Hi,I have my QuadCopter built. I am using the Propeller microprocessor (I built my own pcbs) to control this. I intend using a Wii gyro (from a Wii motion plus), but currently I have no feedback…Continue
"@Don - You don't need counter rotating props to control yaw. I flew a quads plenty with all props in the same direction. It's just not the most efficient way to go about it.
@Ray - Yes, you can just angle 2 opposing…"
I do know some have tilted the rear about 15 deg and have it working. I am ultimately interested to see if I can get the PID fast enough to counter the centrifical force by micro control, permitting the quad to rotate like a flying…"
"The counter rotating props are required on a quad not only to counter the engine torque but also allow you to yaw/turn the copter as well. You could manually rotate one or all of them enough to counter torque but you will not be able to…"
Hi,I have my QuadCopter built. I am using the Propeller microprocessor (I built my own pcbs) to control this. I intend using a Wii gyro (from a Wii motion plus), but currently I have no feedback connected.Currently I have all propellers rotating in the same direction. I have counter-rotating ones on order. I can get off the ground and my quad rotates as expected.However, I was thinking that rather than angle just the rear motor (in a "+" configuration) about 15 deg, would angling all motors…See More
"Jani: My interest is in using the prop chip so I will be doing that. I have the latest ITG3200 gyro chips from invensense. Our code will be over on the Parallax forums.
However, I am interested in what others are doing, particularly the airframe.…"
"Shouldn't the Quadcopter hardware be decoupled from the electronics to make a better set of alternatives?
i.e. An airframe kit with motor/esc/propellor ?
I am developing my own electronics based on a Parallax Propeller chip (a 32bit 8 core…"
