HiCould very close placement affect each other to the point of causing interference or weakening the signal?flight rx antennae are quite close to the 600mw 5.8 video tx.  Most importantly could the…Continue

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

Yaw heading issue

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

"Interesting, I have been working on an underwater quadcopter myself. Message me if you would like to talk further. Anything is possible, don't give up. Nothing in the world of technology is a waste of time."

"Interestingly enough as you only need the odd low speed burst under water the motors seem to handle it fine. A good bit of water cooling obviously helps. I would still suggest getting the lowest RPM motors you can though that will still give you…"

PVC quadcopter

Built this for use as a practice craft in order to learn mode 2. Just completed my RPL course and the requirement is mode 2 for the checkout flight. Built using 22mm electrical pipe conduit fittings.

"cc3d rx socket gave me issues from the start, so I broke the socket off and soldered the wires directly.  Not an easy job by any means but it is now secure.  I then coated it with pratley steel epoxy.. good and solid."

"You wouldn't even need a wire. Bluetooth doesn't go very far under water but would be good enough to go through a plastic hull of a ROV...and have a receiver in side."

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 14 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 and since then only fly in this manner. 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.
