FPVDM equipped with DIYDrones APM2.5 Board


Check out the FPVDM Tricopter in loiter mode, flying in 5-10mph wind.

Eat your heart out, DJI Naza.

Unlike the DJI Naza, APM 2.5 can be configured to fly a tricopter. Yah baby!

No More Jello!


Hey Guys, just found this thread cause I have been interested in trying the Tricopter route. I currently have two quads, a TBS FPV Disco with Naza+GPS and a TalonV2 with a Quadrino+GPS. I also have the ArduPilot Mega 2.5 in an FPV Penguin (Plane). I think the AP Mega board is the best deal out there for the money so my next project I think will be a Tri with this board.

On the vibration thing I have a permanent solution, balance the motors (yes, and the props). It's easy to do and I can get a motor done now in about ten minutes. Here is a "How-To" page I put together on my Wiki and be sure to look all the way through as I put in a short-cut if you are less nerdy or just impatient

http://itsqv.homeserver.com/wiki/ind...otor_Balancing

If you balance your motors and props completely you may be amazed at how quiet your ship gets and you will have no jello.

Also, if you are interested, I've done some prop comparisons on my bench tester including the new 10x4 GemFan woody. (I'm a fan of the Graups myself)

http://itsqv.homeserver.com/wiki/ind...%22_Quad_Props

On the GoPro, I run the Hero2 and have found that indeed, brighter sun seems to amplify jello which is why I decided to figure out how to kill the vibration in the first place. I also found that if I am watching video primarily on a computer, 720P x 60FPS is just as cleen, if not cleaner, than 1080P x 30FPS. This is because the 60FPS setting has a wider view which serves to smooth it all out. If you are streaming to a big screen, 1080P has a slight edge but for me that is rare.

Enjoy!

Enjoy the new recipe of my jello-free video


Note the sun is shinning bright like diamonds.

Change the quality to 1080p HD before viewing the video. Yah baby!

Luis the owner of myrcbuild.com came up with the dream machine all the way up to the v1.3gp then I helped develope it the rest of the way to the version 1.5 which is what you are able to buy now. It's hands down the best Tricopter frame for Fpv.

Nowhere.. Luis is the only one who cut that frame.
He is really busy at the moment and cutting frames is a side hobby not a full time job for him.
