Quadcopter Gallery: 2nd TBS Discovery Pro build Gallery 6. July, 2014 crashpilot 2 Comments The 2nd TBS Discovery Pro arrived in a similar, but slightly lighter colored box. The new gimbal dampener arrived with the wrong number of screws. I should have some spare ones left from the last build. My 2nd TBS Discovery Pro came with the new improved gimbal dampening arm attached to the back. It should stabilize the camera at high speeds. The new gimbal stabilizer will go deep into the frame, close the the NAZA in order to stabilize the camera rotational movements. In order to fit everything, the NAZA controller is placed slightly forward outside the marked rectangle. This way, the edge of the X8R is just short of to the mounting hole for the red spacers which will later connect to the top plate. The X8R antennas can be zip tied to the arms. Both, the antenna and the arms, have a rounded shape which makes the placement relatively flush and solid. The zip ties keep them in place, minor movement is still possible. Closeup of the X8R lying sideways inside the frame. Different angle of the frisky X8R placement inside the frame, flush to the NAZA. The X8R is placed lying on the side, with the short cables going out to the antennas on the two arms. On my 2nd build, I’ve placed the video transmitter on top. TBS sells a special mount, which is not part of the kit and needs to be ordered separate. Here I use a FLAME WHEEL VTX mount with a TBS 5.8GHz transmitter This time I’ve attached the NAZA LED IMU to the bottom of one of the ESCs. On my second build I try to cram the X8R receiver inside the frame, next to the NAZA with the two antennas on the back arms. The image gallery of the first build can be found here.

Great pictures, the placement of some of the components you arranged again will definitely help. Good luck !
