Gathering of the Tweakers – Quadrocopter builder Cyrus the Virus




The start of a new season Gathering of the Tweakers we kick off with Kate, Cyrus the Virus on the forum. He is since 2003 a member of Tweakers and analog designer by profession. His hobby consists of computing in general, but especially jobs with electronics he likes.

Jeroen so bought no ready-made quadrocopter, but began a few years ago to build one, if learning project. Before that, he designed almost all software and electronics itself, with most of time went into making the engine controller and the flight controller. The frame he made in the first instance itself, but ransom was later still a better choice.

In this video we visit Jeroen home where he tells more about the origin of his hobby. Of course we run all parts of his drone along and he shows how the self-written control software does its job. Of course, we then go with his creation into the sky to see how he brings in practice from it. Would you after watching this episode to find out more about making drones and are you curious about other projects of tweakers in this corner, take a look at certain Big Drone / Multi Rotor topic .

For new episodes, we are still looking for tweakers with a unique hobby or collection. Did or do you know one who fits this profile and you want to help us, please leave a message in the comments or via email .
