ClipQuad airborne

Postby chschmid » Sat May 16, 2015 6:05 pm

I had my second maiden today. All went well, this time with the production ESC32V3.

The Quad navigates very aggressive, especially when starting altitude changes. When I remember right, someone else had this phenomena and found a solution as well. A link to this topic and hints are very welcome.

ClipQuad (explanation for "clip" in the video)
AQ6 with ESC32v3 over PDB over CAN
Tiger U5 with Tiger 15x5 @ 6s
AUW 2.7Kg (without camera)

Enjoy. [youtube]watch?v=Q9DVPfO0R5U[/youtube]

Hey Max

Yeah, that's the sound of quick aligned assembly. :D
But took me a while to get it right.

Yah, that *click* sounds trustworthy. 8-)

As for the transitions: they look ok on PH -> RTH. That short "freefall" when you changed alt on RTH is good for a shocking split second, though. Maybe you could try to decrease your altitude speed P.

btw: did Dennis go through a Stimmbruch? :D

The voice in vid is from Tom (sulzi). He took the vid. There are also many ideas and parts from Tom in the ClipQuad.

Christof

You and Tom have a very versatile quad that can be adapted for many uses.

Congratulations.

Hi Christof!
Thumbs up! What an awesome thing! I like the 'click' sound of the arms/legs; seems to be very tight fit.
Flight performance is really nice! I like an aggressive response of the craft. O.K. for camera flight's this should be changed ;)

Do you plan to sell the arm interconnections? What's your arm diameter?

Would be interested in having a look on your ESC32V3 calibration data. What's the switching frequency for the U5?

Maybe after testing them. All parts are still "hand samples" meaning CNCed piece by piece.
The arms are 22mm OD / 20.6 ID.

Love the way the arms and legs just 'click' into place. Ideal for transporting a Quad. Awesome neat build
