I am currently planning to build a mini jet engine quad. This is an experiment so that i can learn more about the development of quads. Anyone having apt knowledge contact me. I would like some support and when successful would help you get your credit too. Thanks in advance.
That sounds messy, maybe a single jet for forward thrust & props handling the balance, or trying to.
4 jets is a vtol with servos for forwarding thrust. I could see big problems with turning that unless you have 4 separate vectoring jets. Alot goes into just one as its 4 seperate servos. Upside is just one ducted fan. Maybe take a look at pavel scrypalksi on YT he built one.
it's not jet engine though but EDF
electric ducted fan. Maybe beyond this site, me anyway. 16 servo's no-one builds boards for that. Single vectoring fan yes.
You Naysayers scared him away Now we will never know.
Lets see one jet engine feeding a 4 way manifold with vectored thrust. Simple huh
Take the same software and hardware and let the ESCs control the motors that do the vectored thrust.
Piece of cake right......................Where is Macgyver.
This coming from a guy who did not know about VTX channels huh LOL
Naw man you pitch forward you go forward. The flight controller would handle it the same only instead of using props for upward thrust you're using jet engines for thrust. Don't know if it would be possible but it would be fun to try.
Original post said jet engine I thought he meant fuel & not a ducted fan.
ducted fans would be just a quad with 4 extra tubes. Running 4 fuel jets would be Alot faster but reactionary time would be Alot slower without vectoring
Involving fuel pumps.
Jet & ducted fan are different.
