame panel uses a tough PCB material for extra strength support.
Combined PCB Wiring
Also included is a durable PCB frame board for an easier and safer wiring of battery and ESCs.
Ample Assembly Room
The frame’s design aims to provide sufficient space for the construction of autopilot system.
Attractive Frame Arms
DJI also provides colored frame arms for a colorful flight. You can choose from red, black, and white arms for your customized copter.
Before you start assembling, you will need the following: a soldering iron, solder, and a flux. Fortunately, the PCB board is well-marked, the instructions are clear. You will have no trouble placing the connections. Do not forget to test each joint before you proceed to the next process. Make sure that every joint is solidly connected, or else, you’ll face some issues later on.
After the Assembling of DJI F550 Hexa-Copter Frame:
After everything is put together, don’t immediately go running outside to test your creation. Calibrate the digital compass first to avoid flying problems later.
Aside from the GPS and controller, you may also add Bluetooth and a gimbal. The latter allows you to mount a camera (most gimbals are compatible with GoPro camera) so you can take aerial shots while in flight. If you need instructions on how to install other extra elements but can’t find it in the manual included in the package, don’t worry, everything is downloadable on the DJI’s Web site.
