Japan's Ministry of Defense released 2 days ago their spherical drone: 350 grams, 8 minutes fly time.
Pretty impressive. Drawing board anyone?
Omg, this thing it's beautifull
I had a crack at that not such a good job mind
I have made a post about it a while ago: http://www.diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/the-flying-ball
IKE, your video is no more available :)
Can't wait for the world's 1st flying octogon to be released again.
you could build a small spherical frame and then put the control system out of the new horizon hobby umx hyper taxi, this new system fly's just like this sphere, but looks like a pyramid http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=EFLU4780 i have seen videos of it fly it does all the same stuff as this thing can and probably more it has a new flight stabilizing system called AS3X and its only 168.00$
just a thought on how to replicate it on the cheap because the sphere is way cooler
Here is the video from the old post :
There is lots of magic to the Japanese one getting any shape that's light to hover is actually pretty easy. That Japanese one sorts itself out in pitch very well and contains yaw well with that double set of control vanes.
