    The build itself was very easy and well thought out. The camera ribbon is long and must be tucked and looped under the upper cover. The programming of the flight controller isn’t really set up for a spectrum radio system. If you aren’t very familiar with betaflight you will struggle for many hours to get this ship in the air. And it seems there isn’t a low voltage cut out either. As in just a few minutes of testing, arming the motors and a couple three second spin ups to check the controls, the battery is now toast. Short of that it may be a great ship. However three days in and a toasted battery only to find out I have much more to do to even get it to hover. If using dx6 ailerons will need to be reversed. I have no idea what’s next that will have to be fixed. All end points will have to be adjusted as well. Once I get a new battery I’ll update with my progress

      Hey Trevor, let me know when you sort it out for Spektrum. I’m having trouble figuring out how to get the camera to stop recording. I mapped to a TAER setting and KISS channel map, if that helps…seems to mostly work except for the HD recording.

      I had vibrations in the quad, but I removed the camera assembly and backed off the stack screws so they weren’t so tight, and it flies relatively smooth without the camera assembly. I wonder if its better to have the stack screws tighter or looser? thoughts?

      Also, I think one of my LEDs may be missing? See pic. Do you have a blue LED on the bottom left side light up?

      Otherwise, very excited to fly this quad!

    I have the same problem with vibration. Haven’t figured it out yet. One flight today. Which was awful. Everything looked like jello through my goggles. Gonna try to loosen the board up a little and try again tomorrow. Haven’t done anything with the camera yet. Gotta figure out how to get rid of the beer goggles view first. May try just flying in acro to see if it’s the gyro causing it as well. I have blue lights on both corners.

    Yep, its somewhat frustrating. I thought I had fixed it by loosening the screws up…took two smooth flights, but by the third flight, it was twitching and vibrating again. I haven’t flown with my goggles on yet but I have a screen and can see how twitchy it looks, Its challenging when its not consistent. I wonder if this is an F4 type board or F3 type board…I’ve heard the new F4’s are technically superior, but more sensitive to vibration. In any case I’m not sure what to do when it changes from flight to flight. Like I said, PIDS tuning tomorrow maybe.

    Have you gotten recording to start and stop properly?

    Thanks for confirming two blue leds at both back corners of the FC/receiver board. I took a closer look and its just not there. I obviously haven’t even flown it outside (no crashes), so perhaps a QC issue. I put a ticket in, RCL is typically great with customer support so we’ll see what Monday brings.

    Thanks and please share if you are able to make progress!

      Well I have crashed mine every flight and I have noticed twitching almost every flight…. BUT! The twitching is when the imprimo battery is about to die or when my V2 controller is about to die…. that’s when I see the twitches

        I haven’t crashed mine at all, but flying with beer goggles on is not enjoyable. I only fly in acro so mine doesn’t twitch. But there is either so much resonance from the motors that it shakes the camera so bad it looks like jello when you makeit shake. I have 6 fpv drones and this is the only one I’ve ever had an issue with. I’ve been flying for over 15 years and thisis by far my worst experience with any kindof aircraft. Battery was no good. They said they would ship another really quickly. Customer service has been pretty good. However, I don’t believe they were ready for the issues these are having. No programming information available. I know it’s a kit, but being sold as an easy to build and fly bind and fly. The build is very easy, but nothing else is. It’s certainly not for a beginner at all. Just a little bit of a misrepresentation of the product. Now on face book they are portraying that it’s easy for even a child. Which the build itself is. Seems like a great company, but I think they totally missed the target they were shooting for with this one. Doesn’t really have enough power either. I would say the punch it has is similar to my inductrix fpv plus… which I love… video is great from it and it performs better than expected for a nonbrushless set up.

        For the price i’m really not happy at all.

          i noticed my camera was vibrating bad as well with the jello look, so i put some electrical tape around the body of it then strapped it back down and it helped to eliminate some of the shaking

    I started adjusted PIDs this morning. I backed the P and the D off the Roll and Pitch and I feel like its getting better? But still twitching. Also on punchouts, it yaws a little…so maybe I need to reduce the Yaw too. Might be good for Droneart to maybe post a CLI dump that they suggest for Spektrum and Frysky BNF’s.

    Still can’t get recording to go right, hoping they have a fix for that through the ticket I sent.

