I currently have a pedestal setup that's proven to be more of a headache than I previously thought.
The problem I have with it is that the pivot point is always going to be below the center of mass, unless I stick on a couple of counter masses.
As some of you may already know, my pet project for the past couple of months has been what I call the AirDragon, a quadrotor UAV that will eventually be a fully automous robot.
The original specifications for the senior design called for
Since there isn't one up already, I decided make a thread here with some tips and suggestions that I come across when building a custom quadrotor from scratch.
Anyone else who has a few tips or suggestions to building custom quadrotors, feel free to
I remember reading about vortices somewhere awhile ago, and about they can sometimes improve the air flow and thus also improve thrust, stability, quiet flight, etc.
I noticed that a majority of the Quad's and multirotors have the booms (the arms tha
Just wondering what it would take to make a aerial drone (planes, helicopters, quads, etc.) be able to go underwater?
Granted, all of the electronics must be waterproofed, but what about the motors and propellors?
BLDC motors have the advantage over

This discussion goes over the various tips I've picked up going over tuning PID and FLC (fuzzy logic) controllers for a quadrotor device.
Regardless of which type of contro
