[DIY] Inspire 1 question
« on: January 03, 2017, 06:10:26 PM »
Good evening everyone,

First of all sorry for my English, I am French ...

For a long time I went through this universe of do-it-yourself, rocket launcher, potato thrower, photography and so on.
So over time, I recently invested in a 3D printer (Anet A6 custum).
For about 2 years, I wanted to build a drone for me!
But I did not find anything that interested me, I started to draw one, with real curve that really interested me, then lack of time, money here ...

Then while wandering around on something, I found plans for an "Inspire 1", and then I found it demonic!
And it is while doing research on Google, that I came across this little forum that looks cosie, so I would like to make my place!

I created this post because I ask all sorts of questions, and I would like to find answers (it is not for lack of not having searched) without polluting another topic.

My main question, the one where I failed to find an answer is:

Which flight controller is used? There are about twenty on the market, so why take a Naze V2 rather than a Naza 32? I would like to understand, I try to discover all this little by little;)

Hey and welcome to the forums.

You can fit any flight controller you want.  At the time the naza32 had very poor gps coding and I had a v1 naza (flashed to v2) already.  I think you can now load up inav firmware which is completely rewrote GPS code so should be alot better.  Don't forget this project was done over 18 months that ago.. only recently more flight controllers have become available. Would love to see what you end up fitting and do the forget to post a dairy :-)
If you use any of my designs and can afford to donate to help pay for this site and the filament, or just buy me a beer then please click on the link below, enter an amount and donate what you want.

Awesome !

I could have better answer from you haha.
I doubted that we could put this or that flight controller, but we must reconsider the structure of the chassis to integrate all that (well that is not a worry with the stl and solidworks hehe).
Do you have links under the elbow for flight controller firmwares? History to familiarize myself with all this ...

In any case I like this forum, it seems very cosie.

You conil it the 1.4 or the 1.5 to leave on a stable basis?

Welcome,


I plan to fit a Naza V2 into mine. I also have a CC3D which I think is the same size as the Naze32 and that would fit no problem .


Edit STL in Solidworks, have you tried it? I did but its a pain.


Cheers

Yes! I do it often enough for parts on Thingiverse, do you want help?


We can do an exchange to explain a little about the flight controllers etc and how I could do my project...

Smirpad,


Of course, I will help as best I can, my experience is only with the Naza and CC3D but I know what features to look for when looking at other controllers.


My first question is, how much experience do you have flying remote control quadcopters or helicopters?


I have loads of questions about editing stl files in Solidworks but I will do a bit of home work first rather than bombard you with silly questions.


Cheers
I

Hey !

Well, I think you can say that I have the same level as you for solidworks hehe ...

If you have Facebook, we could do a question exchange "beast"? I would answer this on solidworks and you on controllers etc?

Hi,


Best keep the RC questions on the forum, that way you will get more opinions.


What level are you with remote control quads and stuff?


Cheers

Hey,

Okay no worries then ... I understand how it works, I have a base in mech, material resistance, metallurgy, but in drone I never built, just interested etc. I know this is ambitious haha

Smirpab, When I finished my Inspire 1,  one year after I built my first 3D printer, I didn't know how to fly it, so I asked a guy across the street to fly it for me for my first video which now has almost 5000 views. I am still learning to fly it properly. I found here all the information I needed and also asked a lot of questions but after read almost all of the posts.
