MUGEN Mk II (the evolution of our first arducopter & the design of a robust landing gear!)


 Our first version of the arducopter has evolved and "MUGEN Mk II" now has some quite robust (although heavy) landing gear!


I've set up some pages to share some details about both versions: here for the first version, and here for MUGEN Mk II.

This includes the blueprints for the custom laser cut parts, some photos, and a power benchmark for the jDrones motors, ESC and props along with the different Lipo I had in stock:

We made some videos too!

Here is a first video (in french only, sorry!) to introduce our quadcopter:

And here's another one showing MUGEN Mk II flying in the french Alps!


Have fun! (^_^)

Génial ce quad. Et le ammortos, une idée de génie! 

Awesome quad, and the shock absorbers are brilliant.!

really cool.. where can I get landing gear like that??

You can build them yourself ? You can have the parts cut at a laser shop using the blueprints given here (I used 2mm acetal sheets). I guess that the rest (RC car shock absorbers, RC plane foam wheels, 3mm nuts & bolts) could be found at any decent RC shop ?

Yes, that would be a good improvement!

But I don't know where to find a light/small/plastic version of such type of wheels ?
