This is the ANTI-menu. It's just here to stop the page falling over when I put in menu items.
And because Loki hasn't given me the title bar image for this side yet.

ALL HAIL ZOGRIM!

My categories weren't displaying right but something seems wrong with calling.. '$cats = trim($cats, ", ");'

One should not make a habit of trimming cats.

So I took my hexacopter out to the farm to test fly it after my dad very kindly built me some reverse thread prop mounts so that I don't have the damn things coming off mid-air.
Because I still don't know where my voltage and current sensors are (shipped from sparkfun a few weeks ago), I couldn't fly it too far or too hard because I didn't know when the battery was going to cut out.
Anyway, I know you're only here to see the pics and video so....



I have done no real calibration or setup yet so I'll do that during the week and have a new awesome video at the end of next weekend.

Crikey!
We've just stumbled upon the nest of the long-legged-hexacopter.. They're not normally seen in the wild. You have to be careful with these things as they'll give you a nasty bite.


Strewth!

New version. Now I'm just being silly..
Total weight 234g (without battery). Adding a battery makes it 279g.
The 19mm balsa frame is strong enough (basically just glued and cable tied together) to survive falling with that amount of weight.
The pool noodle bumpers make this an ideal heli to learn to fly. No more broken props or motors. There are bamboo skewers threaded through the frame that hold them in place.
Cost of this one is the same as the last (I'm using the same parts, sans camera at the moment) so < $100 in parts.

Flying in gusty wind can be a bit interesting but even as a novice pilot I was able to keep control.
