CarbonCore Build Thread
Wired up the PixHawk Cube Cortex. Just got the signal plugs then all standard ArduPilot software/firmware calibrations and setup. The A2 Cortex is open for inspection and now has a little gimbal with 10X optical zoom wired in.

Fitting motors and ESCs. These are Tiger Motors 3510’s with Tiger AIR 30 ESCs.
I’m ‘hardwiring’ these arms without plugs and sockets, so the cables go straight into the drone.
The transparent heat shrink provided for the ESCs was on the short side. I’m not intending to re-program these – I will see what they do on the factory settings.

Removed the top motor mounts, cut the supplied motor cables short, also removed all the ESC wires and fitted new, over-length ones to join into the main wiring loom inside the chassis.

PixHawk Cube mounted directly with the four supplied bolts.
Fixed Leg Brackets fitted with a 6th hole drilled for each.
Grommets super glued in and coloured taped added to the arms and legs.

Starting a new Cortex build, then flight testing before being made available for sale.
Ready to Fly CarbonCore’s are on the website
http://shop.carboncore.co.uk/Shop/Ready-to-Fly

And there’s a lot more photos on the facebook page

On the bench is a Cortex with an A2 flight controller, flown and tuned and awaiting a gimbal.
The Cortex with short legs and a white plastic shell (with a second GPS antenna fitted) has a 2-ax gimbal and a Sony A6000 for mapping.
This current build is going to be with the PixHawk Cube, Tiger 3510 motors, aiming to fly with a single 6A 10Ah battery and a lightweight gimbal and camera to have a good power to weight ratio.

Both Cortex Builds at the AIrfield today. The System with the white shell is under 7.0Kg with a Sony A6000. The Cortex with the single blue battery has been built as a light weight system, with efficiency motors and currently about 2.5Kgs with DJi A2.
