Hovership ZUUL : SUPERBEAST EDITION

100_7018
30 August Update:  After 206 flights, it was time to do an overall maintenance on the ZUUL!  One of the Cobras failled and 2 Afro ESCs got destroyed in a crash resulting from the Cobra motor quitting on me!  On top of that, the base clean plate broke…  All that to say it was time!  When I crashed, I was in a bad, thick wooded area…  Thanks to the Marco Polo, within minutes, the ZUUL was located.

New equipment:

100_7015

Pros:

  • Easy build, everything fit perfect
  • Good protection for the GoPro
  • Jello Free video

Cons:

  • The rubber dampers can rip off on a crash.  Fixed with Socket head Washers Anodised Aluminum M3 I added 1 in front in the existing location and added 2 in the back.  I also reinforced the clean plate with a piece of carbon to compensate for the material removed.
