Thirty Days (#17): 12-rotor close up

I had a couple of requests for a still shot of the 12-rotor beast that Joe and Justin cooked up, so here it is.

What's the rubber band / servo thing do?


Comment by Joshua Johnson on May 23, 2013 at 6:33pm

I was looking at that a lot today trying to figure it out.... Maybe it tilts that leg and maybe the leg is attached to the camera? so my guess is that it pulls the leg in and pushes it back out and in return it tilts the camera up and down.  Thats just a guess though and I'm like 99% sure I'm wrong.

Or Maybe it has to do with a New 3DR Gimbal Camera Mount?!

Stone: Funny you should ask. You'll find out on June 8th ;-)

Hmmm...  A mystery! :-)

My first thought was a banjo or guitar that changes tune as you turn the servo arm one way or the other!  j/k

just to release something in the demo, a parachute, a banner, how knows....

I have great faith it will be cool and nothing so prosaic as a camera gimbal.

I'll go with release for something(s).

Piggyback drone?

Look how compact that thing is, that is what impressed me the most!

Regarding the servo and rubberband: one thing I can assure you, is that there are no tacos, burritos, or other food items involved.

Food belongs on the plate, not flying through our airspace.

@ Josh...

..I better report our 1 year old to the FAA then. Every meal involves testing whether you can catch indoor thermals with pasta.
