Hey everyone! In case you haven't been following us on our website or here on DIY Drones, we are two guys who have been tinkering with gimbal design and other aerial photography related projects. Over the last few months we've been developing a brushless gimbal and we're almost ready to make it a deliverable item. We have aspirations to turn our tinkering habit into a business, but we're quite new to the scene, and we are experimenting in that regard. Special thanks go out to all of you who have encouraged us with comments and emails! We appreciate it!
Today we would like to introduce you to our first official product, our 9 Inch High Rise Multicopter Legs. By selling these legs we hope to...
- Develop our order fulfillment and customer service process with a simpler product.
- Raise some funding to support our current and future projects.
The kit contains 4 Garolite leg parts which make one pair of legs. The legs have been pre-drilled to work with 3DR ArduCopter arms but they can be easily modified to work with other kits. All required hardware and fasteners are included.
We are listing the legs at $17.50 which is currently cheaper than 3DR's "long leg set." These legs are also around 3 inches longer than those available from 3DR.
We've been using these legs for our project for months now and we're happy to tell you that they are quite strong. They've survived many hard landings (some while carrying payloads up to two pounds) and if they can survive our terrible piloting they can survive a lot! They are available for purchase now on our products page.
In other news, as we mentioned above we are nearing the final stages of our gimbal development project. We've recently tested it and the resulting footage was excellent (videos coming soon). We just need to make a few more modifications before we can begin pre-orders.
We also have a new and exciting project in the works! More info on that coming soon.
If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks to the community for providing encouragement and useful knowledge. Cheers!
Jeff and David
