Handle attempt 1


The 1st assembly of the Feiyu was disappointing. It wasn't as transportable as hoped, but it was more compact than keeping the shock absorbers. Wires hung out everywhere, but the assembly can probably be wrapped. The aluminum arms are going to bend over time. The bolts need reinforcing tubes. There's not enough clearance from the handle to easily turn an allen wrench. The pins for calibrating the horizon need to be flush on the handle.

The power switch managed to stick on by reflowing the hot glue after gluing it on. Reflowing hot glue by blasting it with the heat gun after initially tacking it has been effective at sticking difficult parts.

The power switch was deemed necessary because the Feiyu has to be powered on in the orientation it's going to stabilize in, but it's a fragile arrangement with lots of wires. A quick test should reveal if the power switch is necessary or if the battery plug, a MOSFET with delay, a tact button, or app button for enabling the Feiyu can do the job.

It was decided to remove the 2 pots for mode & speed. Those are better controlled over bluetooth app. The voltage regulator needs to be replaced by a 3.3V & bluetooth connected to the debugging port. Need to measure the power consumption of bluetooth.
