Description

Turn any small foam wing into a ballistic FPV platform with this lightweight G10 CNC cut FPV pod!

Weighing in at a tiny 60g this unit fits into a slot cut in the nose of your EPP wing and provides a secure “blunt nose” mounting platform for your flight battery, micro FPV camera and Mobius style HD camera.

Installation

This FPV Pod will fit perfectly onto the HobbyKing Bonsai EPP flying wing. Other wings may require some extra cutting and modification to fit.

  1. Mark and then cut a square piece from the nose of your wing. This should be 66mm wide and 80mm deep. On the Bonsai, cut all the way back to the small horizontal spar that runs in front of the receiver bay.
  2. Slot the pod into this cutout and glue into place. Hot glue seems to work best here as it fills any gaps (just don’t touch your glue gun to the EPP as it will melt).

Setup and Flying the Bonsai FPV Wing

The original Bonsai was designed to be an ultra-lightweight foam wing for calm/indoor flying. Adding the FPV pod turns it into a ballistic FPV beastie! If you are looking for a relaxing FPV experience then this may not be the wing for you.

The recommended power system is 2204 – 2206/2000kv motor | 12-18A ESC | 5040 – 6040 prop | 1300mah 3S 30-40C LiPo

I used SimonK firmware on the ESCs to give better throttle response. The props were the HQProps (5040 bullnose). This powertrain can be lifted directly from a miniquad or the FliteTest “Mighty Mini” pack.

Flying

This setup will give you a good 10 minutes of flying at moderate to high throttle settings. These notes should help for some successful first FPV flights:

  • Use the recommended throws and CG from the Bonsai instructions. Put around 30-50% expo on both elevator and aileron.
  • Start off with a couple of degrees of up elevator mixed in. This acts as fake reflex for the airfoil and will help you get airborne without planting it.
  • Use 50-75% throttle for launch. These are high-power setups and full throttle is too much on launch.
  • I found a firm “backhand discus” type launch about 45 degree nose up gave a nice smooth launch.
  • Be careful of pulling to hard in the turns as the increased weight will cause a tip stall and spiral dive.

Target weights – 400 grams with 2206 setup

    Turns a bonsai or mini popwing into one wicked fpv ride! I set mine up with an rctimer 1804 2400kv motor swinging a 4.75×4.75 prop, red brick 10a esc, ~800mah 3s, 5v bec and a mobius cam on a dal 600mw 5.8g vtx.

    Man that’s awesome. Awesome price to an awesome product quality. Couldn’t think on a better update for my bonsai. It was almost abandoned on my room until I saw this.

    The price is cheap as chips for it’s quality, nice shipping cost to the other part of the world and it arrived fast. Easy to mount and man…today it was the maiden flight, it flew as on rails….Couln’t be more happy.
