Micro quadcopter balance

The small T shapes protruding from the Wasp 110 carbon frame are quite handy for many purposes, including balancing the quadcopter center of gravity.

It’s not perfect because the two-point support given by the wires provides a bit of extra stability. It still gives valuable information as to whether the craft is tail or nose heavy.

The featured quadcopter is nothing fancy, it is a transplant of a Hubsan X4 flight controller board, motors and propellers to the Wasp 110 carbon fiber frame from SOSx.

The FPV camera, VTX and antenna is the Spektrum VA1100 bundle. I use a separate 1S LiPo to power the FPV subsystem.

AUW is 53.5 grams and motor to motor length is 110 mm.

The balancing rig is made out of MakerBeam parts.
