Star Wars Rey's Speeder Quadcopter

Prints (1)

Description

This is custom quadcopter inspired by Rey's Speeder Bike from new Episode 7 Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer.

I designed it in SketchUp and 3d printed first prototype and tested it myself. You can read more about this and other projects on my website http://themodelmaker.net/reys-speeder-quadcopter/

or in this short video showing close ups and work in progress photos herehttps://youtu.be/79Qyur3cBew and flying footage here https://youtu.be/nkNbBWaXB5M

The electronics I am using are:

Flight controller CC3d http://goo.gl/Vv9ZV1 Budget Transmitter and receiver http://goo.gl/SL77iS or more expensive Taranis http://goo.gl/igGYoH

Motors I used here were DYS 2300KV but they are too weak for this weight (740g total). I started with 5inch propellers but it was very jumpy. I replaced them with 6inch 6045 and it flies very well, here is combo with 16A escs: goo.gl/Ty8OUx The motors didn't get hot, but it is quite an effort for 80W motors. I may upgrade to SunnySky http://goo.gl/GW2yKa 20A Little Bee ESC like this http://goo.gl/8Pg7ap

I am using 1500A battery http://goo.gl/RGkxT7 but the compartment is big enough for different models.

They are affiliate links so I will be getting points or small percentage of sales but your own price will not change because of that. This small profit will help me to experiment more with electronics and build other custom models in future ( I have 2 more ideas for movie inspired flying objects on my list of things to do, just need time to make it). If you want to build your Speeder or racing quadcopter and at the same time support me, please use provided links to purchase your parts or any other things you are interested in.
