Topic: Extremely Unstable flight after upgrading to bearings (drone 2.0)
I bought 2 sets of BocaBearings 2x5x2.3 and upgraded the stock brass bushings.
However, now my drone won't even take off, it just immediately flies around and crashes while not even leaving the ground...
At best I can get it to get up in the air and it will erratically sway back and forth like a U about 1 foot off the ground until it crashes
I have tried various combinations of bearing / bushings, including putting just bearings on the tops, and then putting just bearings on the bottom. It seems to me there is a give in the "sway" of the shaft when i use the bearings.
When i hold the drone and look at the props spinning I can notice violent shaking and it creates the deformation look at the centers of the props (which is what i'm assuming causes the really bad flight).
Does anyone else have this issue? and if so how did you fix it?
Mine flies perfectly with the stock bushings however i really don't like the noise - i loved the noise of the bearings minus the not being able to fly part.
These are the bearings: http://www.bocabearings.com/bearing-inv … -3-MR682ZZ
PS. on a side note, does anyone know of any higher quality, stronger shafts that will fit the ar drone 2.0? I hate bending my shafts, and i probably went through 6 or 7 of them just trying to get my bearings to work (thank god for the indoor hull otherwise i would have probably broke just as many props)
