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

  • Garud-500 DIY Drone build

    Kavita Arora03/10/2020 at 19:01 0 comments

    During the first week of March 2020, a few of us from Makespace and Open Source Creativity, decided to build a new DIY Quadcopter based on the Garud-500 DIY Drone design (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2453393/files). 

    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.

Really cool. Can you conduct this as a workshop for children? I frequently find that most workshops for children in the maker space are purely commercial with little passion to teach. As a result, the workshops are inadequate and half baked leaving children and parents hanging. Wish we had more Arvind Guptas in this space too.
