Here are some pictures of a tricopter I designed and cut the pieces out using my cnc router. The booms are foldable and the camera mount is vibration isolated. It is a very stable video platform
I designed a 2 axis simple camera gimbal for use with my DJI Naza hexacopter. Here are some pics of the build. I might post it to my thingiverse account. The gimbal works well using the DJI Naza controller. I also designed the landing gear and made it using HDPE on my CNC Router. The hexacopter flies well. Here is a video.
Here is one of the first boards I made where I used the router to remove all the excess copper. This is one of the original versions of the KK board using the gyros interals from the Hobbyking 401b gyro.
Here is an 8 shot magazine use to feed pellets to the popular QB78 air rifle. The magazine is held onto the holder with magnets. It really changes the rifle. You can quickly load pellets and shoot much faster then hand feeding. The mags are indexed using 3 small ball bearings with some silicone tube to act as a spring. It works quite well.
I’ve made about 3 of these now. Basically it is a pc power supply that I have added banana jack connectors to and a push button reset switch. I use these power supplies for the 3d printers and to supply power to my RC battery charger.
Here is a 3D printed rocket made out of PLA. I designed it and printed it in sections. It has flow 3 times now and is in great shape. I used D size estes rocket motors.
Here is a video of the first test flight.
I decided to design a pan/tilt antenna tracker for FPV. I wanted to use standard servos. The servos are all geared using 3D printed gears. The pan axis uses a ballbearing supported gear to help reduce unwanted oscillation then pan is stopped. I was planning to use the Eagletree system but have since sold it and use the FY-31AP system from http://shop.fyetech.com/
Here are some videos and pictures of the system I built. I am posting this entry a long time after the build so it isn’t a play by play log like you’ll be seeing in future posts.
Here is a mount for a GWS ducted fan that I designed. It is designed to be mounted on a pylon. I have a brushless motor in this one and printed a pair for use in a yet to be designed airframe.
