Hey guys,two questions on this topic:1.I just would like to know if anyone is using, or knows how to use, the ardupilot Mega 2.5 to just stabilize a quad copter so that i can drive it while the…Continue

"Im interested myself in eventually building a quad or hex capable of lifting 50lb payloads. I realize thrust per prop depends on it being a quad or hex. Lets say I went the hex route, 6 motor/props with a 50lb payload. What would a copter capable of…"

"Hello Harry, yes, currently we work on an variable pitch quadrocopters But we are still working on it (it fly's since ~ two weekends :)) Under the video on youtube, you find some data about the model. Best Regards Askan"

"Hi Harry, I've been following this along and I was wondering what it was you were aiming to lift with the beast of a Multi Copter you are building?  Are you going to be lifting and placing breeze blocks or timber for the construction…"

"The frame was a custom cut carbon fiber foam core.  The variable pitch system I believe is posted somewhere in this forum but I can find it if you need it.  The motor in the middle is difficult. They tried that paired with trex 450 tail…"

"Mike, The project looks very interesting. What was the frame based off of? I wanted to try and replicate this project for myself and it would be nice to use all the same parts. My intent is to do something slightly different though and use only one…"

"Vibration is the unfortunate bane of every lifting airscrew.  I know some engineers invest virtually their entire careers in this field on full-scale single-rotor choppers. Which brings me to my next point about variable vs. fixed pitch -…"

"Harry,  In terms of flight planner and code, I believe that the quad was using this board with 'custom' code on it. One thing you have to remember is that it was flown indoors using a VICON system for position and velocity data.…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a current naval architecture student at the Australian Maritime college of tasmania, Australia. Studying to specialise in defence applications.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am extremely interested in quadcopters and some new applications for them. I am looking at creating a heavy lift quad-copter that can engage an extra 2 ducted fan jets when required to lift weight, to carry a automated submarine that myself and colleges have designed and built. I have access to 3D printers and all electronics, In real need of assistance with coding mainly.
