simple question now: I have a small electric helicopter that heeps iself pretty level with no help from me. Just balanced and it hangs from the rotors I guess. Is there anything in that?
I think you are right. it also have the tail rotor to keep it from spinning the opposite way of the rotor. that same rotor can turn the copter around its own axis(which goes through the center of the lift rotor).
This post might get more responses in a hardware area by the way - not sure how you'd get it moved though.
I think i've found a way, so I don't really need help no more. I think.
Can just leave the post open, just in case anyone have something.
Thanks for your help.
I can not believe the stuff you can buy these days! You probably know you can buy two axis gyros from sparkfun but i would never have dreamed it. In their writeup it ref's RC helicopters so it must be a well-known application. Maybe you could fire a question to their customer support or see if they have a forum you could post in.
That is one cheap gyro. but looks like it does'nt got any electronics on it. then its worth paying a couple of dollars extra to get it all on one board. But thanks. It would have been great to use with the project:D
