Descriptions du produit

A complete, DIY guide to building a custom quadcopter based on the Elev-8 kit from Parallax Learn how to create, customize, and experiment with your own quadcopter and let your creativity soar! Build Your Own Quadcopter: Power Up Your Designs with the Parallax Elev-8 shows you everything you need to know to get your multi-rotor machine off the ground. The design customizations examined in the book push the capabilities of the platforms in terms of lifting ability, power, and flight characteristics. This step-by-step guide covers remote video systems using the GoPro HD to obtain both real-time and recorded video. The author also explains quadcopter flight dynamics and provides tips on how to train to fly one safely and successfully. Step-by-step instructions with photographs show you how to build and customize your own multi-rotor copters Programming instructions are provided for the Parallax Propeller microcontroller Explains servos and servo controllers, as well as incorporating servos into the design to allow for greater capabilities Covers radio control systems and telemetry subsystems, as well as the motor control modules (ESCs) that function as interfaces between the motors and the microprocessors Uses relatively inexpensive and yet versatile platforms Introduces new, original design concepts developed by the author Features valuable tips and tricks learned from experience Provides a flexible, customizable platform for experiments, research, and invention

Awesome in-depth exploration of all aspects! 1 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I was surprised to see the two star review here, but I guess it is all about expectations. This book is the only one I've found that breaks down a VTOL UAV into its core components and drills down to bedrock on each one. This is currently my bible as I try to better understand how to manipulate and optimize my machine for my intended purpose - capturing high quality cinematic footage.

You can buy ARTF kits (almost ready to fly) and with a little soldering, a little programming to get the radio set up properly, and a lot of reading on countless discussion forums (to translate vague instructions not well translated into English) you can take to the air with reasonable competence. That seems to be all the two-star reviewer would like to accomplish at this point and that's fine, but you are going to need this book soon enough! These things fly great until they don't. Your idea of what you'd like to use your quadcopter for will change, and when it does, you can hunt for an overpriced RTF that's "close" to what you need, or you can tweak your craft on your own and get it exactly right. If the latter sounds more appealing to you, this book is for you.

I'm not even building an Elev-8 quadcopter - but the topics and the clear language in this book are universal. It's rare to find someone with this level of passion and knowledge about a technical subject who can also make it this accessible.

If nothing else, this book will expose you to questions you didn't even know to ask. I bought this elsewhere because of a gift card I was given, but I bought the tablet version. I think I will order a print edition here on Amazon as I expect to spend a lot of time in this book.

Have to be an aeronautical engineer to read this book 1 juin 2014
Par periomao - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I completely misunderstood the purpose of this book. I thought it was how to physically BUILD a quad not program it from scratch. I'm not saying it is not a good book to read if you are an aeronautical engineer with advanced programming skills, but it is not for ME. I have done programming my whole life but not this advanced. I will see if I can return it or wait until I advance my programming skills. I give it generously two stars because it was not adequately described.

Excellent Book...but not for beginners. 29 juin 2014
Par TheDuck - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a comprehensive and in depth look at every system and circuit needed to make a Elev-8 copter. I will admit it is not for people that are not somewhat familiar with engineering or technically inclined. I admit that I have a degree in engineering, but I knew nothing about RC planes and quadcopters. After reading this one book, I am comfortable talking about them with people that have built them and fly them. I will be ordering my Parallax copter next looks like a new design is in the works :)

This is an outstanding book for what it is. As someone with a background in computer science, some basic electronic engineering knowledge, and a ham radio license I found the material to be very approachable and a useful introduction to the underlying function of modern RC technology. I do not have nor expect to have the parallax product referenced in the book, so I was able to move quickly through sections which were specific to that hardware. The book would have been just as good if it left the parallax portions out, and even better if it replaced them with some more hardware agnostic material addressing i2c, sbus, and other common technologies in use today.

All in all, this book is the most technical book I have found on the topic and written in a way that someone new to RC but versed in adjacent field of knowledge could make great use of it. Well done to the author.

Great book! It is written by an Engineer so it probably goes a little deeper than most people want but the author explores some really cool options if the desire is there to mount a camera for FPV flying, GPS auto piloting, etc.
