"Maybe you should start a spread sheet with all the possibilities which come into your mind and all there limitations and dis/-advantages ans so on, if you haven't done it already. That might help you for your calculations: www.ecalc.ch I would…"

Armin Strobel replied to Javier Fernandez's discussion Talking spherical drones
"Let's think out of the box, since you have a "limitless" budget. If you want to keep the openings as small as possible then you need to increase the speed of the air. In that case your best bet is a little jet engine or rocket engine…"

Armin Strobel replied to Cromwell A's discussion Yawing Issue with EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) Octacopter/Multirotor/Drone/UAV Flight
"Yes, it could but in your case it doesn't. If it would the position control would correct in the wrong direction and would start to go in big circle (would cause most likely a crash)."

Armin Strobel replied to Cromwell A's discussion Yawing Issue with EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) Octacopter/Multirotor/Drone/UAV Flight
"That explains all. I assume the EDF you have are all turning in the same direction. I don't know your exact setup, thats why i am suggesting a more testing approach. I would put the trust to something like 20% and then turn the drone around the…"

Armin Strobel replied to Cromwell A's discussion Yawing Issue with EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) Octacopter/Multirotor/Drone/UAV Flight
"That is what I was expecting. I would say your compass / IMU is working fine. You have a problem of controllability. I would try to tilt your EDFs a bit more (which I assume you have already done a bit). Let me know If you don't understand what…"

"If you you switch into position hold, does he still rotate on the spot or does he go wild and flys big circles?"

Armin Strobel replied to Hans H.'s discussion Yaw Problem with my Quadplane VTOL
"There are many possible reasons but the two very common ones. One is that your motors axies are not absolute parallel. Any small tilt of any motor will introduce additional torque, which the other motors have compensate that. But if you tilt all of…"

A 3D printed ducted fan UAV prototype

Posted on May 25, 2015 at 1:00pm 15 Comments

Though Ducted Fans UAVs as of now are not very common, my personal opinion is that this will change in the future, since they have certain advantages over other concepts. Just one single engine is necessary which makes the use of internal combustion engine more viable than for multi-rotors. Also a transition into a very efficient horizontal flight is possible (with modifications).…

UAV swarm

Posted on March 30, 2013 at 5:42pm 5 Comments

I thought I would post some information about some research I have done.

This video shows a simulation of UAVs swarming with an advanced control algorithms.

Seven UAVs are shown, which find a source of fumes or aerosols by measuring the…
