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.
