Quote from: RS on Monday,January 28, 2013, 22:27:10 Well I have actually finished building it:)The weight without battery is 361gr . AUW with 2.2A battery should be ~540gr
QuoteIm thinking to go for some carbon props from Hi-Model. Very cheap, but I know someone who got them and he says they are OK.http://www.himodel.com/plane/8x4.5_Carbon_Fiber_Propeller_Set_CW_CCW.html
QuoteThe ESC';s are experimental, made by my friend and with his own fw. Im just a test pilot:)They are very similar to the esc s with SimonK fw in terms of performance. Maybe a bit better at some parameters(response) , and at some maybe still needs to be improved.The whole idea was to make a different shape esc that would fit inside 12x12mm copters boom (arm) and to improve performance and efficiency .This is not a commercial project, at least for now :)I have already maidened it in my back garden, just to see how it behaves , so nothing fancy.Here is the video:Weekend Im expecting to test it properly
Quote from: teslahed on Tuesday,January 29, 2013, 08:47:17 The bambucopter is a fair bit smaller again - sized for 5 or 6 inch props instead of 8 or 9 inch props with a frame that weighs about 30 grams fully built (empty) rather than more like 130 for the flyduino.Both look like great fliers to me - just not quite the same. The bambucopter is going to be better for stunts in tight enclosed spaces but wont be pulling high speed maneouvers like loops and rolls with quite the same enthusiasm. You could easily flip and loop the bambucopter in a garden the size shown in RS';s video - the flyduino would do them but it would take up most of the space available once you had any forward speed. I will say that for fun and especially stunt flying i think the rctimer / dji style frames are too big and heavy to be ideal. A quadcopter with 8 inch props at around half to three quarters of a kg total flying weight flies much better for that kind of thing than 10 inch props on a 1kg + quadcopter, in my experience. And they tend to survive crashes better - especially in long grass. Just to let you know - i wont be wanting to buy your bambucopter of you, thanks paul, i managed to get my self made frame flying in the end;Thanks anyway!
