So it has been quite some time since I had anything exciting to post on my blog as you all have noticed and most times its because I have been working away in the workshop planning and designing some ( not always useful ) stuff. My latest fun build I had done as of the past summer, was a large folding quad copter that I found to be a lot of fun when taking those small road trips and doing some camping. My intent for this particular build was to have something affordable , somewhat compact, yet large and stable enough to handle some of those annoying windy conditions. SO , I came up with a frame I call “Leviathan”. Now I won’t give much of any of the design away as it is still a work in process and I am fortunate enough to have a couple good friends help me get it to a stage of where I would like it to be. It will run 6 S batteries and is designed to accommodate the “Power Hungry ” distribution board from ” UAV Rotorking ” with easy wiring access. The obvious plans are to incorporate FPV as well as a front mount camera gimbal, while attempting to offer a long flight time of hopefully in the area of 30-40 minutes. I am pretty happy with this build thus far and I hope to release photos of the prototype with in the next couple of months so stay tuned ! And don’t forget to subscribe to the blog for any future updates on this beast ! Here is a short video of this quad in flight from the summer so I hope you enjoy it , and please excuse the noise from the battery alarm as it was not really necessary to have it on board for such a short flight .
