"Always enjoy your posts, videos and DIY ethos. In addition to decoupling the camera from the frame via zip ties, I've found that using some surgical tubing as a buffer medium works well in combination. Although it's a little difficult to…"
"Very nice! Would enjoy seeing some video of that flying. I'm guessing it flies like a banshee. Like that you leveraged the stiffness of the rim and went with the parallel center supports. Do you notice in differences in flight characteristics…"
"Very cool. It seems like the props are now the weak link in the design with respect to "damage". It would be interesting to see a G.o.D. design with propeller protectors. Keep up the great work!
"That's awesome. Curves rule. Can't wait to see it flying. A sub-group devoted ring/hoop builders might be interesting. I've seen a handful of other folks starting to work in a "non-linear" fashion with respect their…"
"Rings/hoops make for stable flight characteristics for many reasons. It's great to see folks experimenting and having success. I've been making hoop based multirotors the last couple of years and have never looked back. I even started…"
I too felt the need to measure/profile vibration as well as magnetic flux related characteristics of motors, etc... I wanted to leverage "off-the-shelf" flight controllers without modifying the flight controller software. That…"
"thanks for the writeup. I wrote up my notes for scripting the Raspberry Pi to boot into timelapse mode here. Here's the image processed in NGB (Near infrared, Blue, Green) and NDVI through Infragram.org:
"This isn't a problem for me, I removed several IR filters ;-). My suggestion is remove the other filter called Bayer, this bayer filter divide the visible spectrum on three primary colors (RGB), I'd like have a monocromatic camera without…"
