Hi, when i fly multirotors one of my main worries is to avoid it from crashing. Mechanically I've practically…Continue
Testing the octo without 1 of the top motors and then 1 of them bottom motors to check what's happens if a prop/motor/esc gets bad during flight.
Previously I've done the same test with a flat hexacopter and an Y6 but they didn't performed very well.
With a flat octocopter, if it looses 1 motor/esc/prop it's barely affected. I was…Continue
2nd test with the gimbal: 2 axis, pitch and roll stabilized by a homemade mechanical gyroscope. Using a GoPro
In this second test, I added another joint so it can move freely in 2 axis as seen in the beginning of the vídeo. The performance was nice although i performed some very aggressive movements.
PS: i didn't use any bearing in joints,…Continue
Using a homemade mechanical gyroscope, i created a gimbal to stabilize my GoPro camera.
In this first test, my gimbal has just one axis (pitch) so if i change the roll angle it will happen the gyro precession (it will not stabilize correctly). Precession is what happens when a spintop is desacelerating and doesn't stay in the…
