How To Build Budget Long Range FPV Drone // Eachine Tyro129 Beginner Build Guide

so in this video I'm gonna be showing you how to build the Taira 1 to 9 kit here now this is going to be an absolute beginners guide and I'm gonna teach you every single thing you need to know and why things are being connected where they are being connected to and if any issues were to arise how to debug and how to figure out now I'll take you through the steps from building it all the way down to the configuration and the flight and tuning will be in a later video once I go out and fly it so the first thing you want to do is assemble the frame now it's very important to take something into consideration when you're assembling the frame you're gonna get a bag of screws and you're not gonna know which is which they're the longest longest screws that you're gonna find in the bag will go into the inner most 4 holes right here and the reason for that is that screw will go in go through this nut now this not the sharp slide supposed to be on the bottom because it's supposed to dig into the carbon fiber and hold it and then you're left with a little bit screw popping out and then you put these plastics and offs right on top as you can tell on the outer part you want to put these nuts into place on top here and these are the slightly shorter screws that will go here and that's all you need to do now also take something into consideration when putting the arms you want these ridges to be on the outer part of the frame because that's somehow kind of will help you protect the motor slightly because that is the you know the front here and the front here so if we flip it over you'll see that the thicker side or the side that has the ridges is towards the outside so this would be towards the front and that would be towards the back now let's quickly talk about some of the components that are being used here and the correct names now the bottom most thing that's going to be on the frame is the ESC which stands for electronic speed controller which is the thing that will drive the motors and tell them what speed to be on next we have the flight controller this is the main brain of the whole operation this will receive your input and also tell the motors what to do and the ESC what to do in order for you to control your quadcopter and this also has the on-screen display which will give you valuable information on your screen like battery voltage current GPS location all these types of things which is really cool next is the VTX this is the video transmitter this will go all the way up top on the stack now when I reference the stack that means the things that are stacked up inside we call them stacks so this is gonna be on the top of the stack here next we have this little orange thing this is actually the GPS here and I'll also show you how to connect it and they've made it very simple was the least amount of soldering for this whole kit which is really nice for beginners and it just makes things a lot easier for everybody and they also provide you with every single why you're gonna need which we'll cover in a bit and they even give you a pretty decent camera which is a cat X this is a name-brand camera which is really great that they even provide this to you so you're getting quite a lot for your money here and I'm pretty much amazed at the amount of things they've managed to place in this kit for the price they're selling it at even the packaging was nice and they also give you a pre-made xt60 this is where the battery would be connected to and this will also be connected to electronic speed controller which will do it together now they also give you this 3d printed part in order for you to mount your antenna when they give this to you they also give you a nut that's supposed to go on the other side but don't place it in because then this will not get a good connection and you'll have a high probability of burning your video transmitter so just stick it in leave it like that and then when you put your antenna in you want to twist it as hard as you can because look look you see how it's loose right here right now and then you want to just keep twisting it twisting it until this gets really rough to see now the whole thing is moving when I'm moving this that's what you want that's a good connection right here and this will not have your VTX blah and make sure you always plug in your antenna before you're turning on your quadcopter or your will burn the video transmitter eventually you'll also need some tools preferably this right here this is really great for the nuts they're titanium and I highly recommend because it's just a small kit that you get which I'll have a link down below as well these are really great to help me enable me to put the nuts into place and this is also a really great tool which has interchangeable hex driver heads so you don't strip the screws because if you strip the screw on these sometimes you could render your whole quadcopter useless these are titanium coated and they come with every single bit you will ever need for a quadcopter from 1.5 millimeter all the way up to three millimeter highly recommended and very easy to change just like that so this is a really this is a must have if you have a quadcopter and again it's linked down below some tweezers also these are really cheap I'll have some link down below as well and let's get started so usually the first thing that I like to do is start soldering everything on the flight controller because it makes everything so much easier from every single quad that I've built so far now for this flight controller we're not going to need to solder anything which is really great that's why they've made it super easy for everybody so let's just take a look at the plugs they provide us and where does each of them go now it's very important to put them in the exact correct place or you might have a chance of burning something so you get this black wire here which will go up right there so the usb will be up to the left and this is what's going to supply the signal to the electronic speed controller and this is going to be connected to the ESC once we place it into place so we