You all have heard and seen the commercial for Tempurpedic mattress
where the girl jumps on one end and the glass of wine on the other end
that doesn't spill ?
Look them up on the internet and request a free sample. Perfect size and
it REALLY kills the vibration, especially on ArduCopter.
Put this stuff in the Professional housing box under and around the mega and you will be all set.
Can't have one fom Europe .... sniff
Any chance a nice soul located in US can send me one ? I d def pay for the letter fees !!!!!
Great tip, Thanks a lot !!!!
Just ordered some for my friend in the USA hehe :P
That's why we are using those rather good vibration resistant gyros. I'd say bigger effect you can get by balancing your props with a piece of scotch tape or similar.
I will test this one too to see if it makes any difference or not.
free piece of tempurpedic memory foam is available here for those who don't already know..
and for crash protection I use Magic Scrubber sponges $2
For gas and easystars I have used indeed lots of foam like ppl say here but never happy with it.
Zeal Z8006 is not a foam. It is a gel based material. I have ordered two sheets from readyheli.com for use on my Twinstar II and Aeroquad quadrarotor controllers. If you do a search, you will find sufficient information on the Zeal gel material on the web.
So the suggestions are:
Dean, Chris, Earl - Memory foam
Kris – Velcro
Masterbaker – Zeal
Ravi – Sorbothane
Jamie – Rubber vibration dampener
Any other suggestions or experiences?
So far beside Zeal foam which I can’t find any data on, I think Kris may have the best all weather suggestion.
Kris, do you use the soft cloth type of Velcro or the harder plastic type?
