"From a practical standpoint, there's minimal difference between a 10x4.7 and a 10x4.5. According to ecalc, the higher pitch would increase the power per motor by a whopping three watts.
Going the other direction, reducing the pitch from 4.7…"
"Probably for weight/lift reasons. With a 1045/1047 you get more lift. I have got so used to 1045 that I would be worried to use 1038 as my mind is calibrated to the weight/lift ratio. I am usually flying around with a semi heavy gimbal and camera +…"
That video was indeed professional. No wonder, working with quadcopters is his daily bread.
If you look a bit more closely in that video, it says 10x38 are better for multicopter as they provide less torque. I still am unable to understand the…"
From what I understand from this discussion:
1) A 10x4.7" prop would draw more current than a 10x3.8" prop, everything else remaining the same. The 10x3.8" would sweep less air under it and use less current for the…"
"yeah its very interesting, I would guess its much like my project with the exception of the screen & keypad for settings being added, where mine is done using they joystick only
I'm not sure what chip they use for the controller atmel…"
"Thanks people, I will first try a FrSky FF-1 TX/RX set to control the quad by iPhone/iPod through the iPhly and if that doesn't work I'll start looking into the many other great suggestions people have made. This seems however the most…"
"No man, the best props I have EVER used are the carbon reinforced GemFam that were easy to find at one time, but not as much any more.But now Amazon sells them. You have to buy 2 packs.1 4 pack of Cw HERE, And one matching set of 4 CCW props…"
"@Charles: thanks for the link... that Forcefly system looks great. We do a lot of haptics research here at Deakin (not me personally) and we have other "commercial level" haptic devices, but that looks like a great, low-price,…"
"I too was going to recommend the 3DConnexion products... I use them as robot controllers and implemented a test bed about 2 years ago for controlling a full dynamical simulation of a quad-rotor using both the Space Navigator and SpaceMouse Pro.…"