    Roll: P=25, I=45, D=12

    Pitch: P=25, I=50, D=12

    Hey guys,

    Great to hear from you in the forums!

    In regards to the twitching this is almost always an indication of the nuts that hold the board stack in place being too tight.  Over tightening causes the vibration dampeners to be too compressed so then they don’t perform their purpose.

    As mentioned in the manual, the best procedure is to take each of the nuts apply a small dab of blue loctite and then reapply nut and only give a few turns. The nut should sit slightly above or flush with the tip of the screw. If the loctite isn’t applied, the vibrations that come from flying will eventually work the nuts back down and the twitching/hard vibrations will begin to re-occur.  This is why it might fly okay for a few flights but then start the twitching again.

    For the start and stop recording we are going to post a document that works through the setup for both Spektrum and Frsky. Different radios will vary a bit as it’s mainly adjusting the travel adjust, but it should still be helpful.

    Also Sherwin, just to note we will also upload the CLI Dump of the stock configuration (which should fly fine with the nuts not overly tightened) and also a configuration that David and myself run that actually allows for 9 separate flight parameters. We just needed to confirm no issues with the dump in terms of the other settings and we tried to get implemented into the stock version, but it wasn’t possible.

    So will get that up by tomorrow as well.

    Hey guys,

     

    Please find the channel mapping attached. Also finishing up a full walk through document of setup for Spektrum radio and Frsky (with OpenTX) for those that might find any of the settings helpful.

    Hope everyone has a great one!

    Hey community,

    Hope everyone is doing well.  Wanted to touch base on the vibrations in the video issue that some of you are experiencing.  We have found that the current stock prop isn’t performing as well as original props we had in testing.  We are not sure if it’s a change in the chemical makeup (they were changed to be more flexible so they didn’t break as easily) or a balancing issue or what, but we are looking into this with our supplier to determine what might be the cause.

    With that said and also with their being some delay to the props coming online (especially now if we have to make changes to the production of the props), then an aftermarket prop that we can recommend as it has been tested by our team and proven to perform much better in removing a lot of the current jello in the video is the Gemfan Hulkie 1940 props.  These just recently came to market.

    Usually of course we always encourage you to make purchase of the stock components, but as props is something that needs replaced often and we don’t want you guys being stuck without flying, then we’d give these a recommendation. You might be pleasantly surprised by the improvement.

    I won’t give links here as there are many places they can be purchased from, but just search … Gemfan Hulkie 1940 … and you’ll easily find them, including in an array of different color options. Also just make sure it says 1940 as there is also a 2040 version as well, and those won’t fit, they rub the canopy.

    Hope that helps!

    Hey guys,

    Just a little insight, the stock prop is confirmed to be a cause of a lot of the vibration issues as mentioned previously. We are looking into this and apologize for this occurring.

    These video’s are unlisted, but thought you guys might appreciate seeing them, so you can see for yourself that production props need re-looked at from the production line to determine why they are so far out of balance from previously tested versions.

    So since we want to ensure we get it right and want you to have confidence that we are working diligently on the issue here’s a video comparison.

    Stock production prop flight:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHIicx-npUQ

    Flight with new Gemfan 1940 props:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L09mrTaI1vs

    As you can see the results are night and day. There is still a slight amount of jello, but we feel confident we also have some solutions to improve on this as well from tuning and a few other things we have in testing.

    Again please note these video’s are unlisted, so we’d ask you not share them outside of the forum. But we wanted you guys to get a little insight of the testing that is actively occurring, so you’re just getting raw footage.

    I hope  you guys will give us the opportunity to get everyone up and enjoying the Imprimo HD the way we intended for it to be.

      Hey Ken,

      So great to hear you are getting everything in and it’s all coming together.

      For lipo the stock lipo is 2s 300mAh. We’ve found it to be pretty much the best balance of performance and weight.

      Definitely looking forward to seeing more of your build!

      Thanks so much for your encouragement. The guys from our dev team have been working endless hours to address the known issues and by now we are very close to releasing an official fix and technical announcement. It should be released before mid week next week, just prior to Jamie and myself heading to Germany for an FPV event in South-Bavaria. Please keep sharing your experience, it’s because of community engagement that drives us for constant product improvements.  Is has been our credo ever since we started to work on drones and we’ll make sure to keep it that way.

