Balancing act this is the coolest thing I have seen in a while.
That's cool. You could probably do the same thing with a unicycle.
Wonder how an APM 2.5 with 2.8.1 would perform "out of the box" (with minimal pid adjusted for small frame)...
this is nicely done to "pre test" before actual flights.. anyone wants to design a bigger platform and limit the code so the copter can only bounce and not lift off? this would save a lot of beginner crashes while having fun.
But this needs a prop bumper as it seems quite dangerous rolling around!
Very nicely done!
Very cool put me in mind of this, not so much balancing involved.
very cool, now think of a real bike, but 4 big motors and props, it doesn't need to take of fully, just reduce the weight by half and you could do awesome jumps.
Not to say it's not impressive, but the bike actually balances itself, at the end without any props running.
Ellison, most planes balance themselves out as well. I think the tricky part is stabilizing them when they are not in their stable state. In this case the transition from self stabilizing because of its wide wheels and the state where it would top over if no AP/props were used.
But i agree, the turns and balancing the tube are more impressive than straight forward driving.
Great idea and video over-all! I am thinking of building one myself as a (simple) example of tuning for others.
Now that gives really a new meaning for word Hoverbike :)
That KK2.0 is nice board, R.B. has done good job with it.
The KK2.0 is hard coded in assembler ..... R E S P E C T.
