Hi DIYDrones Community! I am looking to put together a comprehensive post with links to all subject matter (starting with very Newbie all the ways to very technical). The idea is NOT to give the…Continue
Unfortunately, I don't have the answer for you. I also did not see very much interest at all in my post from the knowledgable individuals of the community. I am not the expert to do it all by…"
You are nearly addressing a question of mine. I am not an RC-anything expert. I am looking at integrating the ArduPilot into an existing multicopter frame, but the info on the power connections and requirements is a bit…"
"Thank you for the post! It is great to see the vision.
My vote for most needed: architecture, sensor items
Most awesome upgrade: RTOS and ARM - come on Arduino, baby!!!
Neatest cool feature: heavier camera integration (scripted and otherwise) -…"
"Bill: not sure how much falls in your "rc gear" or your background
You might add power distribution board and batteries, battery charger to your list.
Maybe camera gimbal, camera, sonar ... Laser beams, teleporter, time machine
"Thank you. This was helpful. I was trying to find the diameter of an octo power distribution board and you gave it to me. I am also trying to figure out what the minimum/normal/maximum diameter for an octo center plate would be for…"
"Thanks Ellison. I was not aware of that ESC discussion taking place within this thought process. It is hard for me to keep track of all the discussions that have taken place in each forum. I posted it because I think it is a…"
"Cool stuff. I think the multicopter world needs the entry level "addiction copter". While awesome, I don't think APM as FCB or many frames fill that piece. I think that is where people go after the addiction bug has bit. I think you…"
"As I was doing more research on this item, I noticed that a lot of esc run at 50hz. So, I think the next bump would be a consistent 50hz or 20 Ms. Going faster probably wouldn't see any benefit because the esc could be the bottleneck. Just…"
"@Robero -- Thank you for the video post. Looks pretty solid. What is the cubic cm volume of this entire design? What is the weight? I saw that the dimensions are about 12.6. Do you have the exact motor to motor spacing…"
"You will have less vibrations with your motor prop setup which is good for video and some other things ... But I have seen those wobbles before ... It could be the pilot or partly the setup. You might want to try smaller props and change the pitch…"
"@Michael -- Wow. That is fantastic. Even when I looked at the picture, I didn't realize that the whole thing was 3d printed. That is great. Are you using ABS or PLA or something else for material? I have not worked…"
"I was starting to draft designs for the whole thing but still undecided on where to send my files to get done and what rapid prototyping material/process (polyjet, etc.) to use. While I have some cool ideas on designs, I question the…"
Hi DIYDrones Community! I am looking to put together a comprehensive post with links to all subject matter (starting with very Newbie all the ways to very technical). The idea is NOT to give the answers in this post, but to link to great articles/books/websites/etc. There is great information out there, but people have very different varying degrees of knowledge and difficulty finding it. I think we need a one-stop-shop to get people going instead of relying on them to "Search". Maybe if…See More
