Hover testing base

This is what we made to test the hovering controls, it is just for testing so we designed it to be simple and a good hovering platform. By positioning the ducted fans in the corners of the equilateral triangle we hope to maximize stability but expect to lose some maneuverability, if you have a good idea on how to optimize the design just post, we appreciate feedback. Hope to have more pictures soon, just waiting on parts.

Astronomic Toys is currently developing a new brand of toy hoverplane that utilizes remote controlled robotics. If you are ready to look beyond the cheap imitation dogs lining the shelves of Walmart, Astronomic Toys may have a solution. This blog will document the construction and testing of this revolutionary toy.
