Inspire 2 Clone?
« on: February 08, 2017, 08:52:26 AM »
So.. I'm already thinking about whats next!





I would love to have another go at the inspire and improve the 1st clones design / build / weight etc..   To do this I think the only way would be to buy / borrow one so I can get all the dimensions spot on.  Are all the measurements the same on a I1 and I2?  I've not done any reading yet but would love the challenge.  Anyone else fancy getting involved?

Hi Steve


Currently doing the Mavic and was going to do the Inspire next but if you did the 2 that would be fantastic and if it was as successful as your others would be a superb drone.

You did read my mind. I think this is going to be a great next project after we all have our Mavic flying and doing pirouettes in a close future. Count me in.

Hi Steve,

I am keen to get involved in anyway possible, unfortunately I do not own the Inspire 1 or 2 for us to evaluate.

I had been working on improving the arm transition mechanism, purchased several little servos motors (nema8 size), decent digital servo and driver boards to evaluate their ability to move the arms. Progress stopped at the moment to concentrate on getting my workshop up and running where I have a CNC mill.

Cheers
Dave.

Hey Dave (Busted44),

Many thanks for the donation it's been used to partly buy a DIY RC t-shirt ready for some videos I intend to do.. so if it doesn't fit I'll be coming to see you!   ;-p

I've changed your title and you're now an honorary member of DIY RC... Arise Sir Busted44 ;-)

I'm very interested in your results. I did try a stepper motor too in the early days but it just didnt have the torque the servos do. I think on the next one I'm going to bin the towerpro servo and go for something a bit more expensive and less chance of burning out.  Something like this maybe - https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbykingtm-hk15298-high-voltage-coreless-digital-servo-mg-bb-15kg-0-11sec-66g.html

Not even done much thinking yet.. but it's something I would love to do again.  Let me know your results.

Steve
