    Tarot Iron Man 1000 - New Build

    For a while I have been debating on moving to a bigger copter so I can have something to accommodate larger payloads and better cameras. I have been thinking about the CS6 and started looking up stuff, when I came across a post talking about this Tarot frame and saying it was a lot like a cs8 to a point of it being called a clone. Looking around on the net I was only finding the frame on sites out side the US. I'm very hesitant to buy something out side the state, Its just the way I am for some reason.

    A week later while on the web while just looking around I was on cnchelicopter.com site and found they had a whole slew of Tarot stuff, one of them being the 1000 frame. I ended up ordering it $429 ( over all I do not owe them anything - other then the I have bought a lot of stuff from them in the past and they have always been consistent).

    So looking it over and forming a game plan on how to build it I decided I would take pictures and start a post like I did on my past f550 conversion build.

    Going forward as I start to assemble the rig I will keep posting on how it's going. I am here to learn, listen, and answer questions if anyone's curious. Over all I do not have a lot of experience with frames of this size but I will say I believe this is the real deal, the CF is cut nice, the center hub come pretty put together, the motor clams are made of aluminum, and it seems to go together very easily. Over all my first impressions are good, I see a few things I may have to deal with going forward but for what I can see it should fine.

    my last note the frame is very solid, strong, and fairly light (should weigh in at 1.6kg). its big, and they are using 25mm tubing for the booms.

    cheers

    Here are some photos I took earlier of what comes with the kit, Ok I might have added the MN Tiger 4012 motor!!!

    Thanks Chris

    Shows you how much I know, I never even noticed the build section on the site, I guess as long as I have been coming here, I do not scroll down to often. A lot more lately though.

    Yes I start a build thread over the next week as I am starting to piece it together, I have everything I need for now except for the time.

    Cheers

    I made a login to add that I just bought my Tarot Iron Man 1000 frame and very much look forward to seeing the progress of your build as we do them together.

    Hi,

    very interresting frames from Tarot, we discuss this since a while in our european forum too, but only about the Iron Man 450.
    What do you think about the quality?
    Have you already finished to complete the copter?

    best, tom

    Hey Tom, I decided to buy the Arris M1000 instead. I wanted a frame that would support my DJI nazaM, and that's something that would not work on an octo. Cheers

    Answering some questions.




    Tom66


    Quality is good, assembly is very simple, and fast.
    Frame is super strong, if I take two side by side booms and hold it up to my chest and push to each other, I question if I can break or fracture them. I have done that test no with all my strength however plenty to make me satisfied.

    There is no vibration system with the frame, however I believe you could easily adapt a system of choice. Tarot has one coming out, or already out, which will fit with there Magic Rabbit Gimbal which is also coming out over the next few weeks.



    Also If you buy and Cinestar Octo Mount plate you can figure a way to attach it, with the CS vibration Dampers or you can go this route, SeaCraft Vibration mounts $10 each ( the photo is from from http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1842313&page=3)





    I have not finished yet, I am out of town this week for a photos in So FLA but will be back on the horse come Easter Day. I am hoping to see it do its first flight somewhere in the week on the other side of the holiday.

    Yes the whole thing is Carbon fiber, weights in a 1.6 kg, .3kg’s heavier then the CS8, I believe the plus .3 is coming from the boom motor mount which are made of aluminum, and when the tighten down the precision their design will not move in any way while not damaging the booms.
