Where is the GHI Quadcopter Fly?
Pretty amazing what you can do with modern electronics - thanks for the link.
GREAT LINK - Thanks
I kind of laughed when I saw “It is not a toy and should be handled with care.”
Was/Is into RC but never had much luck with Hele’s
That PCB made of Carbon Fiber I hope!
hehe thats pretty cool, if a tad expensive.
Considering what you get it’s probably not that bad a deal. Considering how long it would last under my control…definitely would not get my money back out of it
@ ianlee74 - hahahahahah me too, ive lost count of the number of times ive had to repair my coaxial heli. I would probably fly this thing into my face in about 8 seconds.
A question for you RC guys - they offer this in 6 DOF and 10 DOF flavors. Why would you need ever need 10?
The only thing I can think of is some quadcopters can reverse thrust direction to do more radical maneuvers.
Of course I mostly fly fixed wing
@ ransomhall - here’s your DOF’s
3 x Accel
3 x Gyro
3 x Mag
Gets you orientation
1x Baro for height
1x Either GPS or Pitot tube for speed to calculate centripetal force
nice, but crazy expensive!
One could argue that so is gadgeteer
yah but with gadgeteer I can fly my board and when i’m done I can take apart and make a robot out of the same board to go and fetch me a beer
Haha, now you have said that we need video evidence
I would love to but my neighbor saw what my Gadgeteer board can do and how amazing it is, so as soon as it flew over his air space he confiscated it and have been trying to create an alien spaceship out of it :), I think he mentioned something about a Mission to Mars.
good thing he isn’t interested in my beer
and don’t worry I’ve got my camera locked on his house, so as soon as he fly’s his ship i’ll share the video.
@ Jay Jay - lol, nice save
