The buzzer reborn
Submitted By GTR34 on 10/10/20
Mars Explorer, GTR34, Feature Requests, New Vehicles 

GTR is back, with another new model.
 
Only this time, it's way more high-tech.
 
*Update: Fly the MicroDrone!*
 
Controls: WASD, Q and E for thrust variation, and R and F for yaw. To fly it, click "Command Drone". Since I have not found a useful command for the spacebar yet, "Space" cuts the throttle and allows you to drop through floors if you gain enough momentum.
 
Hold down "Option" to use the internal front facing camera.
 
This is the second version to my scout vehicle collection. This is the MicroDrone UAV vehicle that would be included with each buggy. The MicroDrone has two cameras: One in the front and one on the belly. 5 different sensors in the nose detect atmospheric temperature, light, thermal (thermal camera), laser distance sensor, and altimiter. This micro vehicle uses two brushless powered rotors with full four channel control, including yaw, pitch, etc. It uses four micro servos to control the rotor heads and direct the blades. It is flybarless, meaning there is no flybar to stabilize the blades. Instead, it uses the drone's incredible onboard conputer to microcorrect any stability errors in order to keep in in flight. It lasts for a very, very long time in the air. It is commanded by your buggy, primarily for CTF surveillance or quarry hunting. The drone itself if visible to the eye, but no data can be read from it (like name, and quarry points in the green tag.) It is virtually invisible if under a layer of fog. This can record the position of the quarry with a tiny microlaser and send this data back to your buggy, telling you in which direction the quarry is. This is great for spying or scouting. The drone is parked inside your buggy cockpit, and has limited performance figures, similar to the performance figures of the buzzer that I modeled a while ago:
 
 "I thought of an idea, which I believe someone mentioned. This could be a scout vehicle for any other vehicle. It would be VERRY small, like the size of a baseball or softball. It would not be capable of taking the quarry or shooting anything. It could have a tiny laser that it could shoot, but doesn't do anything. Or maybe when the fog is on full and the minimap is off and there are camo badges, you could sneak up on your enemy and fire a tiny laser that records their position. It would show up on that green cone thing in the corner of your screen. Then you would fly back to your vehicle, and park the buzzer/scout vehicle in the tiny scout garage concealed inside each vehicle. I think it sounds like a pretty cool idea. Top speed is maybe 34 mph. What do you think, guys?"
 
 
Technical Specs:
 
Top speed: 90 mph
Level of control: Four Channel
Pitch status: Fixed pitch rotorhead
Camera type: Infrared, Thermal, Normal
Radio frequency: 2.4ghz
Battery life: 24 hours of nonstop flight
Sensors: Heat, light, distance, altitude, atmospheric pressure
Payload: small objects under 18 ounces
 
 
This drone takes the color of your buggy. It is very unique and I plan for it to use jet physics (Minus the forward flight mode, just hover mode) to navigate. Its sensors help keep the blades from walls and other objects by redirecting it away.
 
Here are some pictures:
 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
As always, questions and comments wanted.

Another idea is instead of the lazer, the drone could latch on to the quarry's vehicle and act as a homing beacon.

Wow! Awesome model!! You've done it again! Maybe the stuff under the rotors could be concealed in a gearbox or something like that, as it is a slight distraction when everything else is so organic and smooth. Also, maybe it would be better with just a cockpit, instead of the cameras.

That, and also the full array of cameras that syn3h and mars have. In the drone view, though, it will show all types of stats, and even possibly thermal mode and infrared mode. Do you think it would be okay to just have those two cameras in the drone, or more than two?

More than two would be too complicated. I love the thermal and infared camera idea! Maybe a heat camera too! Maybe two keyboard buttons would switch between the two cameras. Also, what about angling the bottom camera forward a bit, so your not looking straight down. And what about landing gear, the I liked the way the previous buzzer could stick to things.

You know what would make it even awesomer! So under that main front light, see that buldge that's kind of like a dent but outwards. If those were air scoops that somehow stabilized the aircraft and gave it more power, this will be the awesomest vehicle ever. You are the greatest vehicle maker I have ever known.

Looks awesome! How about this; when the drone gets to within a short distance from the quarry it exerts a pull, like an air anchor, that slows the quarry and makes handling more sluggish. The quarry needs to use skill to out- manoeuvre the drone, execute flips, turns and dives etc,  to shoot it and disable it.

no minimap showing other people further than 30meters away in syn3h
 
the drone should use a laser to snap to to other vehilcles and stick to them then you could see the drone (which is on the other person) on the minimap.
 
unlike the buggy, the drone also has a heat camera (everything is blue except the vehicles get red) so you could search other players easily

Very nice model as usual GTR34.  I twas starting to worry you had given up modeling some.  (you should make some more worlds.  :P)  It's a neat veichle and idea, but you need to hammer out the use of a drone, like for example, could it stick to other buggys?  Would it slow the buggy down?  ect.

Looks pretty awesome! One thing though, you said it would use jet hover mode for flight. That would mean tilting when moving around, right? 'Cause I think that you should be perfectly steady, but only able to look straight out of the two cameras. I don't know if you were thinking that you would be able to move your view around in either camera, but if the vehicle was steady in flight it would be a good limitation to have only the two views (Picture in picture too maybe?).

Yes. Well, I do have a blade MSR micro heli, and that is most of the technology inspiration for this Drone. The mSR has four channel control with a swashplate and setup very similar to that of the drone. The mSR stays very stable in hover and does not tilt much, so this should not have this much tilt either. And I was thinking a fisheye view could also be available on the front camera, so you could have a better view around you.

