MV170NV infrared supported quad ready

Today I finished all the remaining, so the quad is finally ready for the first takeoff.

I had to put some additional heatsinks for the LED because it got hot really fast. On the other side, the light output is excellent. It seems that the Runcam Owl is much more sensitive to infrared light than the former CC1564 camera. However, some genius@Runcam decided to sell this product with an IR blocking filter!!! so I had to replace the factory lens for another, IR allow one.

Simply check the difference:

And the final pictures about the build:

    Hi, just wanted to say well done … just amazed at what people can build with these printers. I got one for Christmas and have hit one snag after another … old hands and eyes make adjusting ruff.
