Posted by Stisse in Plutten FPV, 30 March 2014 · 0 views

It´s fun too build new toys and as I feel I have all the multirotors that I need for now I decided to upgrade my fpv ground station, added a long range antenna to it for the future and planes, EagleEyes for diversity and multiple video out feeds, a DVR and a case to carry it all and also room for my Spektrum Dx9 transmitter.



So did some hunting on Ebay...

So, continuing the saga of my scratch-build tricopter...

She was kind of a beast when I started - 900mm MTM!



Her arms were so long they flapped like a bird - so I switched to ali and trimmed her back in size...





I've been flying my QAV-400 so much that I'm beginning to have trouble judging distances with the tri... :)

About Untested Prototype and Questions for the Future

Posted by scotti in scotti's Blog, 24 March 2014 · 0 views

This post is a detailed response to the one I made in the Team Razorback thread . I've place it here to keep their thread and community on topic.

I started Untested Prototype because I came across a few issues while working on my thesis project which involved multirotors. At the time, I had a Hitec Aurora 9 radio system and there was no PPM receivers av...

Next day, I attempted to resume and things didn't work. I then started over and got to Motor rotation and motors wouldn't start. I rebooted Board and started over. I got the motors running but when I got to t...

Tricopter Upgrade & Gimbal Redo

Posted by Movie Guy in Movie Guy's Blog, 06 February 2014 · 0 views
Tricopter, Brushless Gimbal, CC3D and 1 more...

I realized one day that, ever since I got the H-Quad, the Tricopter with it’s fancy gimbal was pretty much just sitting there. I got to thinking about it and realized the reason was a matter of simplicity. I took the quad because it flew really great and it just worked! I could grab the quad, go fly and come back feeling great from my limited flight time....

In this post I will document the progress I have made in constructing my TAROT X8.

I will add more detail as I get more time

CC3D;Quad;GPS;lightweight

My first CC3D Quad W ell it's about time to write my first blog entry. I've been into RC since I can't even remember but this year I started building my own. The direct cause of this step was that my colleagues at work went crazy when an offer for a Syma-X1 came by. We immediately bought 9 of those. A few days later, the boxes arrived and it was go-time. We also bought a...

Development of the Brushless Gimbal a good leason for Opensource

Posted by SkippyTBK in SkippyTBK's Blog, 10 November 2013 · 246 views

Well isn't that the irony of it all!. I have watched the BLGs development and it all happened mostly within the last 12 months or so. It went from a novelty (DIYs open source builds, etc) then to 3-5 thousand dollar commercial gimbals and now back to $50-$250 gimbals all in less than 18 months.

Companies like Zenmuse must have made massive profits on wh...
