Custom AR Drone 2.0 Outdoor hull : NASA Theme

E-mail Print

This template specially made for AR Drone 2.0 pilots who want to customized their drone hull. It is when my hobbies merged together, piloting AR Drone 2.0 and paper modeling. It’s started when Parrot gave me a unit of the new version 2 drone as a gift for my involvement in their promotion campaign, which is a paper model contest in this site in July 2012. Since that time I decided to do this hobby and now I have two drones. I made a 1:3 AR Drone 2.0 with both outdoor and indoor hull model for that contest. That one third model is not accurate so I made a new one with 1:1 scale by measuring the original hull, so it will fit into the real drone. I made the template last night, print it today and build it just now. I took some picture of it while it still on the ground and while flying as well.  I took pictures while the drone in auto-hover mode on quite strong breeze, but I had to do that before it’s getting dark (5 PM). Please understand this hull can not function like the original hull. It can not  protect the battery and specially the front mounted camera on impact or in a crash, it's light weight but it is not strong enough. Make sure to tighten the hull to the drone base because it can loose by the strong wind, you can use magnet sheet but I use double adhesive tape. Once again use it by understanding your own risk, I can not guaranty it will work to everybody. I also add blank patterns on the the last pages.

Datsun 240z RC Car DIY

E-mail Print

I'm trying something new again this time, trying to build an RC car that I never do it before. I know the hardest RC model to make is model car, but it turned out to be a lot harder than I expected. There were many troubles on the process like, I had to change the gear ratio combination because the first one was too heavy for the motor. The second gear combination was okay but still not efficient. The first motor (1200kv) was burned out, I had to replace it with 650kv. The second gear combination broke their teeth and then I replace the material from PVC foamboard to 2mm plywood, each gear comprise of 4 sheets bonded together. The mechanism was to noisy until I applied lubrication to the gears. And then the steering servo broke I had to replace it with a new one. It's so frustrated I kicked the car few times in madness lol, but luckily it still has it shape. Beautiful shape actually, the back side I think I nailed it, but the front side not so much, because the front tip is supposed to be lower but the front wheel are on the way. After many troubles, finally on the last day it can run and I can RC-drive it as you can see on the video and it turned out quite a good sight. I learned so much on this project that I can use that experience for other future projects like, making gears, use 2 switches to reverse brushless rotation.
