Hi there,I am a new user of the ardupilot 2.6 (ArduCopter V3.0.1, using it on a 10" quadrotor), but I have a lot of experience with my own flight controller system. I like the automatic flight capabilities of ardupilot a lot, and I had about 6 very…
"Thanks for your positive feedback :-D.
If you ever sell the frame let us know I would be interested
I am in the discussion with someone to make this frame available as a kit. But in a slightly larger version, because that will be much easier to…"
A video of the Shrediquette GEMiNi:Hi everyone! I just posted this already in the internet somewhere else, but I think it might be worth a blog-post on DIYdrones as well, as it contains some information on motors / propellers / aerodynamics that…
Remember the video "A nice place to fly - Hexacopter in Cameroon / Africa" ? Two years later, it is now available as a director's cut with more than twice the length of the original movie, showing some additional scenes and longer…
I also have a Y6 with a thrust to lift ratio of about 2. When one of the upper propellers is missing, I can still fly almost without problems. But when one of the lower propellers is missing, I crash...
Successful hover with upper prop…"
"Where do you buy those I²C->PWM micro converters ?
I developed them myself and I still have some PCBs here.
why not the 3 of each side in the same direction and both side in opposite direction?
well i think that would also work fine. Every…"
"Would a two blade not be more efficient?
Yes it would be more efficient I think, but I don't know of any 2-blade props (CW+CCW) that would fit my motors.
Looking forward to see the next good copter and movie - until then you have a small gift in a…"
"Do you have any kind of active altitude feedback?
No, at the moment that is just the ground effect, which is very prominent for this type of copter. But I am working on a five IR distance sensors that hopefully stabilize the position of the copter…"
"What are the benefits of the 6-motor 'tri copter?'
Well, you can use smaller props on more motors to get a similar amount of lift. So the overall size decreases, but you still have enough power to carry cameras, sensors etc. And this layout is also…"
