    Help! Y3 VTOL Plane pitch oscillation

    I’m developing the Y3 tilt VTOL plane. I have encountered a problem with the pitch axis, which exhibits oscillations when the plane is flying in the air. I have attempted to modify the PID values several times, but the oscillations remain. I would appreciate any help or guidance on how to...

    Attempt to build and fly a bi-copter VTOL

    A number of years ago I wanted to explore the area of bi-copter VTOL's and was unsuccessful due to vibrations problems I could not solve which caused wild gyrations and frustrations with the FC. Fortunate that I put aside the beast and going to attack it for the third time. In the meantime...

    CL 84 Dynavert vtol

    I thought I would start a thread on this project cause I think it’s really cool and comes with unique challenges. So far I’ve built a tricopter to get the hover to a place I can work with to add a fuse and wings. That was maybe 2 weeks ago. I then built the fuse and wings and proceeded to hover...

    Super Stol Prototypes

    I like building prototype and experimental planes from history and i stumbled upon a picture of a dornier do 31 VTOL cargo plane and it got me looking at the dornier company. although i would love to build a do 31, the VTOL programming is beyond me.... however i was looking at some other stol...

    RC Starhopper

    In anticipation of SpaceX's sn8 15km starship hop, I've decided to start my own space program;) First up, we need to start small, so I'll be building the famous 'starhopper' vehicle: After this, I would like to move to a full 'starship' that can fly up vertically, parachute down, then land...

    AN EDF STOL---- result of an vtol failure

    Failure Equals Success Seven years ago this project was a result of using an EDF with a VTOL concept which failed and an offshoot that gave me a new STOL project that is really different and also a first. Anyway, look at the beginning of the video and you see the EDF rotate(using the rudder)...

    Hi all, I am looking to build my own xvert. I am thinking of using hobby eagle a3 6axis gyro.It has auto hover mode. I am trying to figure out how i would set two mottors to act as yaw (rudder) through the gyro. If anyone knows or done this. Let me know.. A) is the hobby eagle the wrong gyro for...
