So I recently switched to the 500W spindle… I haven’t really done enough cutting to say this definitively, but I think it’s a bit slower and a bit cleaner than the DW 660. It has a lot less vibration it seems. One downside though: the mounting distance is completely off. I’m probably going to need to re=drill the Z axis.
I’m jealous! Although I’ll be honest, full speed on my new spindle is a fraction of the loudness from cutting the wood… Those brushless ones usually come with a Hall sensor though… Now that would be cool to have!
I’m pretty excited. I have flown a bunch of quads and a few wings a long time ago. You can see the giant quads I had on thigiverse. The FPV thing looks like it takes away all the things I didnt like about flying. Like trying to figure out orientation at a distance.
I would probably go nuts if I didn’t have a pan/tilt - it’s my understanding that you don’t normally use those on quads. You’ll have a hell of a lot of fun though! If I were you I’d build a sit-down platform that’s rigged the same as a helicopter. That’s an intuitive control system with quads.
