Default wireless XYZ

This is page one of a new project-

Wireless XYZ, is nothing but a euphemism for strapping a burning laser to a radio controlled helicopter.

!Safety! This is a very dangerous project. Eye protection and a restricted operating environment are required!

If this was sold as a consumer product, the ads would say-"Now with 100% more blindness!!! Blind yourself and others!!! Impress girls, by blinding them!!". Followed by enough small print disclaimer to drowned a lawyer army.

Another important safety factor with a radio controlled device is programed fail safe function in the receiver(Rx). This means that if there is a loss of signal from the transmitter (Tx), the Rx defaults to a shutdown of the electronic speed control (esc) that is powering the laser module.
Related to this, is the issue of interference and error in the control signal. The radio setup that I'm using operates at 2.4GHZ utilizing DSM spread spectrum. The Rx is bound to the Tx, it's similar to the Rx having a URL like a website. The Tx sends it's commands discretely to it's Rx. I have used this radio to fly R/C aircraft countless hours at sometimes great distances, with no negative issues.

In the pic you can see the components:
(from the left) Twin rotor coaxial helicopter (radio controlled, gyro stabilized), wireless laser circuit (testing module(5mwAixiz), electronic speed control(14amp), receiver, 2s Lipo battery), Radio transmitter.

I hear you, for awhile I kept my receipts from the local hobby store, until my wife made me put a calculator to the entire pile :-[ Now I treat my receipts like nuclear waste should be - dilute and sequester (until a safe method for a solar one way exists)

This coaxial (Blade CX) can't take very much weight, but the stability is very good. I plan on having only one battery on the heli. A perfect opportunity to give Dr. Lava some of my money I won't need a heat sink just a couple of Al fins in the downwash of the rotors should cool any diode.

Very "interesting" idea PP. ;D I would've never thought of that.

I bought a Blade CP a long time ago but it was just too difficult to fly for me, so now it's just sitting in my room inside its box. I might sell it later on if I have no use for it, I guess I'll just stick to planes, I don't like helis as much.

Same here, The CP has plenty of power to cope with the weight of the laser and a video downlink for first person piloting, but I've had too many debris explosions for landings to feel comfortable attaching expensive components on it. I'm planning on building a large coaxial airframe. I won't compromise on the video downlink- Two camera stereo video goggles with gyro controlled pan/tilt. 8-)

That is so awesome, especially since he uses a gyro (it is a gyro right?) so that the camera moves when he moves his head.

Yes, a gyro mounted to the goggles "steers" (2) servos in a pan/tilt mount. The best part is that it's all off the shelf components. This is all my childhood fantasies come true. I really do love the Forums, we're the next big thing.
Check the credits at the end of the video, he specs all the components.

If you'll scroll down to anothonyrc's video "SlowstickIntheClouds", It's a big file, but the quality of the video is very nice. Check out the other videos in this forum as well

Wow, that's got to be expensive. Imagine if you had one with a BB gun attached to it!

I just wanted to share this post from "RC toys" in the Geek's corner:

I have a Walkera 60 completely upgraded with a t-rex retrofited aluminum head, align blushless motor, castle esc, thunderpower Lipo, futaba gyro, futaba 2.4 radio system, and carbon fiber blades. I've also rebuilt it about 50 times! It seems the electronics are always salvagable but the main gear, blades, frame and the rest of the heli gets destroyed when crashed. I have had it for a little over a year now and my skills have greatly improved. My teacher is trial and error! Costs me lots of $$$ but like I always say, a cool hobby is an expensive one! I like to fly it at the mountains over a cliff so I have lots of time for recovery if I screw up.

Oh yeah, I'm working on a 2 mirror laser show operated from rc. :P

Now that is a beautiful idea! Can you imagine a wireless XYZ laser show! Take it to the Grand Canyon or downtown Manhattan, a tight mountain valley covered in snow...
You could blow peoples minds. This needs to be incorporated into a swarmbot array with sound system and fog generating units to complete the party 8-)

I think that I will end up using these for switching the lasers as opposed to the esc.
