FPV at Valhalla

0

Friday’s weather started out quite miserably, so we only got to the Valhalla baseball fields at around 13:00.

However, the day really improved and we had lots of phun flying FPV planes and quadcopters.

Zer0T1lt recorded some footage using his GoPro and new gimbal and edited that into a great summary of the site and day:

Nico and I tried some formation flying and Nico edited the best scenes together – at some point his plane is so close to mine, you can read the writing on the wing!!!

H4H at Tech4Africa 2014

0

We have submitted two sessions to Tech4Africa – please vote!

A. Build your own drone

You cannot open a tech/news site without reading about a drone, UAV, UAS, multi-rotor, quad copter or flying robot. The headlines tend to be combat heavy, but the real applications is just being discovered – surveying, agriculture, photography, art, search-and-rescue, medicine, infra-structure etc. In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to build a working multi-rotor based drone. The demonstration will explain each of the components, sub-systems and showing step-by-step assembly. We hope to enable participants with a deep technical understanding of the technology and demystifying to the point where anyone can build their own drone.

B. 3D print a flying robot

3d printing is changing the way we think about manufacturing, design, construction, medicine and the list goes on. The best way to get into 3d printing is to 3d print! And we are planning a hands-on masterclass that will teach you how to 3d print, using the frame for a flying robot as the example model. We will explain the technology used in most desktop 3d printers, the materials that can be printed with, some 3d design basics, how to prepare the design, slice it, send it to the printer for materialization and then fly it.
