We are not a makerspace, but a "universe of makers". Space-agnostic, we don't believe that makerspaces have to be limited to one specific location in the physical world! Our story began in 2013 when we created a community of online makers, hackers and DIYers on facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/blrmakespace. We regularly plan events, workshops and projects as of now in Bangalore, India. Check out our past (and upcoming) workshops @ www.instamojo.com/kavitaarora
After approximately 26 hours of 3D Printing using clear and black PETG filament, we came up with a bottom plate, top plate and 4 arms to assemble the drone frame. The best part about the 3D model was the fact that each of the arms had their own landing gear as part of the arm design.
We used a Naze32 10DOF (Flip32) Clone for a flight controller, four 30A ESCs, four 10-inch black plastic propellers, a 2200 mAh LiPo battery, and four DYS G-Power D2822 1100kv Brushless Motors. Using an old power distribution board from an F450 drone kit, we soldered the respective positive and negative power leads of the ESC to the requisite pads, and it proved to be an effective hack to the lack of having a designated power distribution board.
After securing the bottom and top plates of the quadcopter using M5 35mm hex bolts and nuts, we took a test flight of the DIY Drone, using a FlySky FS-i6 Radio Transmitter. Pictures attached to this hackerspace log.
