I am a bit concerned about the energy spent and fuss about the Simple feature, so I will post my considerations, hoping it will help someone understand better this feature. The simple mode (feature)…Continue

"This is not the same as others I have seen with a slo blow fuse so the esc stops mid flight, taking off and flying around minus props is completely different to losing a prop mid flight.....cant wait till you try it!"

"hello 4xdrones. No not yet. I will shortly implement a function to switch off 1 or 2 motors in flight. This was just the first test. Just to be sure everything works as expected. "

"Wow 780g is amazingly light for a 10A. I was getting 2x 4.5A Nano-techs for about 460g. Its too bad because I need two to spread out the weight. Well at the price it compares to, I think I'll experiment with the Li-Ions."

"My X8 could get a little more weight loss, but I'm quite happy with it. It is very agile compared to radial 8, lighter because it has only 4 arms and you can use the same motor mount for both motors. Then, I am using DualSky 10Ah batteries,…"

"Yeah the APCs create too much prop wash, maybe it would be good for the top. But I would bet that your 13x8 is acting kinda like a turbo prop. Basically super charging the speed of the thrust instead of moving it at the same speed. I was going to…"

Testing X8 configuration without two propellers

Yesterday I had a few tests with our Tiger Shark in Octa Quad configuration.The tests were made to see how the copter would cope the loss of one or two propellers.http://youtu.be/Tc6N0DbBT7M Obviously the test was in a ideal condition where the propeller just loosens and falls off the Octo.The test was done by removing first 1 propeller, then two propellers spinning in opposite and same direction. Without 1 propeller the copter flew as it had all the…See More

FPV on holiday

Posted on June 25, 2012 at 8:29am 6 Comments

My wife was nice enough to let me bring my quad and FPV gear on vacation :)

This is the result.

http://youtu.be/pYzNKglo5os?hd=1

Had dozens flights using Multipilot32 with MPU6000 and latest ported Arducopter32 2.6 firmware.

Unfortunately the quad had some vibration problems and wind was always quite strong.

I think it's time to change motors and frame....

Had a lot of fun. This…
