Quadrocopter build manual

  1. 1. Lenn Tilley Manual quadrocopter build Jan Folens Olivier De Biedinsdag 22 januari 13
  2. 2. Components • First of all it is important to know which components you need and what they are. This site is a good reference. • Here you can find a useful tool to see if it is possible to fly, if you have enough power etc. • On the next slide you can see which parts we’ve selected.dinsdag 22 januari 13
  3. 3. Components • Here you can find a list of the components we used: ✦ 5 motors : Turnigy D2836/9 950KV Brushless Outrunner Motor - 23A max ✦ 1 charger for lipo :Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ accessories ✦ 1 Transmitter and 8ch receiver : Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 1) (v2 Firmware) ✦ 2 batteries : Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 30C Lipo Pack ✦ 4 ESC motor controllers : Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp Multi-rotor Brushless ESC 2-4S ✦ 1 safety bag for charging lipo betteries : Lithium Polymer Charge Pack 18x22cm Sack ✦ 1 Lipo alarm : On Board Lipoly Low Voltage Alarm (2s~4s) ✦ 3 sets of 4 propellers : 10x4.5 SF Props 2pc Standard Rotation/2 pc RH Rotation (Blue) ✦ 1 breadboard with components : Flight controller based on arduino with 6 DOF imu soldereddinsdag 22 januari 13

  5. 5. Step 1:Frame • Before you can start with connecting all of your components you need to build a frame. We builded our own frame. The files for the laser cutter are available here. • This is the frame you will get if you build our frame.dinsdag 22 januari 13
  6. 6. Step 2: Mounting the parts • Here you can see a video where we mount all the parts to the frame • Invoegen van filmpje waarbij we de onderdelen op het frame plaatsendinsdag 22 januari 13
  7. 7. Step 3: Connecting all parts • Schematics of the connected partsdinsdag 22 januari 13
  8. 8. Step 4: Uploading the software • To upload a program to the arduino breadboard we need the arduino software. • You also need the multiwii software. • Adjusting the code trough the multiwii config file. You can find information about this process here.dinsdag 22 januari 13
  9. 9. Step 5: Preparing the parts • Setting up the transmitter and receiver • Bounding the transmitter (Turnigy 9x 9Ch Transmitter) with the receiver (Turnigy 9X8C-V2 8-channel receiver) • explanation about the system setting of the transmitter (turnigy DX9) • Initialise and programming the ESC’s • Programming the ESCs with the remote control. You repeat this step for every ESC connected with a motor. • Final settings and calibration trough multiwii GUI. • For calibration and adding functions to the program you can use the multiwii GUI. Here you can find a detailed description. Make sure your sensors are defined good. You can change them in the program by adding a “-” or delete it in the config.ino file of the arduino program.dinsdag 22 januari 13
  10. 10. Step 5: Test flight • Now you are ready for your first test flight. • If he flies smooth. We can start the PID regulation process. This process is described in this movie.dinsdag 22 januari 13
