RC Quadrotor Helicopter

RC Quadrotor Helicopter
This project is a RC quadrotor helicopter (quadrocopter, quadcopter, quadricopter, etc). It's a RC helicopter that uses 4 rotors. Watch it in 720p You need some pre-requisite skills: How to use Arduino, enough to get started Soldering, wiring, basic electronic skills Basic hand tool operation A quadrotor helicopter flies with 4 spinning propellers on a + shaped frame. When one rotor spins faster than the rotor on the opposing side, the faster side will have more lift, and thus the helicopter will tilt. The propellers also need to be in counter-rotating pairs, two spin clockwise and two spin counter-clockwise. We will be building a flight controller circuit that contains an accelerometer and gyroscope sensor so that a microcontroller can detect undesired changes in the helicopter's angle, and adjust each rotor's speed accordingly to counter the variation. The flight controller is a completely open source circuit. This helicopter will use four brushless motors. Summary of Downloads: Related:  Drones

Forums - AeroQuad - The Open Source Quadcopter The AeroQuad is an open source hardware and software project dedicated to the construction of remote controlled four-rotor helicopters, also known as quadcopters or quadrocopters. The latest software also support additional multicopter configurations! Buy AeroQuad Parts HereDownload the AeroQuad Software AeroQuad hardware typically consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS. Below you'll find an overview of the features AeroQuad offers you: Multiple flight configurations are supported: Development: For information on the development of AeroQuad, see the AeroQuad GitHub Repository, the AeroQuad Developers Guide and our Wiki.

RUG/Sweden Projektet är härmed igång och vi har som mål att bygga och förbättra en Mendel alternativt Rapman. Målet är att studera designmässiga förbättringar av en extruder. Frågan är: -Kan en Reprap fås att skriva så exakt och med så många materialvariationer att den blir 100% Reprap? Vi som uttalar målet är tre bröder i Malmö. Location RepRap Map link. Time 7pm Tuesday every other week, starting with the second Tuesday in January. The forum is the official mailing list! local First Robotics Competition local RoboOne and Robot hobby group.

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. Many resources are available to prospective quadcopter builders. It is my understanding that the QuadPowered guys will soon be releasing detailed build instructions in the Docs section of the QuadPowered website. Quadrocopter and Tricopter Info Mega Link Index My Build: The following is a list that I have compiled of parts that I intend to use for the build. Part Choices: Frame www.quadpowered.com

Funktioner | 5-axis CNC hobby Allmänna funderingar CNC maskinbygget är en hobby i sig själv, men det jag vill åstadkomma är en maskin som klarar många olika operationer så att en enda maskin duger till många olika hobbyaktiviteter. Den erfarenhet som jag har fått från mitt första cnc-bygge är att även om jag har byggt en maskin som inte är tillräckligt stabil för annat än plast så är det ändå möjligt att fräsa i aluminium och verktygsstål om man har små krav på bearbetningshastighet. Denna första maskin har enkla trapetsgängade ledskruvar med hemtillverkade muttrar av POM. Muttrarna är brotchade med hjälp av en bit av trapetsskruven som har svarvats konisk och givits tänder genom att den har slitsats med en vanlig bågfil. I denna maskin har jag även gjort försök med automatiserade verktygsbyten som jag har för avsikt att vidareutveckla till nästa maskin. En fjäderbelastad spännhylsa greppar ett 8mm cylindriskt verktygsfäste. Jag har nu kommit fram till realiseringen av vridlederna.

Build A Quadcopter From Scratch - Hardware Overview 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

Drone: cette petite caméra volante au service du journalisme Le 19 juin dernier, un ovni a survolé les spectaculaires dégâts causés par la crue de Lourdes, ville de pèlerinage. Une manifestation du Saint-Esprit? Une visite extra-terrestre? Loin de là... Un drone, venu tout droit de la rédaction de BFMTV, offrait une visibilité inédite sur la ville sinistrée. L'Express a été le premier média français à avoir flairé son potentiel. "Le drone, c'est 60% de pilotage, 30% de vidéo et 10% de journalisme", en déduit Raphaël Labbé, directeur de l'équipe Innovation du site. Grâce à sa mobilité, le drone séduit pour la précision de ses images. "C'est un atout supplémentaire pour filmer, qui a pu être complémentaire à la vue d'ensemble capturée depuis un hélicoptère." Pas que des avantages Le drone peut être un atout majeur pour prendre des images d'endroits peu accessibles. En région parisienne notamment, environnement citadin par excellence, leur utilisation est plus difficile à mettre en oeuvre et les autorisations plus compliquées à obtenir.

1 - Les drônes au service du journalisme ? Les Hacks Hackers sont soit journalistes, soit développeurs. Ils font partie d’un réseau international qui compte 10 000 personnes sur le globe et se retrouvent ponctuellement par petits groupes pour réfléchir au futur de l’information. Dans ces conditions, difficile pour les Hacks Hackers français de passer à côté du drone journalisme ces temps-ci. Car si aux Etats-Unis, cette nouvelle pratique est déjà en place depuis un certain temps, en France, on est en train d’assister à son éclosion, là, maintenant. Le projet « Drone it », lancé par le Lab de L’Express le 30 mars risque de donner un coup d’accélérateur au phénomène. LES POUR :Le directeur de l’innovation à l’Express, Raphaël Labbé, le répète : le drone permettrait au journalisme de « prendre de la hauteur ». Autre atout en faveur du drone journalisme, son coût plutôt réduit. LES CONTRE : Sous d’autres aspects, le drone journalisme s’avère moins accessible. «Le drone journalisme n’existe pas encore vraiment en France».

Make PCBs at home with magazine paper and your laser printer How to make PCBs at home in 1 hour & W I T H O U T special materials What you need You need also: a blade cutter, scotch tape, sandpaper, kitchen paper, cotton wool, vice, hacksaw. How it works Laser printers and photocopiers use plastic toner, not ink, to draw images. Finding the right paper The perfect paper should be: glossy, thin, and cheap. Paper preparation I discard pages heavily printed, preferring pages with normal-size text on white background. Printer setup Laser printers are not designed for handling thin, cheap paper, so we must help them feeding the sheets manually instead of using the paper tray. Printing Disclaimer: your laser printer is not designed to handle this kind of paper. This is my PC thermometer circuit printed on IEN magazine paper. How to cut raw material PCB material is fibreglass like, and a trick to cut it effortlessly is to score a groove with a blade cutter or a glass cutter.
