A four rotor aerial vehicle with a first person camera view, how does it sound? You can get some of the best aerial views of the city, the tall buildings, the central parks, the lakes and everything that seems so vast. Imagine you are controlling one such powerful aerial camera carrying vehicle and bammm!!!! It suddenly crashes right in front of you. Almost giving you a heart attack, this crash incident will be putting a hefty charge to your pocket and will take some good time to get repaired. When the gadget comes back to you, you would want to make sure that the same error doesn’t happen. Seeking out the causes for the crash would be the best way to prevent it. A similar case about a quad copter crashing is detailed in this blog by Steve Lodefink.
Steve got a FPV Quadcopter which crashed down on its maiden flight. In his blog, Steve details with the smooth take off that the vehicle took and the moment when it suddenly got jammed and crashed right down. Sudden jamming is something which can pop up a number of questions which might point to some serious problems. What problem did Steve encounter here?
On inspecting the crash, he also took the ambient condition of the flight and found out local radar to be the reason for the crash. What comes up in this whole wreck investigation is how deep can be the impact of interference on radio waves. Also, one can find immense numbers of DIY that detail with how to create such marvelous aerial vehicles but maintaining their superb flight quality all the time is a big challenge. From driving electronics circuitry to the radio wave based signal communication, the gadget needs to have all the parameters in the best of states of every flight. Keeping such investigations in mind would not only help decide in what way one should plan the flight but would filter out the locations of such flights.
If you are thinking to make a quadcopter, be prepared!!: the process is toiling!!
The good part is here!! Quadcopter has been repaired and it has taken several flights. Check these videos out to know more!!
