New Octo build

Postby chschmid » Mon Aug 12, 2013 12:13 am

I just finished the first arm of my new octo. A new solution to Mount the ESC32.

I am as always happy to get some comments. There are always Details to improve.

Cheers
Christof

Christof,

I really like the idea with the "tray" for the ESC32's, plus holding the caps...
3D printed? Are you thinking about selling them?

Christof

Did you use some stiffeners to keep the tube round were you bolt the motor mount to the tube?

For now it is just cut from a GF 1.5mm sheet. When it works well, I can send you some.

Hi Larry

I will connect the tube and the motormount with glue. The bolts are just there for adjustment when glueing and for safety. They are not tightened.

Hi Christof, that's probably the cleanest ESC32 "package" I've seen yet! Love the cap supporter. Only thing missing for me is room for some thin (flat aluminum/ceramic) heat sinks. The female bullets are solid, butt-soldered like that? Looks great.

Cheers,

It's "Swiss Made" - what did you expect? 8-)

I love that ESC cradle, too. Makes a very clean setup. I doubt you'll need heat sinks for the 3110 motors - they draw less than 20A at 4s with 11x5 props.

Chris: do you have any close up shots of the bare holder?

Maybe if it was chocolate or clockwork... :P

Yea, didn't mean to imply that Christof would need heat sinks for that particular setup. There might even be enough room under there already... hard to tell. 8-)

Also an option for horizontal bullets with the carrier board for additional support/contact area... mmmm.

Where do the main power leads connect to?

Thanks for the comments. I will post some more pics soon.
Depending on the spacer and overall highth between lower and upper mot Mount, Heatsinks can be mounted easyly.

Cheers

The ESC32 mount is cut from 1.5mm GF and the ESC32 just glued with a drop of CA.
