  7. 7. Ecilop EasyYou will need the following additional components (not included):
  8. 8. Ecilop Easy You will need the following additional components (not included):1. A digital camera (Sony NEX-5N is recommended);2. A remote control unit (Futaba T8J or a different mode);3. Quadcopter flight controller with a camera stabilization function(DJI NAZA or a different model);4. Two gyroscopes (Turnigy Mini MEMS or a different model);5. Two park-size servos (MKS DS8910 or a different model);6. Four engines: the distance between mounting screws should be 19mm (MT3506-25 or a different model);7. Four propellers: maximal diameter 14" (APC12x3.8 or a different);8. Four speed controllers (T-Motor ESC 18A or a different model);9. A battery (5000mAh 4S 25C or a different 3-5S model);10. An FPV camera with a wide lens (optional);11. A video transmitter (FOXTECH 5.8G 200mw or a different model);12. Video goggles with a receiver (Fat Shark or a different model).
  9. 9. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 1. Install the camera tilt axis lock into the axial unit. 2. Fasten two balance beam stands using two screwdrivers on its opposite sides. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  10. 10. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction3. Use bolts to fasten two fixers of the cameras secondtilt axis. Use moderate torque.
  11. 11. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 4. Fasten the springs holder. 5. Fasten the camera lock, but leave the bolts a bit loose.
  12. 12. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 6. The universal camera fixture allows you to install any camera on the drone. The camera is fixated with a regular tripod screw and should be flipped vertically. The ratio of the mass of the camera to the mass of the battery should be in the range of 0.9 - 1.35 (mass of the camera divided by the mass of the battery). ! It is not recommended to use cameras heavier than 650 gr!
  13. 13. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 7. Install and fasten the servo gears. Install under the servo nylon washers to increase the gap if neaded. 8. Attach dampers to the equipment platform using nuts. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  14. 14. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction9. Bolt up the axial unit to ball bearings on theequipment platform. Use washers if you need to fill thegaps. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  15. 15. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 10. Loosen the bolts on the locks and tighten them up again. This operation will help you eliminate the slight deviation of the locks from the rotation axis. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  16. 16. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction11. Bolt up the engine stands to the main frame.Notice the holes on the sides of stands: 6 mm holes mustface forward and backward, while chassis stands must beoriented to the left and to the right.Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  17. 17. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 12. Put rubber rings on the landing skids. Install the chassis stand locks into the landing skids. Use an epoxyde or cyanoacrylate adhesive to hold them in place. 13. Fasten the landing skids on the chassis stands. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  18. 18. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 14. Attach the electronic equipment platform to the main frame. Hold the rubber dampers with pliers when screwing the bolts. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied. 15. Bolt up the engines. Medium strength threadlocker must be applied.
  19. 19. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction16. Assemble and fasten the frame for the receivers antennas.
  20. 20. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction17. Install the electronic equipment: a receiver, anautopilot, speed controllers, gyroscopes, a voltagestabilizer, an FPV camera, an OSD module, a videotransmitter. The servo-mechanisms are connected tothe gyroscopes, gyroscopes are connected to theonboard controller, and the controller is connected tothe receiver. To control both gyroscopes (mode andgain), you can use one channel of the receiver or theprogrammable output of the onboardcontroller.Gyroscopes should be installed on the servoside. Side tilt (roll) axle gyroscope is to be set on theservo. To minimize influence of the noises of the servo -use double sided sticker with metal plate in between(usually is included in gyroscope kit). Wires must notrub or tap into gyroscope. The cables connecting themoving parts of the drone must be soft and bent into aloop. The cables must pose minimal obstruction to therotation of structural elements. Use a separate powerswitch for onboard electronics.
  21. 21. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 18. The LED is powered through an inverter. 3S-5S Li-Po battery can be used as a power source. Connection polarity does not matter. Power soutce: 11-24V AC/DC. Assemble the LED mount using cyanoacrylate glue. Screw on the LED using isolation washers.Fixate the LED mount and wires on the aircraft frame. Connect to the power source.
  22. 22. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 19. Take the lens off the camera. Fasten the camera body on the gimbal. Install the lens.
  23. 23. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 20. Install the battery platform on the balance beams. Glue the soft edge padding to the balance beam stands to ensure close contact with the battery. Select thick or thin spacers, depending on the thickness of your battery. 21. Use peel-n-stick bands to lock the battery in place. To help the battery cable bend, move the battery connector from the cable to the body of the battery.
  24. 24. Ecilop EasyAssembly instruction 22. Put the drone on the side. Move the battery along the balance beam stands to achieve a perfect balance. Lock the battery platform in the necessary position. 23. Put the drone on the landing skids. Move the battery forward and backward to reach acceptable balance in the lengthwise direction. If necessary, turn the battery platform. Mark the right fixation position on the battery. Always use identical batteries.
  25. 25. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction24. Loosen the camera lock bolts. Move the camera left and right toreach optimal balance in the lateral direction. Lock the camera in thenecessary position.25. Install the springs between the servo gear and the frame. SpringsEcilop V1209 1.0N/mm (stronger, default) - This type of springs is usedin most cases. Springs Ecilop V1209 0.4N/mm (weaker, optional) - Withthese springs installed, the inertial stabilization effect is stronger, butsome swaying may occur. These springs require more preciseadjustment of the camera mount and the use of softer cables and fasterservo gears.
  26. 26. Ecilop Easy Assembly instruction26. Configure the electronic 27. Turn the drone on and checkequipment as specified in the the gyroscopes reaction.manual for your additional When the equipment is turnedequipment. on, the gimbal must be stable, otherwise the gyroscopes will be initialized incorrectly and the camera will be tilted. Switch to reverse, if necessary. Use the "normal" mode for gyroscopes. Start with the maximum reaction value. If the servo gear starts vibrating, reduce the gyroscope reaction value. Push the battery with a finger: if it swings, increase the gyroscope gain value.
