Having seen some of the previous design and protoype work form the previous post, here is the final version of the MOD4 module drone design before going to the Fall Surf and Lifestyle Expo.
This is has a 25 mm tube diameter with 17 inch motor to motor center frame dimensions.
So, because we were pressed for time before the show. ( we had burned out a makerbot print extruder and had to wait for a new one to complete the design) we were a little nervous about the test flight. We didn’t want to crash this model since we didn’t have any backup components. But we were pleasantly suprised when we had an awesome first flight. The first V frame design of its kind worked as planned, thanks to many hours of hard work by the whole Outdoor Robotics Team.
