The German effects studio OMStudios must really trust their custom RC Octocopter--the super high-def RED camera they're lifting costs $40,0000.
This type of airframe creates low pressure above and higher pressure below.
The high mass beam floats on about 2" of open cell foam rubber. This isolates the mount from vibration and also provides an important base that will not move as a result of opposite reaction from the mount servos.
@Denny what props are you using and what is the M2M distance?
37 " Some things are changed since that picture. Battery is now one single 5800 ma. and further back. props. are now 13.5 x3.5 carbon and they are swept forward. Would be too dangerous outside of those shrouds .Weight is now closer to 5 Kilos depending on ancillaries. My multipilot 32 system was a lot heavier than the DJI.
A good prop. is the 14x4 xoar wood.
Although I am now using DJI I must say that AC 2.0.x is fast becoming a real player in the heavy lift AP stakes and I have set aside a machine just for the purpose of testing each and every release as it comes along.
In the 8 months since I bought my AC2, the updates that the community, and especially Jason Short, Michael Oborne, and the rest of the core team etc have uploaded, have taken this craft from a skitterish novelty item, to a comparatively smooth, reliable platform. I wouldn't of mounted my GoPro HD on it if I thought it would let me down. Mikrocopter make some very flash kit, but at five times the price. In addition, the MK flies out of the box, which might suit a customer who needs it to just work, but the AC project gives everybody the opportunity to participate in it's developement, something which has provided me, and thousands of others, with hundreds of hours of imaginative entertainment. Keep up the fantastic work y'all!
@Owen, Well said , couldn't express it better.
Good luck for all.
@Owen , as Fouad said, couldn't have said it better either
i'll just add that with that circle nose in mode, AND that latest entry in the feature request about flight reflight with cam position replay and i am sure Ardu will definitely have its place if not the first place in videographer's favourite s
So keep up the good job dear devs , and gogogo everyone, bring up your thoughts and experience, its something we all will mutualy benefit from
I believe the pressure sensor in the Wookong M is the same as in MK, both deliver outstanding alt. hold but Wookong is unbelievably good. I think we need one of those.
