Frequently asked questions

Does the QuadH2O kit come with any electrical components?

The QuadH2O kit includes the QuadH2O frame it a kit form. Once you have built the frame kit your machine will be ready for you to add your own electrical components.

Is the QuadH2O™ waterproof?

The body of the QuadH2O is a sealed, water tight unit, with exception of the breather tube (which allow the barometer within the flight controller to measure outside air pressure, and are designed to let air in/out but not water) and the motors.

The brushless motors are exposed but can run if wet (and even underwater), however we recommend you rinse them with fresh water after exposure to salt water to prolong the motors bearings.

What's It made out of?

The body is made of Epoxy fibre composite which makes it very strong and rigid. The legs from Epoxy carbon/fibre composite. The viewing dome is perspex whilst the fasteners are stainless steel.

Will it work with the DJI Naza & GPS?

Yes, in fact, we have designed the hull specifically around housing the DJI Naza & GPS and this is what we include with our RTF version (though other flight controllers can be used).

Can you recommend Gains settings for the Naza V2

These are a good starting point: Pitch:201% Roll:137% Yaw: 140% Vertical: 178% Atti Gain: 110% & 110%.

Can you give me the GPS location settings?

Presuming you fit the GPS in the specifies area, level and facing forward, they should be: X = 10cm | Y = 0 | Z = -5cm.

It's a sealed unit...Doesn't it overheat?

As long as you stick to our build guidelines you should have no overheating issues. We include heat sinks with each kit to ensure the ESCs remain at optimum temperature during flight. We have fully tested the QuadH2O™ in ambient temperatures of 38 degrees.

What flight times can I expect?

This will greatly depend on your setup, battery size, FPV, motors etc. Essentially the more components and weight you add the shorter the flight times will be.

Based on our recommended set up you can achieve approx. 10 minute flight times (GoPro, FPV @ approx. 1.6KG).

The 4s 5000mAh Zippy compact Lipo fits in nicely and will give you around 9-10mins flying time when fully loaded with a hard mounted GoPro. 7-9 minutes with the SwellPro gimbal.

For longer flight times try the ReadyMade RC. 4s 5100mah Lipo , which should give you anything from 12-14mins.

Note: When adding the Swell Pro waterproof gimbal with our recommended setup expect flight times of approximately 7-8mins.

What size battery can it take?

3 or 4s Lipo. The opening at the rear of the QuadH2o™ will allow a battery that is up to 57mm from corner to corner. And a battery height of approx. 36mm.

How big is the QuadH2O?

The dimensions motor to motor are; front 505mm, rear 405mm, front to back 330mm.

What does the QuadH2O weigh?

The complete QuadH2O frame is approx 640g.

With FPV, electrics, battery and GoPro (eg fully loaded) you are looking at approx 1.6kg.

What motors do you recommend?

There are many great motors available that will do the job, however we have had great results using the T-Motor 2216 800kv & 900kv motors, both tested with 10″ props. And the T-motor Air Gear 350 propulsion system which has 9.5" props.

Any good quality short shaft motor of between 800 – 900kv and with a 19×16 mount pitch should do the job!

Do you supply a 'ready to fly' kit?

Yes, we do offer a ‘ready to fly’ QuadH2O™. Please visit our online store for more information.

What do I need to get in the air?

Additional items you will need for the QuadH2O kit are as follows:

- Radio receiver & transmitter
- Flight controller (such as the DJI Naza)
- A suitable 3 or 4s lipo battery
- 4 x 30A speed controllers 4 x short shaft brushless motors 4 x 9×5 or 10×5 propellers

Other optional items may include:

- GPS (such as the DJI Naza GPS)
- GoPro® FPV camera
- FPV transmitter & receiver FPV goggles or monitor

*If buying our RTF kit, everything is included except your flight batteries*

Can I get it in any color?

The QuadH2O is available in yellow only.
