Bigggg Flying Drone from a Small Mini Drone

September 24, 2019

can we make a small drone into a bigger
drone let’s find out so , making a big drone can
be easy if you have all the parts but you know what parts of the small drone and
body of a bigger drone combines into a bigger drone is it really possible ! so to
test this theory i have ordered the cheerson CX-10 which is a really great drone by
the way as unboxtherapy showed and a body of Syma X5SW which is kind of a good but it has a
coreless motors in it and it is a bigger form factor drone so there are good
chances that we can modify the small drone into a bigger drone so , First I started
taking apart the small drone and it is a really good drone by the way the build
quality was really good ! there is a microcontroller the motion
sensing unit mpu 6050 really popular one and a RF chip for transmitter small battery was just 100 mAh to give four
minute of flight the small motors are really powerful for this small
size so well I thought since we’re upgrading the motors of a bigger drone body we might need a bigger mosfet to control this motor’s so first i thought i should
use irf z44n which is overkill mosfet but you know what after
searching into the data sheet of the mosfet the drone origionally has i found
that the CX-10 has a mosfet which can handle 6 amps and the motors of the
Syma X5SW only consumes 4 amps at full power so there is no need to change
mosfet’s in there so firstly I removed all of the parts from the CX-10
then connected 4 bigger motors to the CX -10 circuit board and , no there is no sign of over heatingof mosfets then I just assembled a bigger drone in a proper way and there we have it ! our
drone is ready !!! so without wasting any time let’s just fly it ! Ok friends so it’s
pretty sunny day right here and i’m going to fly this modded drone so
let’s just do that Oh ! crash ohh ! crash you know what the first test flight was kind of a success but you know what this drone was just wobbling and it is
not stable in the 2nd flight i have tried to solve the issue but here we go ! so the drone was making quite a lot of
noise so the propeller’s are not connected properly you , so this is
test flight i have fixed the distance between propolis so let’s fly again in the next flight I have upgraded a
small part into the propeller section which really reduced the sound which the
drone was creating as the drone propellers are shaking very violently this is the
design flaw of Syma X5SW so what I did is I took this small straw
and sticked it into this part so now if i place my rotor the rotor will not move
in horizontal direction it just spins freely ! it’s sounding like a drone now ! have tried many
things to try to improve the performance of this drone but what i got upto
is this flight in this case our smaller drone has a sensor which are
calibrated for the small size of the drone but if we try to install this circuit
board into a bigger drone, so this motion sensor values may just not work out of the box so we
may have to tweak this values but this is really not possible to upgrade into
the firmware of this drone if you know anything about it please let me know in
the comments down below so anyways hope you enjoyed this video guys if you

  1. i am professional in changing ime values in electronics especially 🚁 but i even i know how to modify stock calibrated values in drones and rc airplanes

  2. the flight controller is designed for a smal area with the motors very close to each other so it isn't very reactive, now with the motors apart it's way more reactive and the flight controller is over compensating to the sudden change of position,
    love your video's keep it up! 🙂

  3. try to place the main controller board in exactly the middle of the quad, so the in-built gyroscope works correctly

  4. nice one buddy. i think the problem is that the gyro inside the body isn't stable, if you can do that, it'll be much smoother

  5. did you mount the pcb completely flat to the body? if not and it has an internal gyroscope it may just be shaking the pcb around and causing instabilities.

  6. in Google there is a class based on" PID " stand for Propotional Integral Derivative, this class is for stabilizing the drone which helps you a lot in this project

  7. ID is basically a specific function inside your flight controller that is responsible for stabilizing your drone. In order to tune a quadcopter, you have to give the PID function some useful parameters to go off of so it knows how it should behave. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what PID stands for, because most flight controllers and tutorials refer to the settings by using the acronyms anyway. I’m not going over the actual meanings behind the words because that would be too hard to understand for a lot of people, so just remember that PID stands for “proportional, integral and derivative”

  8. did you rigidly secure the board inside with something like hot glue or silicone and make sure it's level with the propellers. If the board is not rigid with the body there will be lag motion so the sensor will overcompensate because only the wires are transferring the motion to the board

  9. It looks like the solution is tweaking into the firmware CX-10 Drone Flight Controller Custom Firmware

  10. 1) Hot glue the circuit board in the middle of the chase (so that it doesn't wabble around inside)

    2) There's supposed to be calibrate options for these quad copters, try searching for videos on YouTube…

  11. I think the problem is that maybe you didn't secure the board perfectly centered and leveled, because the problem is only on 1 axis

  12. I have a syma x5c and I want to upgrade it to max performance! Can I just put better motors on it and replace the "3.7v" I'm pretty sure with a 7.4 v??? Will it be more powerful and is it worth it??? When I say is it worth it I mean will I see a big difference in performance

  13. maybe you didnt secure the alignment of the board it has a flight control systems which atomaticaly level each motor to compensate with the twerking of the drones body or maybe a bit dis alignment of the accelery sensor so i tell wrong power output to a wrong motor i think?? hehe

  14. from where did you bought it because i ordered it from and it has been taken in charge by customs mumbai…as a harmful flying machine…..what to do….its 30 days since order…

  15. The flight controller board needs to be mounted securely(hot glue etc) and Level (centered-flat ) then you need to do an gyro reset, if possible.. That should improve it… Nice video.

  16. hi I am an indian I want to know that how do you calculate that the receiver of cx10 needs a MOSFET

    i am making a drone with high speed dc motors with receiver of syma x5c I want to calculate that receiver of syma x5c can fly it or not

  17. link of motor

  18. intersting idea, but u should know using the cx10 board with bigger motors + bigger but lighter body will mess up the total body balance. now your drone is too powerful to keep its stability in the air. ironic but it's too light now. u need to keep physics into consideration as well, not just mathmatics and electric engineering. it's as if you are trying to fit GTR engine into Civic. Swapping engines isn't the only thing you need to work on. trying adding extra weight on the modded drone, that should improve stability.

  19. hey there im a indian if you try to stabilise the cx10 dones receiver than you can make your drone stable

  20. Pls glue circuit board in 000 xyz position so it does not change position an it can be calibrated by remote

  21. Im going to try to do the opposite of what you did! Im attempting to use a Syma X5C, Striker Spy Drone or equivalent (since I have several bigger quadcopter flight controller boards not in use) in a Nano QX mini quadcopter upgrading the battery and 6mm motors to 7mm or higher. Or, should I just substitute mosfets from one of the larger FC boards and replace the the Nano QX one's?? Any opinions are much appreciated!