      Happy weekend everyone.

      Hey Jamie, thanks so much for the update and video links here. I didn’t have any 1940 Gemfan Hulkies on hand, but they were readily available on Amazon so I snagged a set for under $10. I did have some 1535 four blade props on hand from my Aurora68, so I tried these out because I was intrigued by the idea that out of balance props might be the issue. Sure enough, the 1535’s resulted in less vibration and twitching! I’m not sure if you guys recommend 1535 4 blade props, but the motors seemed reasonably warm and not hot, and it flew pretty good, so I was psyched.

      I next tried the 1940 Hulkies that I got in today, and had one immediate observation that others should be aware of…if you use the stock prop screws, I think the Hulkie hubs are a little thicker, so they don’t seat quite as well. I may have stripped the top thread of one of my motors trying to use the stock screws. You should try to use something that is just 1-2mm deeper, I think.

      The Hulkies showed a little more vibration than the 1535’s, but were an improvement over stock. I noticed for both the Hulkies and my 1535 props, they fit much more firmly into the center, while the stock props freely spun around as if they were loose. Perhaps that is an issue?

      Another thing I noticed, as I have been playing around with tightness on the stack nuts. I have mine screwed in pretty lightly but with loctite…however, I noticed that the stack can actually be shifted somewhat if I push on it. If it is not exactly centered, I end up getting a ton of vibration and terrible flight performance. But then if I push on it, it will smooth out. Very sensitive. I may try to tighten the stack screws a little more to see if I can get it consistently seated.

        Really great having you guys supporting to look into the vibration issue as well. That’s what the community and RC hobby is all about. Building a kit is always an added challenge since there are various areas and attributes that contribute to a good or bad build respectively.

        Jamie and David are testing our solution throughout the weekend with a conclusive answer by early this coming week. So far all issues are under control and will be addressed accordingly. I believe we will also be releasing an additional hint sheet which will be included with all future Imprimo versions including the FPV-HD version which takes emphasis on the importance of mounting and securing the stack correctly. Additional new, well balanced propellers are provided with all future orders.

        Perhaps we will review the hardware, especially the screws, included with the kit as well. Really appreciate you sharing your additional findings.

        Hey Sherwin,

        Really appreciate your feedback and already giving some prop options a try.  This is why the community is so great!

        Your thoughts and input is always so very helpful.

        We also are putting some 4 blade props to the test as well and confirm results. So it’s great to hear your input on that.

        For the tightness of the props on the shaft, this is certainly what we prefer and they were supposed to tighten up the stock prop in moulding to meet these same tolerances but they never quite got it right it seems. It of course shouldn’t have effect since the screws lock it in place so it seems the vibrations really mainly come from the outer prop themselves.

        We of course always encourage using the prop screws to hold the props in place, but we’ve found we kind of prefer not using any screws when the prop fits tightly on the shaft like the Gemfan’s. It’s less weight at the hub since the screws aren’t required and also if a crash occurs the props just “slips” or comes off the shaft vs the props impact when the screws are installed. So again we can’t warranty that and say do so at your own risks. But I know this is a community of people that like to try different things and look for improvements, so just a mention. 😉

        As Chris mentioned we are also going to be doing a build video that puts some empahasis on the screws/nut and stack mounting/combination.

        Again thanks so much for sharing your findings as we find it’s always helpful when the community has the same conclusion. Although as you know we thoroughly test our products and never want the community to feel like “testers”. Unfortunately the stock props just failed in the end to give the right results. So we are hopeful to have the fix implemented quickly.

        Best regards,
        Jamie

    Hope i get mine up in the air one day (technical issues).

    I have some 2035 GemFan here for the little guy. I changed the Canopy to fit the bigger props (need to be a bit smaller). If everything works, i´ll upload the file on Thingiverse, and here. I Also made a different MotorGuard. 🙂

    Is anybody want to use a bigger Battery?

      Great to see actual users working on their own mods for the Imprimo 🙂 3D printing has so much endless flexibility.   For the battery, what are you thinking of in terms of capacity and cells, perhaps we can even introduce an optional battery for the Imprimo series. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Really nice work man on the custom 3D files. Looking great and way to make adjustments for the 2035’s!

