I came accross this website which allows you to configure graphically how to wire up lipo batteries. I have some 1S lipo batteries 180mah weigh 10.9g each. i have a 350mah lipo 2S batery which weighs 21.1g.
thinking to save weight, either buy some new lipo’s or use 2 1s Lipos which can be fitted flatter and wire them up according to this site:
Some links to design files (and buying options) for SMD devices prototype boards.
Something i have seen over the past week is the 3D printed brushless gimble.
Those over at Hackaday and had 2 posts about this today and yesterday, aswell as discussion on Reprap forum, but it is a very interesting idea.
I own a quadcopter, although my flying times are small, i have had it in the air with my HTC desire S strapped to it to get some rather shakey camera footage.
Im thinking, i ahve accelerometers, spare brushless motors, spare brushless controllers and a quadcopter, not to mention FPV equipment! oh and 3d Printer…
Im thinking this is worth while to build one of these!
Should also make this… http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:76369
After further investigations i have found the controller is a board from Flyduino and costs $110, so i think i may have to wait for costs to decrease first!
Hi all, just thought i would show you the latest in design of my Ant, name to be decieded, but will be a goodan, i have some possibilities, just need to check if there not taken!
This is a mock up design in solidworks, but i also have it printed and fited.
I have a controller design ready and now i have the design as i like i can start to design the PCB and get aluminium for the chasis walls 🙂
Let me know what you think
Prototype chasis printed in PLA, layer height 0.25mm. Time 1hr 57mins. Seems nice, few mods required.