have that finished right there next down the line will be the camera wire now the camera wire is the shortest of them all and it has this four pin connector here and this I think 7 pin connector or 6 pin connector but it doesn't really matter the one that has the small one in a big one and it's this short this is the one that you're going to need and you want to grab the small side and connect it next to this right here which is the ESC part and now the end of this will connect to your camera which we'll cover once we get to that step next down the line we're gonna grab our red blue white and black wire and this is going to be for the GPS now what you want to do is you want to go ahead and get the big side because it has one smaller than the other so what you want to grab is the larger side of this wire which is this one right here and you want to go ahead and plug it in right here right on the bottom right if you have the same orientation make sure the arrow is pointing forward and if you don't know which way this actually goes you could take a look on the inside you'll see the pins are to the top side sticking out in there and you describe your connector and make you want to make sure the holes are to the top as well then you just bring it in and go ahead and just connect it and that's it that's for GPS next down the line is going to be our video transmitter now the video transmitter wire is exactly the same thing on both sides so you can just plug it in just like that which is this wire right here they're both exactly the same size here and obviously the other side is going to be connected into your video transmitter so now for the flight controller were actually done this is the easiest one I've ever done on my videos because everything is just connectors here so the next thing we want to look at is electronic speed controller now the orientation of the electronic speed controller is very important because it dictates which motor is what because each motor has the number so usually it's the bottom right is motor 1 and then it goes motor 2 motor 3 and motor 4 and if you take a really close look at the ESC you'll find it says number 1 right in that corner and then you'll find number 2 right in that corner and then number 3 and number 4 right in the corner there and that's how we know we have the orientation correctly here so now the next step is to install the xc60 into the ESC now what I'm planning on doing is I'm going to stick it through this bottom hole right here and then it'll end up going through that now the GND references to the black wire right here so we'll start off with that one right there we're gonna place it in place to make sure it has a good grip and slowly bring it down now you want this to be bent out this way because we don't want it to touch any other component that could ruin something for us so just like that as you can tell I just put my finger and now it's bent outside like this and that's gonna be really great here now we're gonna start soldering this into place now what I recommend you do is you increase the temperature to around 400 degrees 410 to 400 degrees Celsius it'll make everything easier to solder because these are pretty big paths and very thick wires so I'm just gonna place my soldering iron right on top and just feed it some solder until I'm satisfied with it okay and that's looking pretty good I'm just gonna make sure I heat up the whole pad here alright so that's looking great we'll double check it together so now I have a really clean joint now let's go ahead and do the same thing to the red one which is going to be where it says bat right there so I'm gonna put that in I'm gonna bend this back this way because I don't want it to go that way and that's gonna be very good it's gonna be held into place here so I'm gonna put my soldering iron right at the pad and push towards the wire here and then just start bringing in my solder and just start adding until everything is covered here let it melt a little you want it to be nice and shiny okay see like this I've note now I know that I've heated up the pad both the pad and the wire which is very good and that means we have a really good connection here so the next step is the motors now I'm gonna do one motor with you and then I'm gonna skip over the rest and then we can go on to the next steps this is gonna be one of the easiest and fastest bills I've ever done on the channel alright so you want to put them through the hole from the bottom it's the best way to do it here right now and the way to do it is it's gonna be a little bit difficult to do it just like this you want to do is grab the motor wire wrap towards the end around right here and just give it a bend and it'll give you a 90 degree angle and then what you can do just come in and just slide it through it'll slide in super easy and super fast obviously if the motor wire was made to fit in that hole perfect if not then you might have to modify slightly so we have now three of them into place here and we're gonna add solder the same way we added to the xt60 so I'm gonna remove this screw right here now I recommend when you start especially if you're right-handed to start from the leftmost side because it just gets easier if you're left-handed you might want to start from the right side just makes everything a little bit easier so I know what I want to do is put the soldering tip on the pad itself right here and push on the wire so now I know I'm touching both and just come in and just add just step-by-step then you can start adding to the other side because if it melts from the other side that means the pad has heated up correctly so we're gonna keep that keep that there for a little and that should be great we're gonna do the same thing to this one here I'm touching both the pad and the wire I'm actually pushing on the wire and there we go that looks nice okay and we're gonna do the same thing here okay there we go it's always good to double check see if anything is touching and everything should be pretty clean now we have ourself really really nice clean joints so I'm gonna go ahead and skip over the rest of these motors and it will come back and take it from