The plan what to hang batteries on the landing gear for easier changes and more batteries. I didn’t know if I’d need 6 batteries for a 20 min flight. 2series 3 parallel. I hung the copter by a string centered on the main shaft. To see what the cg was. As long as it is all vertical weight and I’m not doing eratic flying couldn’t see the harm. Might make heli react slower but under the belly is gonna be the gimbal I am designing for my odd shaped sensor we spoke of before.
Me being a noon and everyone saying its gonna crash. And as the motor cycle saying goes it’s not if but when. So I put it in the battery hold to protect it. I ran all high voltage to the nose I nfrong of the motor to get away from rf. I put radios on the back and below to get distance from rf. Had to plan on the worst case because I had no clue how sensitive a these sensors were.
On another note. Iv had 3 close calls and 1 crash due to battery voltage telemetry. I know the yaapu has lots of neat features. I think the auto rotate rpm would be cool I bought an align hall effect sensor. But looks like I need to buy the gas suite to make it work. Also the last GPS coordinates for a crashed heli. But on a battery machine battery knowledge is king. If I can’t figure that out I’m going to have to get a Bluetooth ear bud to listen to the computer warnings since radio will be in my hand but way behind
