FAA allows first commercial drone flights over land
Hey now! Great news. Baby steps, but hopefully we will start getting some serious movement into certifications and permits. There are a lot of opportunities for applying the technology in unsafe environments or low budget projects.
But I have more photos. Detailed ones that I took while rebuilding the quad.
I chose zip ties because these are low quality and will, hopefully, break far faster than the motor shaft. I would much prefer that in the even of a crash the mount breaks off rather than the motor breaking.
In this instance you can see where the cables are not matched up by color. This motor is 'motor 1' and in my set up it is a counter clockwise motor. So by reversing two of the cables I get the correct direction.
