Nice, but needs a bit better sound track - the current version had me looking for the bottle of mosquito dope and a fly swatter....

Well after chipping the tip of a 10 inch prop on my toolbox in my room it really sounds like a mosquito. Had to fit some 8 inch props as its all I have here. Revs like crazy. No longer goes about 60mph though. About 40mph is all...

So ordering new ones.

This is going to be complicated...

Its uses the arms from a 450 DJi Quad, the Centre section from a Team Black Sheep DISCOVERY or TBS. It uses 30 amp chinese speed controllers flashed with special firmware from a guy called Simon, and a NAZA stability controller, with compass, GPS, 3 gyros, 3 Accelerometers, and some clever software. And Graupner thin electric flight 9x5 props (currently using 8s - was testing 10s.) and a 70C 4 cell 4 Ah nano tech lithium battery from Hobby king. And a GoPro2 cam... And a 8 channel Spektrum Reciever and 2 sattelite recievers, soon to get a small FPV cam from china and a 5.8ghz 600mW transmitter and a cloverleaf antenna to feed my visor so I can see what it does... And a Logo 600 heli undercarriage. Did that help?

Well I sort of did. Over about a year and from 30 different places...

You can buy something similar as an almost ready to go kit. But it has wrong components. And uses wrong frequencies, wrong cameras, etc. So you would end up replacing most of it later as you refined it.

More important though:
Any fit female neighbours living in the range of your quadcopter that enjoy topless tanning in the backyard during the summer?

Pic. 50kg, 5 feet 2 inches, very genuine. Lovely girl, still walks my dog 5 years after we split up. She teaches to degree level in a local school. But desperate for babies etc. So we had to agree to disagree! Babies not my thing.

No, women are hard work. And unfathomable, confused and never happy. And I am 53 and still dont know which way up they go.

And babies! No thanks. Rather stick to my helis/multi rotors/gliders and bar wenches...

Three things.

1. Why?

2. How many times did they do this and trash them before they got it right?

3. How they balance the damned pole...

Presumably "because they can"....

Good question, but the researchers probably aren't paying for the stuff so why should they care? I will say it looked like the room appeared to be set up w/ padded walls and floor so that unless they try to chop up the pole with the blades (which are presumably easy to replace) crashing might not do that much damage.
3. How they balance the damned pole...

Looked like they had some sort of camera on the units, which give them feedback on the pole position. From there it's presumably more or less the same sort of technique that people use to balance a baseball bat or other thing on their palm... Difference is that they had to actually figure out how to deliberately do what we learn to do by reflex... Also note that the copters are being computer controlled, not driven by people...

Seems cool that they can do it...

Just a fine looking woman. They all want kids, I have 4, now all grown and repopulating the world on their own. Though not equalling their own replacement yet, possibly not ever, and productive as well.
