Frequently asked questions

Is the QuadH2o™ waterproof?

The body of the QuadH2O is a sealed unit so is watertight. The only exposed components are the motors.

Brushless motors can run underwater, however we recommend after exposure to salt water since them with fresh 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 capacity, FPV equipment, 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 (Hard mounted GoPro, FPV @ approx. 1.6KG).

The 4s 4000mAh NanoTech fits in nicely and will give you around 9-10mins with the above setup (flying when fully loaded with a hard mounted GoPro).

For longer flight times try the ReadyMade RC. 4s 5100mah Lipo or the Desire Power 5200mAh, which should give you anything from 10-14mins.

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?

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 Air Gear 360 and also the 2216 900kv motors, both tested with 9.5 and 10″ props.

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

Im buying a RTF kit, do I need to get anything else?

Yes, due to shipping regulations we do not supply flight batteries as standard (we can but there is a shipping fee supplement).

Therefore it may be more cost effective to source your own flight batteries. Your RTF QuadH2O will come with a XT60 connector.

Can I get it in any color?

The QuadH2o is available in yellow only.