there all right guys now once those are into place and you don't have to put them through the bottom because not all of them will actually go all the way through I've actually put the rest right on top I've added a little bit of solder on the wire and that and then just press them on and now I'm good to go however as you can tell I kind of forgot to put the heat shrink but that's okay I'll just use tape instead so now what is the next step I think we're actually completely done with soldering now so you had to solder how many here we had six twelve and fourteen so you just have to slaughter fourteen points and you're good in that perspective or possibly the receiver also so that'll probably come in and play a big role so let's see what's the next step well the next step is we want to grab our black connector here and let's actually connect that into place because it'll make our life easier make sure you connect it the correct way if it's not going in don't push it too hard because the pins in small are really tiny so now we know this is the back side which is where the capacitor is it's very good that you keep this capacitor make sure these two don't touch each other if they do then it's oh it's gonna be a nightmare for you so this is the back currently and you want to find the flight control and find the arrow key and that means forward so this is the back this is the forward you can tell by these two camera plates here and we're just gonna plug in our little ESC connector here and make sure our obviously our little standoffs are into place then we're gonna come in and bring this guy right in then I'm gonna go ahead and screw in my other standoffs that'll go right on top of it now depending on how it's going to fly you might need to add rubber o-rings I'll have some link down below now right now I'm building it without those because I wanted to simulate like someone who got it who doesn't have those rubber o-rings now they should have actually given us some inside the kit itself that would have been really great here but you know they didn't so what you want to do next is grab your camera now you can place this any way you want I'm just setting them up right in the middle Center holes and there's the center holes right here and that's where that's going in now this screw is going to be the small Phillips type screw so you're gonna need a Phillips driver and that'll go in right there so we got those to know when you're gonna put this in make sure the connector is to the top that's very important or you'll get your video feed to be upside down now this is the camera wire right here so we're just gonna grab it and there's these two little dots right on top and you want those to go in on top just like that there we go so the red wires gonna be to the most left here very important you do that next we want to just slide the camera plate into the frame here sometimes it can be a little bit tricky but you know it happens on every frame alright so now I got that into place now we can actually change the angle that we want the camera to be so that's into place now that our camera is actually completely finished now we are connected next we want to grab our VT X now the VT x orientation is very important because our little connector is going to come in connect right here for the antenna so what I found to be best was to have it to place to the right side so we're gonna place that to the right side but before we do that let's grab our VT x wire which is not the blue one this one here and we're gonna connect it on its connector there we go and I'm just double checking okay yep looks perfect and I'm gonna bring it in as you can tell I'm gonna go through around this wire I'm gonna have the wire do this right here so it's gonna go through the middle and then from the outside here and that will keep it very secure into place there we go now we have our VT X into place we can start putting in our plastic nuts to hold everything into place now be careful when you're putting this on all the nuts usually sometimes they could pop components off so just take it easy if you notice it pushing something then just kind of just you know just leave it as is and try to tighten it from another position so now we're left with two wires here we're left with the GPS wire which is this guy right here and we're also left with the receiver wire which is right here now what I'm gonna do next is I'm gonna install my standoffs and the the GPS I'm planning on putting it right on top of the frame but if you're just starting out don't put the Jeep just leave it without the GPS first keep that off until you get a little bit more comfortable with that that's what I would do like for example the first time I turn it on and I'm gonna go fly I'm gonna have the GPS disconnected in case it wants to flip or something so I just don't risk damaging right from the beginning and having to buy a new one and this happens on everything even new quads that you buy that are pre-built so what's really nice is you could just easily remove the v-tex and we're done and we can just bring it back so I'm actually gonna remove this wire for now there we go so now we have something that looks like this now the next step what I'm going to do is I'm going to bring in my VTX and ten amount now what I find to be best here is obviously you want these to come out like this so you want those two to be on the outer side so you want that concave to be on top right here and I'm going to bring it and slide it on the back right there it's really nice this is really flexible tepee mounted stuff now we're left with this connector don't apply a lot of pressure on it just have it you know just bend it nice and easy and it's gonna be sticking up like this for now just plug it into place and then find its optimal location without forcing it because we can also move the base plate of that and then I'm just gonna bend that down like that and now we have a really nice solid connection that's just right there so take it easier with that don't you don't want to rip it because if you rip it you won't know and you'll eventually have no video and then people start complaining oh the worst kid in my life