    As for the technical issue you can open a ticket with us man at http://www.droneart.com/ticket

    I am more and more thinking somehow you got a Spektrum version rather than the Frsky version.

    I know you know your stuff, so the binding issue is leaning me more and more that way.

    Okay – It’s official now. Here is my very own build of the Imprimo HD version 🙂 Took me about 45 min to get the HD version fully built without any major issues.  It was built in preparation for the 3rd Team-Noe South German FPV event which takes place this weekend in Noerdlingen, Germany. See you there!

    Chris, your Imprimo build looks great! Hope you have fun flying it!

    I wanted to thank the Droneart team for getting me a replacement board since one of the LED’s on my original board was missing (sheared off). I can’t praise Droneart/RCL customer service enough! They really stand behind their products and I feel good about being an early adopter.

    I rebuilt the Imp last night with the replacement board (all LEDs look good) and tried to closely follow the instructions on the stack screws (loctite, not overtightened, etc.). Although I did get some shakes, I’ve found that if you push on the board to seat it, it tends to go away. There must be a better, more consistent way to get rid of the shakes, so I’ll continue to experiment with the stack screw/nut tightness.

    Confirming also that the 1535 props I’ve been using work just fine for indoor flying, although it does require more throttle to hover. Also popped the Gemfan Hulkies back on and they work well too. Per one of Jamie’s other comments, they can indeed be flown with the prop screws…I like how this will reduce weight and potential reduce prop damage in the event of a crash, so as I get more confident flying I may end up doing this (with full knowledge it may void the warranty). For now I’ll fly with the screws installed as per normal.

    While I dig the plug and play design of the Imp, one thing I’ve noticed–the long FPV antenna can tend to bend up and get caught by the props when landing–I’ve got a few nicks in mine already, so maybe next design might be to make this shorter. For now I tuck it into the battery mounting to try to keep it out of the way.

    Will try to get some flying in this weekend!

      We will certainly make use of your feedback. We are continuously looking into releasing product improvements. I have been with Jamie these few days at an event back in Germany, and I can say, he’s never satisfied with his solutions – he is striving to identify even better solutions – so do all members of the dev team – endless hours of customer devotion.

      This is a typical reflection of what we stand for, striving to make it right, even if things do go wrong, we don’t hide nor do we run, we stay to get things as they should be and move forward to the next project.

      Each time bringing us one step closer to what we ultimately want to accomplish. The AEON appears to be just that 😀

    Update… the gemfan hulkie props are better but still too much vibration to enjoy  flying it, however much better than the stock props. I’ve found that the four blade props from the baby hawk r preform better but they also render a little jello in the video. So I believe the is another underlying issue with vibration, as I know these are excellent props and I have no vibration on my baby hawk. Still waiting on the Cli dump mentioned before. I believe the rest of the issues are in the tune or possibly in the motors. I’d like to thank Chris for standing behind the product quality and taking care of me as a customer. When will proper batteries be available? Would love that cli dump that Jamie was talking about, also would love to know if there is a way to set up recording for auto record. And I believe it should be stated in the product description that for recording you will need more than a six channel transmitter. Just a suggestion. As I will never be able to use this function unless I buy an frsky board for this drone. Only because I recently switched to a taranis radio for all my new builds.

    Seems my last post was removed for some reason. I praised their customer service and listed a very good performing 4 blade prop. Added a couple suggestions about listing the channel number requirements for future buyers on the HD version. Even got a thank you reply from another user. And now my post is removed. Hmmm. Seems odd. Oh well. Guess that’s just how it goes. Would still love the cli dump that was being used by Jamie as his video is ten times better than anything I can get from this little ship. Good day. And thanks again. Says a lot.

    So I FINALLY got my Imprimo finished… wow, what a build it was! The hardest part was getting a flight controller/ESC stack that would fit in the frame. I put the receiver and VTx below the frame where the original HD VTx would go, and they fit well. Just did a quick test flight in my basement, and it got airborne!! Not that I wouldn’t have doubted it, but there’s so much room for stuff to go wrong.

