Multicopter is a special copter with more than three motors. It has six modules, include flying platform, flight control system, propulsion system, remote controller, remote control receiver, PTZ camera.
1. Flying Platform
The size of flying platform is depend on size of oar wing and volume of motor; oar wing longer, larger motor, and then the platform will be increased accordingly. The platform is mainly use light material to reduce drone payload.
2. Flight control system
Flight controller usually built-in sensor such as controller, gyroscope, ,accelerometer and barometric. The drone is depend on this sensor to stability of body, and then cooperate with GPS and barometric to locking at the specified position and height.
3. Propulsion System
Drone propulsion system by the oar wing and motor composition. When oar wing rotation, it can produce reaction forces to lead drone body flight. The propulsion system built-in electronic speed control that adjust speed of motor.
4. Remote Controller
the pilots through remote control to control the drone’s flight.
5. Remote control receiver
Main function is to make the aircraft received by the remote control signal from remote control commands.
6. PTZ camera
At current aerial cameras of drone, some models allow user to assemble their own third-party cameras except the drone manufacturer presets for the camera. The third-party cameras such as Gopro Hero 4 sport cameras or Canon EOS 5D series cameras. Aerial cameras is mainly through...Continue Reading

More progress on the Ralleye conversion. I replaced the front top c-hub links with yokomo ball and tie rod ends. Longer ball studs were installed for a better setting. The chassis has been prepared for larger arm travel. 75mm shocks are installed.

I wired up the esc to find it was shorting out. Even the steering servo would cause the system to shut down. I don't know if Viper RC is still supporting their product. Disappointing hiccup.

Here is another simple project for everyone can build. It's a Tricopter Boomtwist yaw system with a 2nd servo installed to drive the 2 front motors to tilt forward and back on Elevator stick command. This system has given the platform the next level performance and making it more fun to fly.

Bearings are used to give the smoothest boom action , 2 in the front and 2 for the yaw system, using a 16mm Carbon Fiber tube to make the platform light as possible with a twin custom cut Aluminum frame. NEW Sunnysky X2212-13 KV980 to get the best motor performance driven by Maytec 20A BL Heli fw (Mini ESC's). Glass Fiber motor mounts and TGY 225MG Metal gear servos. Mini KK2.1.5 . with RC911 R4 SL MIX Fw. Can fly with 3S and 4S lipo.

Here are some close-up pix. Video will follow soon.

Boldclash B-03 opensource firmware without alt hold

I've worked out a firmware for the Boldclash B03 quad, with dual mode, (rate and level modes) , it flies quite well but right now the altitude hold is not implemented, so the stock tx should not be used, because of it's center throttle.

Flashing the quad with new firmware:

Preparing the hardware:

The quad is flashed using a st-link v2 which can be purchased from many online places, such as ebay for example. The FC is fitted with a socket, so the process does not require soldering if an appropriate connector is used. The connector is likely to be listed as a "micro jst 1.25 4 pin" on ebay.

If connector is not available, wires can be soldered to the board as well.

3 wires are needed, Ground ( GND) , CLK ( SWCLK on stlink) and DAT( SWDIO on stlink). Connect the pads / plug to the equivalent place on the st-link: GnD <-> Gnd , CLK <-> SWCLK and DAT <-> SWDIO.

Preparing the software:
Download and install the St-Utility , which will also install drivers for the st-link, and is used to upload the precompiled firmware to the board. If you want to compile a firmware with custom settings, you need to install Keil as well, details in a different section.

Erasing the board:
Before the new firmware can be flashed, the factory firmware has to be erased. This step only needs to be performed once, it does not need to be done every time the board is flashed.

1) Connect the board to the st-link and apply power from a battery, in any order.

2) Using the St-utility, connect to the board. You should get a message saying the board is protected.

3) In the Target menu, select "Option bytes".
Do not select an incorrect Level and apply it as it will kill the board.

a. Select "Level 0" ( Should have been Level 1 originally )

b. Doublecheck you have "level 0" selected

c. Click Apply

4) At this the factory firmware should erased, click disconnect, and remove power from the board.


To be completed

Our club sent out the word that some of them would go out flying today so I took my Hog Bipe, Etna, and my little A-10. I figured the wind would be too much for my liking but it was not!

