A Few Polishing Touches and a Mini Conversion
At this point, William was extremely happy with his tri-copter, and he wanted to create a guide to give others the opportunity to build their own Shrediquette. First, he had a few loose ends he wanted to clean up.
He decided to go all out and redesign his chassis to make it as light as possible, using carbon fiber coated balsa wood. This not only let it keep its sophisticated look, but also reduced its overall weight by a third, further improving its performance. He also knew that he had to redesign his PCB breadboard to make things clear enough in his guide.
Pretty soon, Shrediquette was catching some attention and it wasn't long before Scorpion, a prestigious R/C parts manufacturer, offered William a few brand-new motors, including the SII-2212-960KV, which lead to a win in a drag race competition against several "more powerful" quad-copter opponents.
Proud of the success of his project, William has also created a Shrediquette DLXm, which is a micro version of the original Shrediquette. The DLXm is small enough to sit in the palm of your hand and powerful enough to lift a mounted 1080p HD camera. While it isn't the world's smallest flying camera, it is the world's smallest high-performance flying HD camera.
