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

Oliver Wetmore replied to Charles Linquist's discussion Intentionally shutting off motors in mid-flight then recovery
"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…"

Oliver Wetmore replied to Charles Linquist's discussion Intentionally shutting off motors in mid-flight then recovery
"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…"

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.
