In this article I will be talking about quadcopter components and how to choose them. This is part of the tutorial series on how to build a quadcopter. In the next post I will be talking about software, how to go about the algorithm and programming. If you are planning on building a quadcopter but not sure how, this is the right place for you. Doing research is pretty boring, so I am trying to put together a comprehensive tutorial about quadcopter, hope it helps you as much as it helped me. Building a quadcopter from scratch takes a lot of time and effort. For more tutorials, check out this list.

This blog post is divided into a three parts What is a Quadcopter and How It WorkQuadcopter Components IntroductionConclusion A QuadCopter is a helicopter with four rotors, so it’s also known as quadrotor. The Quadcopters exist in many different sizes. For example, to roll or pitch, one rotor’s thrust is decreased and the opposite rotor’s thrust is increased by the same amount. Frame Propellers. How to build your own Quadcopter AutoPilot / Flight Controller. Fig 1: 3DR Quadcopter Contents This article will walk you through building your own controller whilst teaching you the details of how it works. This information is hard to find, particarly for those of us who are not aerospace engineers! Personally, it took me six months because much of my time was spent bug hunting and tuning, but with this article you can achieve the same in anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Fig 2: ArduPilot hardware The first shortcut is your choice of hardware.

The ArduPilot project is sponsored by 3D Robotics - this means that they build the hardware and sell it for a small profit, and then feed some of this profit back to the community. In this article, I am going to assume you have the ArduPilot hardware which is essentially an Arduino with attached sensors. Fig 3: Propellor Configuration I'm also going to assume you have some experience with the arduino - or atleast with C/C++. The HAL library is made up from several components: Back to top It is used as: Choosing Quadcopter Motors and Props. Choosing a Quadcopter Motor and Prop When building a quadcopter, deciding which motors and propellers to buy is tricky, but a very important decision. There is a lot of math and science that goes into understanding how the motors and propellers effect how a quadcopter flies or if it flies.

As a novice, it is very easy to be overwhelmed by all of it. The correct motor/prop combination needs to be chosen by considering the size and weight of the quadcopter, the length of flying time and the power and agility that are desired. Also, the battery and ECSs must be chosen to effectively drive the motor/prop combination. Continue reading to find out how to decide the combination that is best for you… How to Decide?

The way I see it, there are two different ways to go about making this important decision. Research what other experienced pilots use and buy the same or similar equipment. Now here’s more on each approach.. Who are some great pilots and what are they using? Configuration Motors & Props Tip. Quadcopter Build for Noobs. All - I have been following various threads on here for the last month or so and have been inspired to attempt my first RC build, a quadcopter. I will attempt to catalog the build as I go so that other inexperienced builders will have something to reference. Before I get started, many thanks to Old Man Mike (OMM), S11D336B, Signguy, Reverendrichie, Jesolins, and others for their informative threads and builds.

A quadrotor, also called a quadrotor helicopter, is an aircraft that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadrotors are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is derived from four rotors. They can also be classified as helicopters, though unlike standard helicopters, quadrotors are able to use fixed-pitch blades, whose angle of attack does not vary as the blades rotate. Many resources are available to prospective quadcopter builders. Quadrocopter and Tricopter Info Mega Link Index My Build: Part Choices: How to build Retracts for Quadcopters/multirotors.

Produktinformationen "Rachel" Der Kunstflugrahmen wurde nach einem Jahr Härtetest noch einmal einem Feintuning unterzogen. Rachel ist mit 35 Zentimetern Spannweite und einem Gewicht von 145 Gramm härtesten Belastungen gewachsen. Nicht nur Kunstflug-Piloten, sondern auch Anfänger schätzen den Rahmen, der nahezu jeden Einschlag klaglos einsteckt. Die Arme und Centerplates der Rachel bestehen aus hochtemperiert gepresstem CFK. Neben dem Lochraster im 45x45mm Standard-Format für gängige Flugsteuerungen hat die Version 2.2 ein zusätzliches Lochraster im 30x30mm-Format, um moderne Mini-Flugsteuerungen wie zum Beispiel das NAZE32 von Abusemark oder das NanoWii von Flyduino aufzunehmen.

Zwei unterschiedlich breite Schlitz-Paare in der unteren Centerplate erlauben die sichere Befestigung des Akkus mit einem Klettspanngurt. Rachel wird mit einem kompletten Montagesatz geliefert, inklusive Befestigungsschrauben für die Motoren. Technische Daten: Lieferumfang: Empfohlene Antriebe: IntelligentUAS - 1UAS.

OPENROV. OpenROV is a community of people working together to create a more accessible, affordable, and awesome platform for underwater exploration. By working together, we've created the OpenROV submarine- an open-source underwater robot that sends live video up to a computer on the surface and allows the user to control where it goes. (Here's a little bit more history about who we are and why we're doing what we're doing.) If you want to start building an OpenROV there are two routs you can take: OpenROV is open source (code and design files), so we provide all the files, build notes, and bill of materials you'll need to build one yourself. If you want to go this route, you'll need to source your own parts.

Warning: All of these are in process of being updated for v2.5- stay posted. OpenROV is not only open source, we're also crowdsourced, which means we rely on feedback from our community to help us grow. OpenROV v2.5 Our dream with OpenROV is to make it so that anyone can be an explorer. Next level aerial filming.
