After my terrible crash, most possibly caused by a lost caps due to vibs I was learning some 3D drawing in the last days and built a housing for ESC32 and caps. Hopefully this will prevent the caps from falling off. :D
The first fairly good PLA print was ready this morning. I am still experimenting a little with the printer settings.

Cheers
Christof

This is realy awesome :o

Do you think gluing only is enough? Hm, i would ad some supporttube or inlet in the arm.
Maybe somthing 3D printed.

Chris all thumbs up for your projekt!

You mean a support to tighten the screws to a bit? Like this?

I am working on the power distribution.

Whats the better solution regarding magnetic fields and EMI:

1. a closed ring wire with connections
2. an open ring wire with Connections

Ok, no answers. So I will try it out.
The distribution is ready. It is completly 3D drawn and can be replicated any time.

The motormounts are ready too. This is the 3D printed proof of concept.

One thing I do know is that in the past I've had nothing but trouble with the style of bullet connectors your using, the best one to use are these, but they are expensive however I have had no problems since upgrading to them.

Hi Mäx

Looks like. So I will do some tests.
And thanks for the flowers. Just trying to build a copter that can be built from defined parts/data.

Cheers

What kind of trouble did you have with the 4mm connectors?
