Has anyone (or better, who has) done an ArduPilot conversion for an old DraganFlyer V? I have one - flies like crap because it's got brush motors and old electronics - the frame is pretty solid…Continue
"I just tried the draganflyer airframe with the APM2this afternoon. It flies well with the default parameters, it does not oscilllate but it responds maybe a little bit agressively. I will try reduce the Rate Roll P a little to see how it goes.
"I had started to convert my draganflyer for brushless operation a couple of years ago but I did not finish it.
I was using brushless motors that almost fit as a direct replacement for the brushed ones. The positive side is that it was an easy…"
"That's fantastic. I'm not sure which motors to use - and when I decide, I'm going to make mounts
on my makerbot for each of them. Perhaps we can make a deal - I make you motor mounts and you make me the…"
I am also converting a draganflyer using brushless motors and the APM2. I will post images as my project progresses.
Here is the plan in dxf of the replacement plate I am using to replace the original draganflyer board
Has anyone (or better, who has) done an ArduPilot conversion for an old DraganFlyer V? I have one - flies like crap because it's got brush motors and old electronics - the frame is pretty solid though, so, I want to make it useful.Any feedback/suggestions would be great. I have a Makerbot and was thinking about whipping up some ArduPilot mounting brackets if it hasn't already been done.Thoughts?CheersBillSee More
