Here's a better photo showing the tail boom linkage - basically a pair of printed gears.
This design has fewer parts than a conventional linkage, less things to break so hopefully more reliable.
There's a 2:1 gearing ratio between the servo and the tail boom. The servo moves +/- 60…Continue

When we got started ten years ago, the annual AUVSI student drone competition was dominated by commercial autopilots, such as Piccolo. Now it's almost entirely open source autopilots, led by ArduPilot (14 of top 20) and Dronecode/PX4 (3 of top twenty). I'm super proud of this having co-founded…Continue
The distance between motors is 450mm so obviously the arms need to be cut down.
A PixFalcon goes on top, the GPS/Compass module will either go directly on top of the PixFalcon or have its own mount at the front of the drone.
Before choosing the best esc for quadcopter or FPV, you should know some ESC knowledges (Type, Firmware and Key parameters) as below.
A Brushed Motor has a rotating set of wound wire coils which acts as an electromagnet with two poles.
A Brushless Motor uses a permanent…Continue
Printing almost complete 13 hours later.
Not sure about the 'lurid purple' colour, for some reason it was the only filament left at the shop.
