intensewalkera h copter 12mm v1.3 by intensewalkera Oct 14, 2012


intensewalkera h copter 12mm v1 radio controlled very much a V1 prototype, lots to add and tweak. its end game is for it to be a FPV h-copter. i thought id upload it anyway so youtube can reference this and thingiverse reference the youtube build. as i edit things, i will ensure only the latest files are available to D/L i have already altered them a fair bit, based on my own experiences in building it. uploading it gives others a chance to add their bits and pieces to it and hopefully develop it alot faster.

revised to version 1.3 new motor mounts to suit hextronik dt750 motor added and new drill template to give a larger gap from motor to bolt heads. use locknuts and washers when fixing anything to the pla to prevent is pulling through ie spreading the loads. now use three m3 bolts through the 3 motor mount holes on the hextronik fixing

revised to version 1.2 new front top cover plate added to work with my gopro camera test mount print the item with support and with its short edge on the bed, so its vertical as the stl shows, make sure the camera mount part is closest to the print bed too. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37010

revised to version 1.1 new motor mounts - still based on the original template new gopro front end added new battery tray, very basic- just glued to the top of the frame new battery tray, basic but 5mm taller to fit over higher electronics. new revised battery tray added, allows for a standard 45mm centres controller board to be added, in either diagonal or parallel orientation. 100mm long. just to give the hcopter a top cover of sorts. also allows wires from esc to pass through.

print out all the parts and follow my build along guide on youtube. print the motor mounts @ 100% print the rest at about 35%

main build list printed PLA ultimaker parts Hextronik dt750 motors 25/30a esc with bec (bec makes it easier to configure) 12x12x1mm wt aluminium SHS (see below for lengths) 2x450 Lg for the motor mounts (400 Lg if you use the PLA motor mounts) 2x415 Lg for the vertical body parts flight controller (i use the DJI Naza, expensive but excellent) receiver - Number of channels depends on your choice of flight controller transmitter - choice is endless Lipo battery pack - i use a 3 cell 5000mah (slightly too big and heavy, but it works) any questions on parts - let me know very much a prototype, i just wanted to make sure the concept worked. IT DOES WORK!! it flies and i am currently updating my youtube channel with the build along videos. see below links

i am currently making a 10mm framed h-copter using the identical method and will make a build video of that too, see here; http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32640 so that it may fill in some blanks on this series of videos. Good luck, happy building.

the stl files will differ slightly to my build video, due to the fact i have updated them as needed, i also added a gopro specific mount on the latter files. lots more updates to come, as and when time and testing allows. :-)

things to do- LOTS
