The cloned drone Dilemma

346 viewsAdvanced topicstuning

Hello, I have built 2 almost identical quads that fly very differently. Here is a breakdown of the builds:

Quad 1:                                      Quad 2:

Frame:     Reverb 5”                                  Iflight XL-5 V4

Motors:    Flywoo NIN 2306.5 v2                 Flywoo NIN 2306.5 v2

ESC:        Iflight Bl Heli-S (JESC)                Iflight Bl Heli-S (JESC)

FC:          Iflight Succex F405                     Iflight Succex F405

Camera:  Runcam Eagle 2 Pro                    Foxeer Razer Mini

VTX:        Holybro Atlatl                             Holybro Atlatl

RX:         R-XSR                                        R-XSR

Props:     HQ-Prop v2s                              HQ-Prop v2s

TOW:      710g                                         700g

They both have a capacitor of the same rating, both have a lens of the same FOV, both bonded on the same RX#, built in the exact same way. They both run the same version of Betalight. Quad #1 has been tuned to perfection and Quad #2 was cloned using the cli function; (#Diff all & #dump).

Quad #1 feels perfect and Quad #2 feels as if the idle is too low (wobbles when throttle is relaxed). it also feels as if it is more affected by gravity (Less Floaty?). I am using dynamic idle on both quads. all values are the same.

I am at a loss, is there factors that could affect flight performance that have not been mentioned in this thread that I could have missed? It is very bizarre to me. seems like the physical difference between each quad should not be affecting the flight performance in the way that it does.

Man, Check the wobbly drone for breaks/ flexibility in the arms. It could be anything, unbalanced props, loose FC, Broken Carbon, Different Gyros,
