sno explorer sno explorer, tracked rc vehicle

objective of the project build a simple tracked rc vehicle using mostly 3d printed components. prototype a new¬†law regulating the use of larger rc quadcopters is looming over rc pilots in switzerland. this made me think about how i could reuse larger brushless motors in the future since i have many heavy models that will […]

historischer markt aarau 3d coin scanner

objective of the project to build a cheap 3d scanner to scan small objects, such as coins, at a very high resolution. scanning principle the scanner projects light onto the surface of an object such that only part of the object is illuminated and the rest remains dark. the transition from bright to dark is […]

switzerland european union switzerland – european union gear

objective of the project the original intent of the project was to develop a simple app to create noncircular gears. while the original project is still going on, the idea of the switzerland – european union gear is to show what is possible in a fun way. prototype the prototype of the switzerland – european […]

RCCarSmall_tiny rc car chassis 1:16

objective of the project to build a simple 1:16 rc model made of mostly 3d printed parts. design i am not really an rc car driver aficionado but i find it it very interesting to design and build rc cars. my previous rc car project, the 1:6 rc car chassis, took quite a long time […]

Bindli_total_smallest quadcopter #11 (micro fpv 150 mm)

a 3d printed quadcopter having an outer shell as its main support structure was the aim when i designed this small quadcopter. its main characteristics are: 150 mm diagonal motor distance 300 g takeoff weight 3″ propellers dys 1306-3100 kv motors dys 10 a blheli esc’s cc3d atom flight controller (running betaflight) frsky tfr6 receiver […]

210_quad_cat_pic quadcopter #10 (210 class)

the 250 quadcopters are great to take along on hikes for filming. but there is still room for further miniaturization without having to bullnose the 5 inch propellers. the 210 class appears to be pretty much the minimum that makes sense. so here is a homemade 210 class quadcopter. the size offers another advantage, at […]

quadcopter #9 (250 class)

the 250 size quadcopter seems to become a favorite among fpv pilots. this type is small, light, fast, agile and therefore lots of fun to fly. i tried it myself with the following setup: naze32 rev5 flight controller frsky tfr6 rc receiver 2206 2150kV multistar v2 motors turnigy plush 10amp esc’s mini cmos 520tvl fpv […]

v-tail rc plane v-tail rc plane

this is an attempt at building a simple and small fpv plane. simple because the wing is straight having the same clark y airfoil over the entire wing span. small because it has a wing span of 700 mm and weighs around 500 grams. the plane consists of six separate parts, the fuselage, the two […]

hexacopter folding multiwii hexacopter

after having built many different quadcopters it was about time to build something bigger and better. here it is my first foldable multiwii hexacopter. the motor mounts are made of 3d printed abs plastic. they are attached to 15 mm aluminum square tubes. the tubes are hinged to a center plate using 3d printed abs […]

rc car chassis 1:6

most components of the chassis are either 3d printed or laser cut. the laser cut pieces could as easily be built with a 3d printer. the other components such as the motor, wheels, etc. are either from traxxas or hobbyking. the design of the chassis was created in creo elements express 4.0 from ptc. it […]
