ZTW Black Widow 2204 2300KV Test result

Build Guide: “Black Widow” Spider Hexacopter featuring the ZTW Black Widow 2206 2200kv and the Super Simple Mini Spider Hex Frame from Polakium Engineering

I will be constructing a racing version (eventually fpv) of the Super Simple Mini Spider Hexacopter Pro frame from Polakium Engineering utilizing the ZTW Black Widow Series Motor/esc combo 2206 2200kv .

I looked for and studied a lot of different spider hexacopter frames for this build and decided to go with an all original design from Adam Polak.
His designs are super clean and efficient, this one weighs in at 145 grams.

Here’s a rendering of a completed build of the Super Simple Mini Spider-Hex Pro with complete with fpv equipment.


About the SS Hex Pro Frame

This 300mm, 145 gram mini multicopter frame is the culmination of the entire Super Simple series of 3D printed multicopter frames. It is designed to be minimal in complexity and suitable for FPV flying. Carefully designed and cast from a high-strength polyurethane resin, the SpiderHex PRO exhibits just enough flexibility to absorb common impacts, while providing convenient mounting options at a reduced weight. The two-part axial structure of the frame prevents side impact forces from shearing the arms off in a rolling crash. This frame is designed to support many standard flight controllers including 45x45mm (KK2, Crius, Megapirates, etc..) and 30x30mm (CC3D, Naze32, PX4, etc…).


repare Motor Servo Leads
***Special Note***- the removal of the plastic servo leads is intended to make for a cleaner build. The direct solder method saves for space and weight. After removing the plastic ends, I was forced to put them back on the wires because of a discrepancy in available FCs (2 of 3 FCs were not hooking up with the OP{en Pilot CC3D GCS configurator ) So to avoid any further possible build trouble with the FC of this build I put them back on. This will not have any effect on the build. Proceed to do this step either way you choose.
Leave them on for a quick change capability or take them off and direct solder for a cleaner build.

Take motors and prepare them for the build by removing each servo lead plastic end on the black and white “servo” wires, for this build they are not needed. If you examine the plastic ends , you will find they have a very small tab at each opening where the wires are held i to place. With an appropriate tool such as fine point tweezers, gently pry up the small tab enough to allow the wire to be pulled out of the plastic end.
We will be directly soldering these bare ends of the black and white servo leads to the CC3D Flight Control Board.
