I would like to build a Plimp, similar to what Egan labs  built.  Has anyone attempted to build something similar ?     I'd like to build something like it.  I've got a spare pixhawk controller to…Continue

I upgraded a stable flying APM 2.0 quad running ArduCopter 2.7.3 to 3.1.3 and introduced a wobble

Hi guys.. I wonder of any of you have any ideas on how to reduce a wobble.  I went through all the steps as I did when I built the quad and installed firmware 2.7.3.  I'm attaching my flight logs…Continue

One thing about Chinese motors.  They are cheap and you can build a prototype quickly, but the Chinese can't make ball bearings to save themselves!   After 13 flights I had a motor fail.  I ordered…Continue

About Me:
I've been building robots and devices with embedded controllers as a hobby for a few years now. I've built a snellflight quadcopte, added night lighting, video cam, and soon a laser that will get triggered from my momentary toggle switch on channel 6.

I finally got my APM 2.0 board! Parts to build a largeer quadpod with 4 30A ESC and motors that need it :)
I think I'll need at least a 3200ma 3cell Lipo for a 20 minute flight. Once this baby is flying I'll start saving for a gopro hd cam.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I've built gadgets that use embedded controllers for a while. I think the hobby UAV is pretty cool, and the fact that there's an open resource that we can can use and contribute to is awesome! I'm hoping to build a quadpod heavy lifter, when I finally get a trunigy 9 channel radio I'll add a remote claw to the APM 2.0 to grab, lift, and place objects. I'm also looking forward to building a marine uav with my sons.
