The GoPro® compatible connector attaches to the chassis with two bolts, it's easily replaceable if necessary.
Very Impressive! The camera mount looks very clean, durable, and properly designed. I'm currently getting my CAD Engineering Associates Degree and almost all my classes deal with 3D Printing, 3D Scanning, and 3D CAD Design. Almost all my school projects are going to be 3D designs that are compatible with 3DR Equipment so be on the lookout for tons of Podcasts and blogs relating to my school work. :)
Hope all is well,
Nice, I wonder how easy it would be to make the quad waterproof.
Thanks, Joshua J.
I can tell you exactly what that will entail ;-)
Extremely easy depending upon how you would like to do it. You could waterproof it with a secondary shell over the body of the quad. I assume if you glued down a really durable rubber trim piece to the bottom of the body you could use the pressure from the bolts to add enough suction between the top and bottom with the rubber in the middle to completely seal it. Also the antenna for the Telemetry would need to be closed off. Maybe a plastic casing similar to a plastic cigar case could be glued over it if you wanted the DIY approach.
J. Johnson, I was thinking more along the lines of silicone seals
Yeah silicone seals would definitely work. It would provide you with very nice suction and durability between the 2 separate body pieces to provide you with the necessary seal to keep out water. I would definitely take off the body pieces and test out the seals without any of the electronics, motors, etc in it. You could weigh out all the electronics and such that you removed and add the necessary weight back into the body using anything from golf balls to rocks lol.
You definitely would want to strap down whatever weight you add inside the body for testing because you don't want weight to be shifting around in the body during testing because it will throw off your results because the electronics and such won't be shifting around during flight.
I almost forgot the most important part! :) Stick a few pieces of paper inside the body with some ink lines drawn on them using permanent marker so that if any moisture or water gets inside it will get the paper wet and also the ink will smear on the paper so you have a secondary indicator to your results.
But where are the wires from the VTX go through the case? Or it is not implemented?
So wait... this isn't the gimbal I guess?
