Hi all,

I posted here a while back about my Quad frame and thought it would be a good idea to post a quick update.....

For those that missed the first post this is a Quadcopter frame in the Spider style but the difference being that the bottom plate has a Dirty/clean setup ( The FC, Gimball and battery are on the clean section) , this means that the effects of vibrations are greatly reduced.

I have decided to make the Explorer4 Quadcopter Open source, I have been getting lots of great sugestions but dont have the time to impliment and test them all.

I have put links on the website to Github where you can download the drawing files and cut one for yourself. There is also alot of Info that I have added over the past few months, Including a build guide with videos and a parts list with links.

Luke,
Do you suppose, due to less vibration, the Explorer 4 could be utilized for vertical image capture for photogrammetric applications? I will definitely explore this UAV.
Thanks,
William

There is no reason for not to be used for something like that. Allthough it is designed for a gopro gimbal, there is nothing stopping you downloading the drawing and modifing the front part slightly for a Fixed vertical camera.

I know people are using it to make similar images but using the gopro 3.
