Freaky Phase angle on 450

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joly May 7, 2013. 17 Replies

My 450 has a wobble on the pitch axis, unless 42 degrees of H_PHANG is added. It appears as a rapid clockwise toiletbowl effect, which subsides as H_PHANG approaches 42 degrees. If H_PHANG exceeds 42…Continue

I got my APM last night, and I'm very impressed with this hardware as a whole. I did notice that there was a problem with the way the case looked. The case came cracked and the gap around the side of…Continue

Joly replied to Xin H's discussion DIrect motor drive fix pitch tail?
"Hey there, I did have a fixed pitch tail for a while, it performs very well indeed as long as you don't need to do 3D. I used a 20A ESC flashed with simonk, and a 1600kv 85W Outrunner. You don't need to spin it both ways, just one…"

"I agree with the OPs concern about safety, but in terns of privacy, how is this any different to being in any public place? There is CCTV everywhere. How do you know there aren't weirdos taking home CCTV footage of you?"

Joly commented on Robert Hoermann's blog post Soon availible... Redundancy for autopilots
"Thanks for the reply Robert. To be honest I'm not sold on the trade off between adding a redundancy for the most reliable part of the copter, for added complexity and additional points of failure."

Joly commented on Robert Hoermann's blog post Soon availible... Redundancy for autopilots
"All this is doing is moving the single point of failure from the autopilot to this new device. So when this new device fails, what then? How do you plan on merging the EKF estimates so that when it switches over you don't get a crazy jump?…"

"I get what you are saying but hear me out: If its a big drone you can't 3d print a replacement wing or elevon for it. If its anything like a spar or servo or motor you cant 3d print it. If its small you could carry 4 of each foam part and…"

Joly commented on Thomas J Coyle III's blog post Now this exists: A 3-D-printed drone
"With the materials we currently print with, it is cheap - a few cents per print actually. I have a 3d printer and would never waste my time 3d printing a plane when I have the option to use foam. Currently, foam is far stronger, more impact…"

Joly commented on Thomas J Coyle III's blog post Now this exists: A 3-D-printed drone
"Another thing, how much of the drone has to be actually printed to make it qualify as a "3d printed drone"? I bet the batteries, motor, wiring, servos, autopilot, or spars were not 3d printed. So that leaves the wing. Does that mean I can…"