but it was actually a user fault and a lot of this does happen so now I'm left with this wire right here so what am I gonna do with this why well I need to go grab myself a receiver now what I'm going to do is I'm gonna go grab my receiver it's going to be an S bus FR sky receiver now if you don't know which transmitter and receiver to purchase I highly recommend you get the x9 light or the x9 light Pro I'll have them link down below also have some coupon codes for 15% off on that which is BG mesh one and I'll have it also down below and now I'm gonna go grab my receiver and then we're gonna install it and go over the beta flight settings okay so now the next step is of routed the receiver wire all the way from the below of the stock because I'm gonna set it up here because I have a very long antenna for my type of receiver it's also nest bus but this is the r9 this is a long-range receiver that comes that looks like this it's really really tiny it's a bit more expensive if you don't know what this is but if you're having fr sky it'll work the same way just know where your eye bus 5-volt and ground is going to be so let's go ahead and set this up so the yellow wire is going to be s bus the red wire is going to be five volt and the black wire is going to ground so once they're stripped what you want to do is you want to kind of just twist the wires make sure they're twisted really nicely it doesn't matter the length because we can do that later and what I like to do is I get the solder to just like levitate in the air like this here and then I just come in and I put a little slot on the tip and then I just touch the wire like that and now we have some solder on these wires it's very important to always put solder on the wires okay now these are gonna be a bit too long so I'm gonna go ahead and trim them so my receiver I could see the plus and the minus it might be very hard for you to see but I see my plus goes here minus goes here and I know my S bus goes in this corner so since I'm right-handed it's best for me to start from the left side so this is where my s bus is going to be on that corner right there so what I'm gonna do is I'm going to heat up my pad here make sure make sure your tip is clean especially when we're in these little tight areas so make sure you heat up the pad first and then you could just drop that wire right in the hole there we go next is going to be the ground which was this one here okay next was the five volt then I'll double check these also after I saw her everything into place there we go and just make sure nothing is touching on the bottom neither on the top so it's looking really really nice here so that's awesome so now my receiver is basically done but I want what I want to do first is I want to go ahead and add some heat-shrink on to this alright so once you plug it in you should see up here you should get some sort of a comport try them all until one of them works once you click connect you want to go to the port's tab which is this right here and you want to make sure under UART to the serial Rx is enabled basically you want it to look like this and this is how you want it to look like here so this is gonna be for GPS and this is going to be for the receiver and yeah just make sure it looks like that if it doesn't change it accordingly and then click Save and reboot which is very important so we're just gonna save and reboot here now we need to go to the motors and make sure there's turning around in the same orientation here all right so now I'm gonna go ahead and plug in a battery now again make sure you have no propellers on the quadcopter so we're gonna plug it in hopefully nothing catches fire all right so now that's booted then we want to go to I understand the risk and we're gonna suspend motor one here see and that's this one spinning and if we take a look at the diagram here it'll show us that that is motor one and if we do motor to that one should spin and that one is spinning currently so that's perfect and then motor three so you just double-check that the orientation is correct before the direction so all the motors are in the correct order here now we want to make sure they're spinning in there right direct so if we turn on the motor one it should be spinning clockwise as you can tell there's the arrow so we'll just run that up a little bit like this put my finger around it and I find that spinning correctly I just put my finger lightly around it and it'll just spin it all right sit down ones good motor – and that looks great counter clockwise and we're gonna do motor three and this is perfect as well so it's moving my finger in the correct direction and we're gonna see that last one here okay and this one's good too so if for some reason one of the motors was not spinning in the correct direction here then what you'd want to do is just change out to wire so for example let's say this motor was spinning in the wrong direction so we would want to disconnect everything obviously and then take any two wires from this motor and then flip them on the ESC so we could take this one put it here in this one here or just any two wires just flip them and then that's it the motor will change its direction it doesn't matter which wire but only two have to be flipped so any two would do that would do the trick just fine and well that's gonna conclude it for this video guys I really hope you guys enjoyed it the battery will go down here and yeah that's it it's gonna be a pretty interesting flight I think this is my first official 7 inch with 7 inch props so I'm very curious how it's gonna handle the frameworks of good quality it does have a little flex but the arms are really thick so it should it's you know it's not meant to do anything crazy where they're supposed to you know you're supposed to take it easy and do some long-range stuff and yeah I'm just really curious how that's gonna turn out and well that's it guys I'll have everything here link down below from the tools to the soldering stations that I use just everything I'd recommend I'll have a link down below if you could check those out as greatly support the channel and I'll see you the next one peace out guys

