Show me the fixed wing flyers who can explain the real principles why their epp flyer rise into the sky ;-) The period of only nerdy knowledge enables you to get a multirotor up in the air is over. Actually its pretty enough to have moderate hand craft skills to get into multirotor.

Imagine my irritation after I put my foot into a shop after 25 years of absence from model planes. "where to hell are the classic wooden handcraft modells gone and w.t.f. is everywhere this rtf epp stuff?!?!"

Hi zerosight,

I have just spent the last three hours trawling the net/web and i can tell you the days of soldering anything more complicated than an ESC are almost over, we will be able to say i can remember ordering a kit of parts and soldering, then hoping it worked.
You can already buy multiwii with ACC and mag and barometer all soldered up and ready to fit in a frame cheaper than most IMU's.
The days of the multicopter pioneers are over. Its available to the mass's now and at rediculously cheap prices and 32 bit is already here for 2012!

Bring it on!!

Ray

Also it shows a 10uF electrolytic capacitor but the reg kit gives you a 22uf. which one is right or is it not important?

Sorry if these are noob electronic questions, but i can solder and assemble but i havnt got a clue what does what and why!
Just a Via Ray, dont care, just a GND Via, nothing you should care about.

hm, have to say thins thread is going into the wrong direction.
Have to say Ray is a real nice Guy, may my english isnt enough to explain right, but Ray dont expect anything, he is a very polite AND FOR SURE not unknowledged member of this forum.
I wonder sometimes myself what questions arrives at my mailbox, but Ray is for sure no one who is not able or wont search all the infos he can get on the Web.
So dont blame him, he dont deserve.
But also have to say Tilman, manny thanks for your help here.
Il ove your webpage and the style you explain the stuff, great, really.

Btw, its just a GND VIA (dont care) anda 22uF will do as a 10uF will, in this case bigger is often better, values for Capacitors dont have to be 100% precise in lots of cases, also the rated V can always be higher, higher means better in most regard this time.

I'm pretty sure that those tiny fool-proof vids will have an enormous impact on spreading this new way of flying to a lots of people with moderate crafting skills.

A place for collecting those (and many more) vids where everybody learn step by step how to put the things together would be nice.

Paul,

I would like to ask if there are any risks operating the Flyduino in the configuration shown in the attached Picture? The IMU is a Pololu MiniIMU-9 secured to the CPU with double-sided Tape.

Thank you.

Alexinparis did this too, ask him if he encountered any problems.

If you make shore none of the electronic components are touching each other I would say this should not be a problem as long as if there is no mag onboard.

Hmmm, there is a Mag on the board and maybe this is why there is noise. Wow!

first problem is noise
the second is heat from the atmega chip - it doesn't heat up in ordinary setup, but if you ever try to drive leds directly from the pins you may fry it

I think it's better to put a dome above or below...
