Do you remember TEGO??? It was involved in a small accident during the Glasgow Science Festival… and one of the arms was not able to continue fighting 🙁
But, for my fortune, I have to my disposition a awesome Makebot Replicator 2, and appart of making combs and lots of useless things, the main objetive of this printer is to do this kind of stuff… so, at this instance I want to test the feasibility of using a 3D printer to make things fly, so I started printing.
The main body parts were easy to peel off the platform, but the arms were a CHALLENGE… I broke 2 of them trying to peel them off. And then I had to tear appart TEGO (ESC, motors, cables, FC, everything) and put it in the new frame. I did a small video testing the frame, it vibrates a little bit, but in general is ok, now with this experience, I’ll procede to make my own frame with a especial mechanical connector I found on the internet!!! 😉 Keep posted!!!!
