Any difference in ability to remain stable in strong, uneven wind ?
Well, this is kind of an old thread, but since none of the questions were never really answered, I don't think the admins will mind.
To answer your questions, I'd say that having more surface will affect positively the stability, so I guess radials are more stable. But dont really listen to me.
In the end, this toys are really unstable by nature, so what you really need is a good software to handle external fluctuations
Did you guys see the Small Girl Flies form Octocopter video ? Crazy http://youtu.be/6c1lzXBMcxM
I would like to propose a couple of additional items.
1. Naming of drone types.
2. A thread should be started to catalogue the components people use to help other understand what components are available and allow the community to comment on component level features from items they fly.
@ Neil: Your innitiative is great, and I think it shoudl be done.
But the point about this thread (which is already some years old) was to ask the differences betwen the most common multi-copter configurations. Which is the most stable, which has the greates lift-power to power consumption ratio and thinks like that under the same conditions. But those question never gor really answered.
I wasnt doing a clasification back then (maybe my post was wrong interpreted). I was doing a question because I couldnt find any satisfactory info on the net. The shame is I still dont have those points really clear :S
Yeah totally understand, Honestly was just doing some reading and saw this, thought you had a great idea/request and wanted to expand to see if there was any interest. I didn't notice at the time how old the thread was!
Thanks for the response, I may work on putting together a document that would help answer your questions for all the other that have them/will have them.
That would be simply awesome. I really encourage you to continue :)
Please, if you get to write that document, let me know it. Im really interested ;)
