Underwater Quadcopter

HiThis may sound crazy.  How about a quadcopter designed for underwater use.  Brushless motors operate perfectly well submerged and the rest can be waterproofed quite easily.  Idea being that one…Continue

HiI have been flying my DIY quadcopter for about 2 months now and although it is very stable, I have a small yaw issue.  For example, if I yaw clockwise the quad will yaw correctly to that point but…Continue

"Even if the motors didn't start counter-rotating, a lot of power would be needed to bring it back to a hover.  I certainly notice this with my racing quad, If I punch the throttle after a long free-fall, the voltage alarm sounds for a few…"

"I do this with my racing quad.  I send it up to around 100 meters, put it into a crazy spin, power off and let it free-fall for about 6 seconds (disarm is set to 10s plus) then power up 10 meters from the ground, it's a lot of fun.  I…"

CC3D mini tricopter.

Hi all.I just love building these flying machines.  Here is my latest, a mini tricopter using the CC3D board.I initially had an issue with the servos which would drift off center all the time.   I couldn't even get it off the ground without it going into a wild spin, servo would just kick left or right.   Researching this, I found that it could be a reversal issue, either in the software or the tx, or both, but this did not solve the tail wagging problem.  This no doubt will help a lot of…See More

About Me:
Not much really.. I have a passion for things RC related amongst other things.

my youtube channel may divulge a bit more as to what I do.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Been flying RC planes for 10 years now, decided to move onto quadcopters in 2011 and have since built 25 copters of various sizes using various flight controllers. I build from the ground up slowly making improvements here and there with each new build. Started with FPV in 2012. Preferred frequency is 5.8 since it doesn't clash with 2.4 radio link. Luckily I've had few mishaps of which all were pilot error. I believe that spending time on the build paying attention to solder joints and other details are key to a smooth flying machine. In 2015, completed my RPL, (remote pilots license) in Joburg, with the purpose of going commercial.