    Here is my parts list:

    3D Printed Imprimo frame/Camera mount
    Spedix IS100 FC/4-in-1 ESC stack
    Racerstar BR1103 1103-8000kV motors
    NewBeeDrone Beeceiver (FrSky)
    Runcam Nano camera
    Runcam TX200U VTx

        Well unfortunately my basement is so small that the only way I can really go is up… lol… The only issue I am having is with a battery strap. I use the 3D printed long bottom piece, where the antenna sticks out the back… I have more than enough room for the components, but with the way the wiring goes I can’t get a strap through there.

        So for now I use a zip tie to secure the battery, along with a non-slip gel pad from ReadyMadeRC.

        I can’t wait to get it outside! I use Fatshark Dominator v3 goggles that has a DVR, and I have a YouTube channel. When I get it flying I’ll post a link here. I am an experienced builder, but still a rookie flyer, so you won’t see anything too crazy… lol..

    Well unfortunately my basement is so small that the only way I can really go is up… lol… The only issue I am having is with a battery strap. I use the 3D printed long bottom piece, where the antenna sticks out the back… I have more than enough room for the components, but with the way the wiring goes I can’t get a strap through there.

    So for now I use a zip tie to secure the battery, along with a non-slip gel pad from ReadyMadeRC.

    I can’t wait to get it outside! I use Fatshark Dominator v3 goggles that has a DVR, and I have a YouTube channel. When I get it flying I’ll post a link here. I am an experienced builder, but still a rookie flyer, so you won’t see anything too crazy… lol..

    In regards to mounting the lipo. You should be able to use the tabs on that lower piece and find locally some small rubber bands (or can wrap them a few times on the tabs), for strapping the lipo in.  So just another option available. But if the zip tie is working then hey good enough. 🙂

    Again really excellent build and looking forward to the flights for sure.

      I did try that with the rubber band, but I must have bought cheap rubber bands because it broke apart after a few weeks or so. Might just be safer with the zip tie… lol…

    Just curious if the cli dump that Jamie flies with will ever be posted, and if the jello shake will ever be resolved? Better with the avan props but still no fun to fly. I have not ever noticed a twitch in mine. But something is making the camera shake bad enough to make it no fun to fly. Just curious if anything ever came up as a total solution.

    Hey my97cobra,

    Hope all is going well. The dump that I was flying with was heavily modified in terms of even it changing up a lot of the layout.

    So I have my team mate creating a new dump that follows all of the standard layout of the original stock file, but with adjusted flight parameters and also some adjustments for the gyro, that may be of help.

    Please note that this new file will also be tuned based on the Avan 2″ props as we found them to also be the best option.

    Something else that you may find helpful is that the canopy itself where the camera sits does have a little give to it. This bit of flex can also cause vibrations. Something you may want to try is getting double sided foam or clear gel tape and mounting on the edges of the Imprimo so that it helps pad/lock down the canopy a bit more.

    I have attached images for reference.

    Best regards,

    Jamie

    Thanks for the update, Jamie. Looking forward to the tune. I ended up ordering and installing the non-HD AIO cam, and the Imprimo is great to fly through goggles now. I’ve ordered some of the new Avan props, and may try to troubleshoot the HD-cam later on. At least for now, the Imp is very flyable (and fun to fly, although I’ve only had a couple of flights in to test it).

    Hey SamMateo,

    Great to hear that you are up and flying with the standard FPV. It does tend to offer less vibration due to a wider FOV available on the standard camera.

    The AVAN props definitely have been the best option we’ve found so far. Also a noticeable increase in lift/performance on those props.

    A few things to mention for everyone that you might find helpful for a little bit of extra dialing in is doing the following…

    In configuration on BetaFlight adjust the gyro update frequency & PID loop frequency to 4/4.

    Also switching on airmode, anti_gravity, and dynamic_filter maybe helpful for an improved flight experience.

    Once changes have been made make sure of course to hit save or the changes won’t be saved.

    Hope that information helps.

    One last thing I’ve found is just a dab of super glue on the two pieces that hold the upper and lower canopy lock them in place so they don’t fly off during a crash. Those little pieces can be a pain to find. 😀

    Best regards,

    Jamie

    Thanks Jamie. I got the Avan props today and wow the clearance is really tight on them. Look forward to flying them. Will also check Betaflight to see if the modes you’ve indicated are enabled (I did turn on Air Mode) but not sure about anti grav, etc.
