Project Dualcopter – worklog #2

3 weeks after my first post on Project Dualcopter, it's time for small update. The plan was to install servos and control surfaces. Instead, I've done:

  • Basic electrical wiring for motors and ESCs. They have power now and are ready to be connected to flight controller
  • To level shelf (above propellers) designed to hold flight controller and radio receiver
  • Think for a moment about landing gear. Yeap, there will be some sort of shock absorbers
  • Think for a moment where battery will be placed: as low as possible to keep center of gravity below center of thrust
  • Decide which propeller should run clockwise and which should run counterclockwise: top should go clockwise, bottom should go counterclockwise

  1. 3D parts… PLA?
    very interested to see how you will build the control surfaces.
    btw, JUST got a new 3D printer.
