.. but I have found that as long as it (the FC that is) knows whereabouts it is relative to the CofG, it's fine. This can be adjusted on mine by sliding the lipo forward/aft, although in practice, although I use two sizes of lipo, I have never needed to do this.If you are a designer, probably best to get a pile of wood and screw your prototype together on the bench, then test fly it first (test bed). If she flies well in wood, then G10/carbon should be perfick!
Looks cool! Foldable quads are the best!I do have access to a laser cutter at my 'place of grind' so if you do need your prototype cutting accurately from wood or perspex, just PM me.
What kind of mechanism do you plan on using here NorcoT, or are you applying for patent first?!
Certainly, we have plenty of wood here! Ah, plastic clips? I haven't seen them.
Thanks Andy! I did consider the Xugong 10, seems quite difficult to get hold of one, most of the frames i've come across are either very expensive or come as a complete quad. Nonetheless they seem highly regarded.Building a test bed is a great idea thanks, will be sure to give this a go prior to getting the Carbon cut. Its not much yet but heres a screenshot of a couple of lunchtimes worth of playing about with geometry. still needs further tweaking to find a good layout. The 'v' at the front of the model is a marking of 170deg which is the FOV angle for the GoPro, considering the camera is below the props it shouldn't catch much (if any) view of the props.And the plate needs to be shrunk down a little!
