FFT GYRO

First Flight Tester Gyroscope

Platform for research and development with Drones

First Flight Tester Gyroscope

The FFT GYRO is a test-bed system that would allow you to implement your development easier, faster, and without the risk of a collision. Save time and money, and focus on changing the game with your innovation. The system helps to understand, develop, and implement new mechanics, electronics and software for vertical take-off and landing vehicles without putting at risk the equipment. It can be connected to a PC (MATLAB/Simulink) to accelerate the test, implementation, and validation of the development. Focus on your work, do not waste time with technicalities, lead in drone innovation. Ask for the Series 290, 450, 600 or a custom build.

Overview

The system is a platform with 3 DOF. A multi-rotor can be attached to a base, which can hold different types and sizes of UAVs and align the geometric center to the center of rotation of the FFT GYRO, letting the vehicle move about it’s real geometric center, and not eccentrically. The structure is designed to allow free rotation about the main axes. The gimbals are equipped with slip rings, so there is no limitation in the rotation of the parts and the electrical connections. The system has three encoders and DC motors (optional). To measure the true roll, pitch and yaw angles of the drone, high-resolution magnetic absolute multi-turn encoders are used. And the DC motors can simulate external forces as disturbances, to perform validations of the robustness for the control laws, or to automate the calibration or validation phase. The gimbals are made of high-quality light and strong material, to reduce the inertia that might be added to the system and maintain the properties of a rigid structure.

Made For Developers & Researchers

Working on a new drone design, a more efficient aerodynamic form, new electronics, or a novel flight controller algorithm? The FFT GYRO is designed to implement, test, and validate them efficiently and securely.

Safe collision-free environment

Different types of drones can be attached to perform flight test safely. Tune your orientation controller before an accident occurs. You can install this in a lab, a workshop, or a classroom to teach students the use and control of UAVs.

Angular position measurement

High-resolution magnetic encoders to measure roll, pitch and yaw angles with high precision and no drift at all. Slip-rings allows absolute free rotation in the 3 DOF. Also, the encoders can be replaced with motors to simulate external forces.

High quality materials and electronics

Light and strong materials like aluminum alloys and carbon fiber, reducing extra weight to the vehicle. The system can be connected to MATLAB/ Simulink or any other platform, we provide you tools and support.
