    Darth Maul dark eye probe droid

    My progress had stalled a bit while I hunted for the lightest true-x 215mm frame I can get my hands on. And of course, I'm running into the Chinese New Year at the same time. It *was* looking like 60-70g was going to be as light as I could get without figuring out how to have one...

    Darth Maul dark eye probe droid

    Just saw the pictures of SavageCreature's model on the RebelDroids.net thread. It looks to be *much* higher resolution than the one I'm working with. (But otherwise, they seem to match pretty dang well.) I've signed up on the droid forum, but I can't post yet, because my application hasn't...

    Well, I'll be starting to accumulate project pictures shortly. (I'm going to try carving the filler/platform piece into the solid hemisphere I need tomorrow.) Unfortunately, with as loud as drones are, I won't be mounting a sound system for audio effects. Nobody would hear them anyway.

    From what I've seen, including a 3D-printed RC plane, 3D printed would need to be at least 1.5-2mm to hold up well enough, and that's going to run in the neighborhood of 4.5-6 lbs. Way too much. The alternative is a *lot* of internal structure for bracing, but that'll add as much weight or...

    Yeah, the ducts will be a bit of an issue, especially since it needs to be pretty much unobstructed at the exit. If I've done my math right, though, they should be *mostly* hidden by the left & right side plates, so long as the props are kept small enough (currently figuring about 1.75"...

    Ah. Yep, that's what I get for doing the math in my head. I worked from 1/3m, and came up with a hair over 13". But, that'd be the difference between .3m and 1/3m. 11.811". An even foot in diameter would be 0.3048 meters. Either way, I don't think anyone's going to be complaining if you're...

    Sith Probe Droid - Custom Modification

    Roughly how much would you say the empty shell weighed? I'm starting a project to try to build one of these around a quadcopter, but everything I've explored besides carved foam will add way too much weight to be practical.

    As you said, the only official measurement is 0.3m (about 13"), which is consistent what we see in the movie. As for what part that measurement represents? I think it's probably the widest part of the main body. (The diagonal line across the center from the 'electronics bulge' to the...

    Starting on my first serious prop project, and hoping to find useful tips, and gain from the experience of more developed crafters.
