The Blade Nano QF BNF Quadcopter is a spectacular piece of engineering and quite possibly the closest you will get to a handheld UAV in the next few years or so at least! The Blade Nano is compact enough and lightweight enough to allow it to be fully held in one hand. And its sleek small size ensures that it can easily be flown safely around your house. Even in the smallest of rooms! But small doesnt mean limited especially in the case of the Blade Nano QF BNF Quadcopter! Because of the built-in gyroscope plus a heap of other great features you will have the capability to pilot this incredible craft up to 300 m away. This is achieved by capitalizing on DSM2 or DSMX radio transmission technology.
So in a quadcopter each of the motors are configured such that they cancel one of the others out. So when you want to yaw (turn right or left) then two motors across from each other diagonally will reduce their speed and the other two across from each other will increase theirs. This maintains the lift necessary to maintain altitude but imparts angular torque to the aircraft which makes it turn. Now it would be impossible for a human to calculate exactly how much change in RPM to impart to a quadctopers individual motors to maintain control so these calculations are carried out by a flight control board. This board is usually equipped with pyrometers and sometimes accelerometers. It has software that controls the motors based on the position of the aircraft and user inputs from the transmitter.
There are a lot of quadcopters out there for beginners. The Smya X1 is one of the most popular. I like it because it has a 2.4GHz transmitter is very durable and very easy to fly. You can also make it do flips at the touch of a button to impress your friends. But recently I just got the Blade mQX and I must say I am quite impressed. It is actually similar in size to the Syma X1 but it boasts better performance with 4 brushed 8.5 mm motors 5.5 inch blades and a 4-in-1 receiver/ESCs/mixer/sensor that acts as flight control board. The built in DSM2 receiver is one thing I really like about the Blade mQX a lot of quadcopters come with proprietary transmitters and receivers and it can be difficult without hacking the hardware to make it compatible with your existing transmitter. With the Blade mQX you are able to bind it with any DSM2 compatible radio such as Spektrum radios.
There are some safety precautions to protect yourself as well as the machine from damaging itself and crash landing and also other people to get hurt. Remember to pull down the throttle to zero if you see your quadcopter going out of control and about to crash or collide with something. Always stay away from spinning propellers or do not handle a quadcopter when the propellers are rotating. This happens when youre trying to teach someone else to fly and then try to pick it up. When the transmitter is in someone elses hands and it is on the propellers can start spinning anytime so be very careful! Not everybody can fly a quadcopter with confidence because of a number of different controls its sophisticated design and intricate machinery. Even taking it off the ground and keeping it in the air without damaging objects that come in between is an art to master. Beginners especially find it really hard to fly a quadcopter without experiencing crash landing. Follow the above-mentioned guide if you are trying to polish your piloting skills or wish to master this art to enjoy the activity to its fullest.
