Pi Zero Drone Part 5: Testing...

Check out this video to see how the quadcopter is armed.

 

Arming: 

 

 

Quad copter test 1….FAIL

 

Crashing:

 

 

After this test the PXFmini GIPO pin connection sheared from the PCB board and became useless. But from the video evidence I suspect that the trim on the remote may have been to an extreme right and also a bad ESC calibration. I am waiting for a new PXFmini to come in and I will retry.

There have been some modifications of the design on the quad:

 

  • Shorter legs with Lipo Battery slot made from ABS plastic.
  • Roll cage that will save PXFmini from future crashes.
