Thank you this information will be very useful when I get back to building a larger version of the Flying Pancake for verticle take off as the manual attempt was a disaster
I have bought a small version of the KK2 board from Banggood for just under £12.00 and a couple more KK2 hard cases from Hobby King for just under £4.00 each, as I have the programmer for the hard case they come cheap.
I`m already thinking of wrapping some depron wings and fuselage around a T-copter frame to make a VTOL aircraft. I figure on running the rear motor as a pusher that swivels down and two counter rotating motors that swivel up on the wings.
Sounds very interesting. Try to get a couple of projects under your belt getting to understand the KK2 abilities before the pancake.
This is my latest using aero version which requires 3 axis control in hover, transition and forward flight. Handles the wind and even does acrobatics. Designer gives little info(I agree with him) and he says you should be able to do it yourself when you understand the board.
It has been said, "The life of a VTOL is short lived" and I will add it could do damage if it oscillates wildly in hover. They have 10 x 3.8 props. Notice one prop up, the other down. Motor mount is on metal gear servo. Blew out plastic gear when rotating.
I like to design and fly unique planes.