I started the day off with the Etana since I knew if it could handle the wind, my Hog Bipe would be "a breeze" lol. It certainly was a little windy for precision work on the Etna, but I was able to keep control of it for a nice fun flight. The down wind leg was interesting as the wind really whipped it's tail around.

After an easy landing, or rather a slow almost vertical descent to the ground against the wind, I got the Hog ready. In between I watched some club guys do a little flying too. The Bipe really took off in the headwind! Then tried to go vertical! but I got it under control and had some fun as I watched my right wheel and pant fall to the ground into the tall grass. I did some more flying, especially since I figured it would be grounded for the rest of the day. The plane flew great inverted and basic maneuvers were easy. I have got to program in some roll coupling when using rudder. It pulls pretty bad to the side the rudder is on. Hardly any up elevator was needed for inverted. Knife edge was sloppy because of the roll coupling issue. All in all, this plane few awesome. I then attempted a one wheel landing. I did a great job of landing on the only front wheel, but as it slowed, the other came down and the plane nosed forward. No problem though!...Continue Reading

I just added two new painted pilots to the collection. 1/10 scale European American "LT.H J Curran" will pilot the controls of my Eflite P-47 razorback and will be a tremendous scale upgrade for this warbird! And a 1/10 scale German lufftwaffe pilot waiting on a new 1200mm eflite BF109 or FW190 airplane.
The detailing on both pilots are stunning! Very happy with how they turned out, Thank you Greg!

Check out my go-to daily driver! Picked her up for $25 from a guy who was moving. One of the ailerons was snapped off and the tail assembly was broken off. Nothing a little epoxy and hinge notcher couldn't fix! The engine was nasty also. I could tell it had sat in a moist garage for a couple years. It's one of those evolution trainer engines with the giant heavy flywheel. Easy to tune and reliable, though! It's one of those planes you take out to the cornfield after work. Rain or shine, windy or calm. If anyone is looking for a trainer anyone can fly, I suggest grabbing one for cheap!

Back to the field after yet more repairs on the AT-6 Texan(Freewing). I'm stressed before take-off knowing that I had messed with the motor angles due to a stalled take-off a couple days ago. The field is in spring conditions, long grass and bumpy. The plane nosed over on the first attempt. Great. No damage but I know I have to give up elevator to prevent another nose over. Not good. A miracle happened and I got the plane in the air. Now another miracle, it needs just a few clicks of trim and wow, it's flying great.!! Better than before.!!!! I was amazed. So, I enjoyed the flight and had a perfect high speed landing on the rough field. 2 more batteries for 2 more flights but, I have to deal with the bumpy field conditions again. Not good. I nosed it over again. Great. So, I decide to put it on the asphalt walking path. It's really narrow but somehow I got up off the asphalt and it's flying great. An ugly take-off but it's up and flying really nice. I have a decent landing but it lightly noses over on the grass. 1 battery, 1 flight to go. Back to the asphalt. Narrow. I take my time getting it straight and then I punched it and the plane lifted off so nicely and scale like, just a beautiful shallow take-off flying perfectly away from me. I had such a nice flight and then a really nice landing. So, the plane is trimmed out and flying really great. It's been quite an achievement. A lot of work. I've gained a lot of experience being in the hobby now for 3 years. By overcoming...Continue Reading

I had 2 flights on the AT-6 tonight. They were the first flights with the plane on the new DX6 radio so there was some trimming taking place. It's a tough plane to get off the ground and the 3rd flight attempt failed on take off. The plane snap rolled to the left and cartwheeled in. Broke the prop. When I got it home and on the bench I noticed it pushed the shaft on the motor in by about a 1/4". So, I had to tear it done and take the motor off. Then, when I got it put back together I noticed the cowl and motor mount had shifted. The motor actually had an up-tilt to it. Not good. I was lucky enough that I could "pop" the cowl forward from the top and then glue some balsa in to maintain the proper down tilt. This plane had received a bunch of modifications in the cowl and with the motor mount. The CG from the factory is waay off. The plane needed a ton of weight in the short nose. The weight added makes the plane darn near impossible to get off the ground with the stock motor. I had created my own motor mount and remounted the motor nearly an inch forward from it's original placement. I also gave it more down thrust and more right thrust. It looked extreme but that is where it needed to be to get the plane to fly proper. So, having to mess with the cowl and motor mount AGAIN was frustrating. OH, and I had to push the landing gear forward, too. The retracts were a problem from the start. See attached pictures and then .... Fast forward to 4.22.17....
