Hello, I'm designing a drone for the exploration of caves and observation of animals in their natural habitat. Yet, I always think I missed something, what kind of features you think would be the best? Should it have legs or wheels? If legs how many?
I know I should put a cable on it to be able to pull it back, i has to be able to hold a camera (GoPro type), a hygrometer, a thermometer.
I feel like it has to be guided via cable to prevent any lost of control if out of bounds for the signal. It's also a security system for the drone.
So I'm asking you kind sirs, do you have any ideas?
It depends on the terrain
Wheel dependent drone can also surf terrain with obstacles,A Paper published on mechanical design journal showed a mechansim that u can use as a base to model ur draone on
Hi Aymeric. Did you build the drone? I'm interested to see final result.
I'm only experienced in building FPV drones, check the guide here:
I'm now planing to build a bigger rig which could hold HD camera and different sensors. Regarding loss of control, you must take extra precautions while flying. For flying beyond 500m/long range flying - consider 1.2 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies.
Well I built the drone (partially). I'll try to recover it from my college.
It's not great, but I'm still quite proud of what we've done my mates and I
I'll send you the current and final result as well.
