Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Good for you!  ~~

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Found these rubber isolator things on RS. I installed them, they are a bit fiddly. They need some big 3mm ID penny washers, as the dampers rely entirely on the little brass tube not sliding out of the jelly stuff, and obviously, they do, so you need a washer on either side.

Will see how it works next time I fly...


One thing to be aware of - i think it is possible to have too much vibration damping. On my first quad i used so much foam under the flight controller that it was reacting more slowly to the quadcopter moving off level than it should have been.

At least i think that's the case. It definitely flew better when i removed some of the foam but this was a while ago now and i was much less knowledgeable about the whole subject of multirotors back then (of course) so i may be wrong on this.

If you find the quadcopter starts flying 'mushily' or responding slowly to being knocked off course it could be down to too much damping - though the dampers you have do look very nice and hopefully will provide the right amount for you.

I will be interested to hear your flight report.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.

Hi Tesla,

This is for the camera, the frame is so big and heavy, vibration on the FC dosn't seem to affect it....


Oh i thought it was for your naza to  :rolleyes: look forward to seeing some jello free video then  ~~


Nah this is the bottom of the main chassis thing, the camera hangs off this platform with holes in.


Ahh, these are the gelmec vibration dampers that are 4 quid each - so £16 for 4! When I get a decent frame I will mount these for a FC.

@ teslahed - it does seem odd that you would have too much vibration damping, the effect you describe sounds like the FC was moving around!  However, depending on what FC you have, some sort of input filtering could have been going on, which means if you little vibration, the filter algorithm may have taken some time to respond - who knows - it is why I like the wii code, it allows you to configure filtering if your frame has too much vibration!
