Few questions(assuming you designed and built it, not bought), this is incredibly intriguing as i am working on something slightly related.
-Why not opt for 4xrotors each pair with an opposite tilt direction? ie, one pair N-S and one E-W for omni directional control.
-Why have such a small wingspan? Obviously size is a large component, but stability seems to suffer
-What kind of battery and mah are you using? Those motors sound like they suck a fair bit of juice at higher RPM's
Cheers dude, looks like a really decent concept.
I'm thinking of making a ball-shaped wire frame around it so I won't be concerned about crashes during tests and such.I recently saw a toy helicopter of sorts with a large plastic mesh ball around it (nearly bought it out of sheer curiosity ) - wonder how it affects aerodynamics though.
I'd think that hanging it from a high ceiling in a thin bungie cord (climbing gear shop) would do for initial tests?
I used to own a helicopter with something like this, sort of an atom looking shield around it comprised of a very light but rigid plastic, didn't seem to affect aerodynamics much, unless at higher speeds. Damage was definitely saved at low altitudes, though.
