As many of you may know we have had a Red ONE since they were released. We recently upgraded to a Red Epic because the Red One is just too big to fly safely. Yes, some poeple have done it but its not something we felt comfortable with. Red finally got us our Epic-X and at 5lb dry its going to be easy to get it going in the air.
Check out the video.
The system md4-1000 is a AUMAV (Autonomous Unmanned Micro Aerial Vehicle) designed to perform tasks in the field of documentation uav, coordination uav, exploration uav, surveying uav, communication uav, inspection uav and observation uav.
A modular payload concept allows the the bigger drone as well to carry a most diverse range of imaging, video and other sensor systems. The flight characteristics in general remain quite similar to its little sister md4-200: But in comparison the md4-1000 carries five times the payload and is able to fly not only faster, higher and farther away but also over much longer spans of time.
Controlling it is still as easy as the uav md4‑200 in spite of its sheer power.
Head Speed Tachometer is used to measure the headspeed of your r/c-helicopter. The sound of the blades will be analyzed and the according headspeed will be calculated.
Using Settings you can choose between standard (rpm up to 4000) and micro sized (rpm up to 8000) helicopter and setup the number of blades between 2 and 5. Before starting the measuring you have to set an estimated headspeed. You can expect most accurate measurings if set inside the range of +/- 500rpm to your real headspeed.
