This is the plan to build the Tiny Whoov (very first of its kind ;)
The Tiny Whoov is a nano remote controled hoovercraft which uses the power and control system of a tiny whoop or blade inductrix like nano quads (fpv or not).
It's a very simple 1 hour build ! Just cut the different parts out of a 5 or 6mm foam sheet (depron or paperfoam) and glue them together with hot glue gun (following the letters and for positioning). Paint it and add the electronics with the glue gun as well. Please have a close look at the pictures to understand what motor goes where (it took me some time and tests to figure this out ;)
FEW TIPS FOR THE BUILD :
1) get the right positioning for the motors !!
BACK MOTORS OF THE QUAD = THRUST AND DIRECTION
FRONT MOTORS OF THE QUAD = LIFT (hover)
2) if you use inductrix/whoop propellers > they work much better and blowing air towards the motors (like they do on the micro quad). If you reverse, you will lost efficiency.
3) try to keep it as light as possible (under 50gr for best performances)
4) You can add a "skirt" made of a plastic bag to make it even better, but it works very well without it.
Please leave me a feedback or comments if you like it !
Can't wait to see what you guys will make with this...
Enjoy ! Alex (@badassdrones on instagram)
