In the beginning of this year I was really amazed by the fast and successive achievements SpaceX made. So I decided I wanted to do a SpaceX related project. Being a SpaceX fan for a few year now, I decided to go for the Falcon 9 inspired look on my build. I'm referring to 'inspired' because i took some general proportion from the Falcon 9 rocket but had to make a lot of changes to get the "rocket" functional on the scale I was intending to build it.
The "rocket" has a deployable landing gear, thrust vector control unit and uses a 6s 80mm 12 blade fan capable of 2.5 kg of thrust. The thrust vector control unit is being controlled by a Pixhawk X4 running Ardupilot V4.0.4 which is configured as a single copter. I'm essentially building a single copter in the shape of a rocket.
The fusion 360 source file option includes these formats:
-.zip (containing .ipt and .iam files)
Part list, schematics, code and more info about this project can be found here
The 3D-printers, tools and materials I'm using for these projects can be found here: Tools and materials – bbprojects
Note: This is not a physical product. When you're purchasing the STL or Fusion 360 source files you will be able to download these files. A physical product will not be send to your address.
