Thought I would share the progress on our quadrotor, we have done the PID tuning but have noticed in the test rig that it tends to 'rock' to the same side in both pitching and rolling from a straight and level position. We think we can put this down to the way the quad sits in the test rig. Next we look at doing a flight test once we receive our new engine mounts.
For those interested ther engine mounts and baseplate were constructed using a rapid prototyper and are made out of ABS plastic which is quite strong.
RP the components was possible due to manipulating the university's resources to our advantage ;)
I would have to agree with the prop tips, wouldn't a more vivid colour do a better job?
RP on the legs and motor mounts! That’s expensive! Our machine when it works ;) cost a boat load to run....
Great simple design! Nice work! Hope your buddy is alright! Are you using a grub or set screw to lock them on the booms?
