(octa) copter mockup

A project log for statomotorik

Statomotorik is a mechanism that rotates your phone so it lands flat on its back to prevent cracked screens.

These tiny quadcopters weigh about 20g in total and unfortunately don't provide enough lift to carry a smartphone - but you get the idea.

putting 8 motors (octacopter) on a frame made from straws should give enoug lift for about 15g payload. the maiden flight:
backside of an old iphone that was lying around.

It will for sure break the fall but it won't fly. (20g)

Maybe this is not the rout to go - but how could would it be if you could just place your phone in mid air ...
