Vibration Mitigation Blocks- VMB1

Vibration is the bane of multirotors, and needed something that I could produce very inexpensively in small quantities for quadcopter builds and other robotic applications. This is what I came up with that I could cut on demand on the waterjet.

I have used zip ties, nylon screws and traditional bolts with nylock nuts to secure them in a frame, and were very impressed with the operation, if…

New quadcopter frame - custom design

I finalized a new layout of my drone design. It now includes a top and bottom plate, a canopy to protect the autopilot and a platform for a GPS (if needed). It also includes legs to be attached to the current 3DR arms.

In detail, the bottom plate includes 3M hole pinouts for the old and new arducopter power…

The Raspberry Fly

Finally got around to building my first quadcopter after talking about it for way to long. Great experience, but of course it did take a lot of online research to gather all the necessary bits of information. I decided to collect that information on my website in the hopes that other budding UAV enthusiast could…

PRE-Flight RC Simulator Drone Edition

It is my pleasure to present the PRE-Flight RC Simulator Drone Edition.
 
In my experience, 50% of beginners totally destroy their RC aircraft in the first week. About 25% destroy them in their first flight. This is a costly exercise, as the typical FPV-capable drone start at around $400 and may…

First Chocolate Quadcopter ;-)

My girlfriend loves baking and chocolate and I love building and flying quadcopters. That probably makes us the perfect couple fulfilling all gender specific clichés ;-) Anyway, she came up with the idea to build a chocolate copter. I was skeptical at first. Chocolate is not as stable as aluminum or carbon - which are typically used for copter frames. Nor is it heat-resistant. As…

Anti-Jello Camera Mount Test And Vertical Acceleration Test

This is only the 4th or 5th flight since installing my new carbon fiber props from Hobby King and I have to say, between that and my DIY wire rope "jello killer" camera mount, the video is looking pretty good. Especially considering I don't have a gimbal.

Anyway, I was…
