I'm shortly going to work integrating the OpenPilot telemetry with ROS. Main (long term) focus is indoor positioning and navigation. This is a quick mockup of the craft that will be used. Plates are going to be rebuilt to better host everything The reference platform is made by OpenPilot Revolution flight controller; OpenPilot GPSV9 with … Continue reading Foldable quad for ROS integration experiments
(thanks to Juha, from the FirePick Google group ) I got the printed plastic parts. after a minor cleanup of the captitive nuts seats. here is part of the delta mechanism assembled: Then it is the turn of the three arms secured to the bearing using nuts and washers. I used nilock nuts to prevent them … Continue reading FIrepick, update 3
And here we are 🙂 let's start building my FPD-032 beginning with Plates: bottom, Delta Motor and Top plates. They are milled from 5mm Polycarbonate (lexan) sheet. I'm working toward having it working as 3D printer as soon as possible so that i can start to develop the rest of functionalities. I'm going to use … Continue reading Firepick, let’s start!
Having the need to build both a pick&place and a 3D printer I stumbled upon http://firepick1.github.io/ Right now i'm in the planning purchasing phase. More details as soon as i start with the building phase.
Just a quick teaser, plans and other infos coming soon! Credits goes to the great designs from http://untestedprototype.com/ on which it was heavily based.
Here are the drawings for a mini-H I built some time ago. it can be easily folded to be put in a backpack. The design was built using the following materials: Main center frame assembly n° 14 M2x16 hex socket bolts n° 12 M2 nuts n° 8 M2 self locking (nylock) nuts n° 14 M2 … Continue reading Mini Revo foldable H frame
After a huge amount of crashes with my mini swift, i eventually decided to rebuild it creating an hatch in the top where I can put a CopterControl and, in a near future, GPS and PipXtreme on it. The little thingy is not really light as I put a hxt 2730 motor (25gr motor only) … Continue reading Rebuilt mini swift
Ci sono diversi modi più semplici per aggiungere dei tasti mappati direttamente su tastiera ad un comando remoto: questo è un esempio: http://www.obdev.at/products/vusb/hidkeys.html Si tratta di un semplice circuito a microcontrollore AVR che emula una tastiera e che dispone di 17 tasti. Dal pc viene visto come una classica tastiera USB, quindi non è necessario … Continue reading DIY CNC (Part 4)
Stasera sono riuscito a completare la prima chiocciola con supporto. le viti laterali visibili in foto servono a bloccare la chiocciola al suo interno. Sto valutando se potrebbe essere utile fare un taglio sulla chiocciola per poter usare le viti anche per ridurre il gioco (ma penso che per quando mi servirà sarò già passato … Continue reading DIY CNC (Part 3)
