I'm wanting to design a custom micro quad (well.. as small as possible to lug the following) that has a layout that fits the following nicely
- APM 2.x
- 3DR radio
- Video TX
I really like the spider quad style (I've got a TBS Discovery) and was thinking of building a smaller/simpler version out of plywood to try the concept with aluminium arms.
My question is... where should the centre of gravity be on a non-square quad? should it simply be at the middle point between the engines?
Has anyone else done something like this?
Attached a photo of the sort of layout I'm playing with.
