On this video, the driving signals are generated by a electronic board used before on a robot (Startup). The brushless driver is drived by a servo motor signal-type. Everything is fixed on a Meccano structure (so heavy : 400gr). The motor was supplied by two laboratory power supplies in parallel (this motor needs more than 10A continuous to takeoff).
There were no control or regulation, the only objective was to see if it can takeoff; and it takes off! First successful test so. Our work continues on a "home made" driver based on a dsPIC30F4011 and 6 power MOSFETs. This will allow us to have a higly precise control and feedback on the motor (duty-cycle, torque, speed).
