The eolo camera machine is getting closer, take a look and give me your helpful criticisms before I get further along.

That's a very nice work you made Stet,

Hope the shots will be as amazing as the setup, but they surely will. What's the red thing right under your head block? You have two receivers, so you're probably using a tray with two Tx right? What did you chose for the tail drive, heliup wire or robbe torque tube?

This prove the eolo to be an amazing machine.

The red thing is a Raptor 30 shaft collar. this supports the bottom of the "unsupported collet" portion of the head. For some reason, I do not like hanging the whole works on a single, all threaded 2mm bolt. I feel this might strengthen the setup. A better way would be to do the same thing, but drill so that the collar sits right over the jesus bolt hole, and use a longer jesus bolt.

Although I can set it up for all controls on one transmitter, I would need some sort of eyetop setup and I am not ready for all that, so the second tx will be operated by a second individual looking at the downlink screen (the only part of the system I am still trying to get hooked up right)

I am running the Robbe torque tube in this instance, and during today's tests it showed no signs of vibration whatsoever

Hi Stet,

That things got more wires than a power grid. Looks like fun though. You should get some nice pics of the blonde on the 5th floor before she works out what it is

Hi Stet,

Yesterday I got to do some testing with my camera rig in a sports hall nearby. I put on my data logger and measured amp draws with and without camera.

First without camera:

I had to adjust the gyro at first so the first 16 minutes are only take offs and landings. The last part is mostly hovering and it draws about 16 amps. I did one climbout mid flight that drew about 29 amps.

Then with camera rig (weighs about 350 grams with cam):

Now it draws about 18/19 amps in hover and 32 in climbouts. Not bad at all.

It was really cool flying inside the sports hall without any wind. I could trim it so that it would just hang in the air - I am impressed at how stable it is. I could climb up to the roof and just pan the camera around with the rudder - almost looked like the cam was mounted to a pole or something. Unfortunately I tried to hang the mount in some stiff rubber bands and that didnt work to well - vibrations made the video I took really fuzzy. I'll try some fuel tubing next time, or just zip ties...

Here is the first pic taken with the "ViStet Cameolo". Off the ground but not by much until I get stability issues wrapped up.

What this shows is that the camera is working and there is no vibration making it's way to the camera which was my biggest worry.

I'm now using a 3S2P prolite which makes it almost as light as a regular eolo. Still having some instability in hover due to the links not yet loosening up on the flybar connection.

Completely redid the tray, moving the BEC's to the bottom and the battery to the top to reduce the pendulum effect.

I'll have some new pics of the mechanics in my gallery shortly.

Nice photo, I hope you get your issues worked out. I too had serious problems with tight links in the beginning with my Eolo and especially on the flybar. I ended up taking the flybar off and polishing the balls and using some graphite lube on them and that has helped out alot. I have my battery mounted high on the nose of my Eolo and that may account for some of the twitchieness when in a hover. I wish you the best of success in your new AP ship!

yeah, don't tell me why it sucks, I know, but for the third flight taking pictures, I'm happy. Now to get higher and to get better resolution out of the camera.

Green are plant waste from the yeard, blue is recycle and the rest are for evil trash. Probably all the ashes from the money they had to burn.

Here is the latest shot, testing different settings on the camera, and stabilizer gain settings. This shot was probably from 100 feet up

Dumpy little house
How about this shot?

No way could we have shot this with a 15 pound loud camera ship.

Up and down in about 2 minutes.

General laser is great as long as the land is flat

That shot was on a 60 degree slope, so you can't use it there.

Hmmm, so I guess a gyro based stabilizer would be better...
The Eolo is just perfect for those tight spaces
