 Question - How do I increase the Roll & Flip rate to spin much faster ?  Answer = OK cool - so you are ready to do fast rolls and flips - go to BetaFlight/CleanFlight/iNav (CHROME) UI and connect - then click on the "Receiver" tab ; on the right side RC Rate - change it from 0.6 up to 1.0 then click SAVE at the bottom ; then click on the PID Tuning tab ; look on the top right,  ROLL rate increase to 1.0 ; PITCH Rate increase to 1.0 - YAW Rate increase to 1.0  -   press SAVE at the bottom - done    Make sure you have around 65% Expo on your RC Transmitter(Tx)

Safety & Risk

 

  • Always wear full eye protection and ensure others around you are eye - protected
  • Remain 30m from other persons 
  • Risk - Pilots assume responsibility of Risk in relation to their kit build, battery charging and air operation and any associated equipment fitted at your own risk - pilots must read the risk SMS page HERE

Question - my Knife 200 ESCs won't spin after being armed?  Answer = The Knife 200 ESCs are coded for MultiShot (Star Wars tones) - so you must SET MultiShot in the UI config window and save.

  1. This 200 kit has it all!

    Posted by Charles on 15th Jul 2016

    The Scarab Knife 200 comes in a kit form and requires some level of multirotor knowledge and soldering skills to assemble. Building the Knife 200 is a very rewarding challenge. Great online instructions and a pool of help via Multiwiicopter Facebook page for the Knife construction. Once built just map the channels for the radio you choose via a computer (easy to do). The best part of the Knife 200 is you don’t have to have special computer programming skills to set it up. Multiwiicopter have done all the programming for you. I Simply charged the batteries to fly. For the tech heads who love to crunch code, the ever evolving software means you can always be up to date with the cool kids and latest trends in flight controller and ESC technology.
    This is an excellent kit build and the Knife 200 is awesome to fly. The Knife 200 has so much to offer every one of all skill levels. I have found the Knife 200 to be very capable and will be my "fun" choice for a very long time.


  2. Great fun to fly and learn

    Posted by Stephen Clark on 6th Jul 2016

    This is only my 2nd Mini quad ever and being very steady to fly makes it a good mini to learn on.
    It is also quite robust and despite all the abuse I gave it... ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s25w0ZpzYmo ) only required the occasional minor repairs.
    If flying through the bush I would highly recommend these bullnose props as they are much tougher and harder to break.... http://www.multiwiicopter.com/products/dalprop-4x4-5-cw-ccw-0445-props-red


  3. Performance on tap

    Posted by Damien Pitt on 15th Feb 2016

    The Knife 200 is my 4th Scarab frame (along with my Reconn V3, Avatar, Knife 270) so there must be an obvious explanation for my continually coming back; it just works.

    Rather than picking and choosing different components trying to find the right combination that will fit the frame and give you solid performance, it's all done for you so you know when you've completed your build you can expect you're quad to perform with absolutely minimal fuss; stable, responsive and extremely well balanced.

    The Knife 200 is easily the smallest Scarab to date, making even the 270 seem a moderate size. Make no mistake about the 200; it is very much geared toward being an FPV racer. The 270 is just big enough to give you decent orientation flying line of sight and choosing a 3S battery to dull it down might make it a bit more newcomer friendly; the 200 is an out and out FPV racer, the 45 degree camera tilt should give you plenty indication this frame was made for fast aggressive FPV flight and the high KV motors on 4S allow the 200 to punch itself forward with extreme urgency and react to attitude changes with a level of immediacy that demands the utmost focus from the pilot. Everything about the way the 200 flies is aggressively responsive but with a crispness and poise that is massively rewarding as the pilot.

    Being the smallest Scarab in the fleet it also is the first that really requires you direct solder all components. Personally, I prefer it this way as it allows for a really neat, clean install where you can trim wires to run only the length you need rather than trying to find ways of routing them about the frame or hide the excess but if you have never soldered before or are not comfortable with it you might want to get some practice in. There's nothing unnecessarily difficult to solder here but soldering does take a certain knack you acquire over time and it's certainly made a lot easier with a decent soldering iron. Get it down though and you'll find the new Andromeda is an awesome little bit of kit; it's well protected within spines of the frame and makes life so much easier when routing wires and powering all necessary components. I'm a huge fan of this Andromeda and the elimination of excess connectors.

    There's not too much else to add; it's a well designed piece of kit, solid (I've already had the accidents to verify this, never by choice but hey, gotta learn somehow), good looking and the supplied components all work harmoniously to create a superb little quad with a performance ceiling (especially in my case right now) that exceeds current pilot skills; but at least you'll know as you improve, this little fella will have plenty more to give.