  1. sickfast Moody

    Great vid for a noob and that I am. I have raced rc cars for many years a long time ago. this is very different with the need to flash programs and bind receiver and controller anyway is everything in this kit upgradable/replaceable

  2. Lone Wolf Gaming

    Hey Drone Mesh, I have bought myself the Tyro 119 and have trouble setting up the reciever. I have an FSI6X and using IBUS but the reciever isn´t powering up. What am I doing wrong. Need help! I am new to the hobby and slowly losing intrest and patient. Hope you have the time to answer me.

  3. GuyReviews

    What do you use for fpv setup? Like goggles, controller I mean. I have a spektrum dxe controller and looking to get into a race drone but dont know what transmitter, esc, goggles would work with my controller.

  4. Dio Brando

    This is a beginners guide, right? Show them how to mount the CW / CCW motors at the right place man. If someone change the nuts he probably gets a prop in the face because you don´t give a shit. Or at least explain it, please.

  5. Fred Jackson

    Thanks for the video. Definitely helped me get it done faster. Did you flash your R9 receiver? If so what firmware did you use? I'm using the flex firmware but can't get the flight controller to recognize it in Betaflight. It binds fine but won't work with the flight controller, I flashed the flight controller and tried different firmware on the R9 but nothing works? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Sven Trautmann

    Very nice video, thank you very much. Do you use the R9mm receiver, too? Can you tell my, how did you combine it with the flight controller? Do you have used an connector, or have you solder it? Is f.Port to Rx correct, or did you use another way?
    Thank you very much for help, the r9 system is very new for me.

  7. Stephan Reef

    Hey DroneMesh. I got this quad aswell, and i am getting into longrange too. So i was wondering if you could do a video about a groundstation. The best cheap budget you can make on a tripod. I am searching everywhere and so much info…..pfff… i hope that you can hell me / us. For the perfect sollution. Thumbs up for all your wotk mate. Much appreciated

  8. AphexTwin

    Don't put pricing on your videos just for clicks. That's a bullshit way to do things. This is a $150 set up not including Tx and batteries. Extremely misleading.

  9. Gary Van Ausdle

    Thanks man. This is the best examination I've come across to assemble this. I can see it and you weren't too fast. The only thing is I have a flysky controller n reciever. Hope to make that work.

  10. aglandorf75

    How to configure the FPV on this Quad? Means the Channels and Power settings.. and I think my camera does not work, I only get a grey Image. Using the Eachine ROTG02 as Monitor. Just getting into the Hobby and have Not decided which googles I want to Go with.
