Operation 'Origami' Completed!

A project log for Ai Equiped Wasp (and Asian Hornet) Sentry Gun

A powerful laser guided by cameras will vaporize these pests in flight. Hopefully.

A bit of whacking with a large hammer and some small spanners and the gimbal starts to take shape. The laser device has been tested and successfully burnt a hole in my carpet at distance = 1 metre.

Neat design!

Is the rotating platform stage heavy enough to cause wobble at all on the servos bearings?

  Are you sure? yes | no

there is a bit of wobble sometimes when the servo speed kicks in at resonant frequency so a bit of damping might be a good idea, but it's not too much of a problem :)
