It is my first drone
Motor to motor distance : 140 cm
Rotor diameter:70 cm
Maximum size:210 cm
Weight: 1.6 kg ( esc, motors and wires) without batteries
White gears are from HK450 class helicopter with one way bearing for autorotation
Tested in the house tied to that piece couch. At full thrust it tried to lift the couch which has over 14 kg
I tried to use Arduino to level the drone but using just the accelerometer is quite hard. I'm trying now using accelerometer wii motion plus gyro combo
I filtered the data from the accelerometer using a simple low pass filter. I'm currently trying to understand Kalman filter.
I tested it outside but it failed to level the drone and have a little crash. The damage was only visible on the pipes. So I bought a new set
Is the accelerometer sufficient for the job?
I also bought a lot of sensors (sonar, barometric sensor with 9 cm resolution, gps, magnetometer 1 axis, gyro, and KKcopter controller board to replace my arduino)
