    Drones/Planes

    This is the thread for all things flown in the sky. Let's see those skybirds, cool drone setups.

    Don’t have but do want, mostly to film my local disc golf courses. Used to be excited about using them to film paintball but it’s been a while since I cared that much about pb

        Eh, a bunch of my pictrues were too big apparently, I'll put em up and resize somewhere

      I love photos and videos taken from a bird's eye view. Unfortunately, not all regions and not all locations can fly a drone. But I bought myself a quadcopter anyway. The decision was made when I read this review https://homemakerguide.com/best-drone-camera/. I bought myself a DJI Mavic Air Quadcopter - it flies smoothly, the connection with the remote control is stable. Of course, it's quite expensive, but it's better than buying a cheap one and losing it in a month or two.

        Like what you've got there RuleOfSines .

        I am actually looking to build my first FPV drone. I can't afford to fly right now and am trying to scratch that itch so I think it'll be neat, plus something to tinker with. I did buy a controller and am gonna put a little time in a sim to get the basics down before I build one. I think I might just try and build a 5" one so it'll be easier to work on, plus I don't like spending a little and then a lot later to get what I really should have got in the first place.

          The bigger drones are definitely easier to work on, and generally easier to fly as well. Plus you get the bonus of being able to fit a big enough battery to get some decent flight time.

          Here's a close up of one of my micro motors, soldering these little wires is a great time:

            Yea I might go for a tiny one later and start a little bigger. My radio is supposed to be here today so I'll get that setup up and play around in the sim for a bit before I pick parts. Thinking of building this as a starter.

              That is a good solid start, that frame style is tried and tested, and should be durable and stable. If all the components are compatible, you could even start with a 3S battery before going to 6S, for a bit tamer flight characteristics.

                I’ve got a Mavic and a smaller Mini. With work I sometimes get drive around the province and will stop (time permitting) and fly the Mavic in the middle of nowhere. It’s pretty fun to do and have some nice footage that I’ve never shared. I should post up some video of it at some point.

                The Mini I bought because it’s 5 grams under the general drone laws, meaning it can be used around people etc. Used it very little, but extremely impressed. Indoors the Macic’s wash would make flight a little tricky in hallways, etc but the Mini is that much smaller.

                  I've built a couple cheap mini-whoops out of Eachine E010s, but it's been years since I've messed with them.

                  I got into filming paintball when I realized I could bolt one of my cheap GoPro knockoffs to a Syma X8, and later an MJX Bugs3.

                  Nowadays I use a Parrot Anafi. Having a properly-gimbaled camera makes a world of difference.
