Puffin 210 RE – The upgrade for the Puffin 210 frame

My friend ReadyEdi from Multirotor4fly came up with an awesome (!!!) upgrade for the already great Puffin 210. The upgrade allows to mount the battery in the frame, between the motors – at the center of gravity, instead of on top of the frame.

Mounting the Battery in the frame leaves the top plate free for an HD camera to be mounted. the Foxeer Legend 1 will fit here perfectly due to it’s size.

The battery strap holds the battery in place and keeps the balancing port in a safe place. The battery in the picture is a Tattu 4s 1800man 45C. The 1300mah, and 1400mah will fit as well.

The bottom compartment holds the Naze32 and PDB safely and allows of mounting the XT60 in the bottom, very neatly!

The XT60 connector is hiding at the bottom of the frame allowing an easy and quick battery connection and keeps the battery cable from touching the props.

This upgrade also keeps your battery when crashing. We all know how painful it is to walk to your miniquad after a crash only to discover your battery lost it’s shape of a prop introduced a deep cut into the cells.

Further more, the days of looking for your battery (and miniquad) in the field are over. It will no longer disconnect in crashes and will allow to use the beeper to find it.

The final weight of the Puffin 210 RE is 340g (Excluding battery and HD camera), with DYS XM20A ESC’s and Cobra 2204 2300kv motors. For FPV i chose the Foxeer XAT600M camera and the 25MW Foxeer Transmitter from Surveilzone. I was very surprised with the quality of the video from this little transmitter!
