Hexa, New Year, New Love

Postby chschmid » Mon Jan 07, 2013 12:16 am

I had a lot of time to redraw my hexa over christmas/new year. I think I found a solution to get rid of the ugly legs and make her look a bit sexier.

Nice looking machine... wow! Very clean. Do you go through a lot of carbon plate? :) Love the landing gear setup, looks very sturdy. And of course the ESC cages/motors mounts... those really came out nice in the end.

Cheers,

I did my maidenflight today shortly after sunset. Wow, what an experience. Shee flies like a goddess. It was worth every second of the many building hours. Thanks to all of you for your support and pep talk.

Finally! 8-)

Maiden was a bit short but from what I saw she looks pretty stable. Also the gimbal seems to do a good job.
But I'm sure you'll deliver more vidz to evaluate this, right Christof? ;)

Finaly one and a half 300x600 plates did the trick, but I cut maybe 3 of them to get there. For the gimbal, the fourth design works well so far. But the functonality has still to be proven in a longer flight.
The first design of the centerplates dates back to september 12. After building the hexa I realised, that I can not use a 3 leg design in X setup. So a new constuction had to be found. And what you see above is the final edition. If its sturdy or not will come out after the first hard touchdown.

:D
Finally is the right saying, especially after last nights excercise with CrossStudio. ;)
And yes, I post the vidz as they come.
At this point thanks a lot for your support and for the numerous hints.

She's a beauty and she looks pretty stable!
I guess it was worth the pain of milling. :D