I think the cockpit of the buggy should open slowly, the buzzer comes out on an extendable arm as its propellers unfold, then it detaches, and the buggy puts on its brakes.
What would be REALLY cool is if there was something that allowed you to pick up your buggy or someone else's, and very slowly, move it around.

You'll have to edit the jet settings a bit for it though, because in hover mode on the jet you tend to drift downwards as you move around. Do you think a vehicle settings list will be implemented in Syn3h to edit the speed and range of the drone?
 
P.S. Also, a little color wouldn't hurt.

Great work as always, GTR. May we see some wireframe pics and maybe the ship in the un-smoothed mode? I'm also a bit curious as to the poly count.
 
Another question: What are those 5 metal bolt/pegs in the front of the ship?

¡Hola!
¿Qué es...?
Oops. Gimme a minute; I got to pick up my jaw and debug my eyeballs.
.....
'K then. Here's my opinion.
 
  1. You've really outdone yourself, GTR. Again. There's a massive amount of detail in these photos. Too bad my (cr/l)aptop can't manage any graphics setting higher than "Fast".   :P
  2. I just have to point out that it looks like a cross between a camcorder and a pair of 'Hueys.   XD
  3. I'm confused about the propellers. I see that the existing pair (based on the angles of the blades) would rotate in opposite directions, but doesn't it still need a rear propeller for stability?
  4. Also concerning movement: I don't see any place for the propellers to pivot, nor do I see thrusters or jets. If I'm not wrong, how does it go anywhere but up?
Not trying to be a critic, just curious.  :)

In his previous version there were joints for the blades to pivot on the x and z axis - the current version has a covering over all of that.

*whistles* that's a pretty sweet model. By the way gub a heat camera and a thermal camera are the same thing, thermal means heat. I think a thermal camera would be really cool for a foggy world in which the vehicle engines gave of heat signatures.
As I said above, Awesome work.

1. No, a tail rotor is only to counteract the rotational torque of a single rotor. Two rotors rotating in opposite directions cancel each other's rotational torque, therefore a tail rotor is not needed.
2. It is fixed pitch, meaning that the motor determines the ascent and descent of the aircraft. (It speeds up or slows down.) It uses a swashplate that is connected to the blades. The swashplate is controlled by two servos and changes the pitch of the blades in order to make it move forward or backward. It does this by pitching the blades more on one part of the rotation, and as the blades move around the rotorhead, it pitches them nearly flat. This created a high frequency flapping motion on one part of the entire blade assembly, forcing more air out of one area of the spinning blades, and causes the aircraft to move forward. It's very hard to  explain, but to put it simply, the whole assembly doesn't move. The blades themselves are manipulated to move the aircraft, like a real helicopter.

Oh, sorry, that doesn't help much, does it?
 
The modelling is great, and I always enjoy seeing your work. But I don't think the colours or style really match Syn3h. I see this vehicle as being in a FPS game as you're flying in it shooting down on New York. I always thought of Syn3h's colours being blue, silver and white. But I guess that this would look pretty smackin' good in the game.
 
Overall, I would rate it a 8/10. Pretty good!

I think that it might be a good idea to have a small camera mounted in the back, maybe under the horzontal tailplanes, just so that you can see if someone is following you, or attempting to snipe you.

Actually I was also hoping for a different tail setup as the one you have is a bit awkward in my opinion. 
 
Also, does it have any landing gear? Or does it just land in the buggy, which might not work when trying to scout.

What are you thinking about for landing gear for this. Will it have any?
Also, maybe a slightly rounder top and bottom would make it better. And maybe rounder in the front. It looks a little too pointy.

Blue it is, teriva :) and Yes, In the future it will have landing gear. I am thinking of using the cut throttle feature for stable landing. (Meaning it won't drift around like the jet does when you land it)

Cool, did you script it yourself? Some suggestions:
 
You might want to consider normal mapping the seams instead of using polies to do so (I'm pretty sure you aren't normal mapping any of it). You can also normal map the 5 pegs, as well as the cameras and still get the same effect.

While it's a fairly good model, (I have some objections which are listed below) there does seem to be one problem.  What can it do?  What's it used for?  How fast is it able to fly?  What are the controls for it?  Ect.  Can it shoot lasers?  You need to hammer out the capabilitys.
 
Objections.  As Fai put it so nicely "I am not hypnotized"
  1. I don't believe you need the 5 "studs" since today if your going to have sensors and a camera the sensors are built into the camera, IE they would be little extrusions on the side of the camera.
  2. Also what is with the little small metal tubes sticking up in the middle?  Is it supposed to be an attena?  Because I could see the tail having a built in antenna like a fair amount of remote controlled helicopters do.
  3. Also, what type of landing gear are you going to have?  Because it seems like the bottom of the tail would hit the ground in landed form?  Are you going to raise that?  Have a miny peg or wheel in the back?
  4. Another one, in pic number three what is the small rectangular pleatue like things on the sides?  Is that supposed to be some sort of air intake?  Helicopters don't have air intakes.
  5. Is the tail removeable?  In picture number five it looks like there is a tiny access panel right there or something.  Because if there isn't I would want that smoved to be a single piece of metal.
  6. Is it going to be similar to the osprey in that it can turn into basically a propellar airplane?
Okay that's all I got for now...

1. Why does there have to be studs there? Because I want them to be. Makes the styling interesting.
2. This is more like a satellite antenna, wifi antenna and 2.4ghz antenna. 2.4ghz For close range operation, wifi for populated city areas with internet (or buildings) if all other communication fails, and satellite for extreme long distance operation. I'd figure there'd be an incredibly small amount of room for the antennas inside the aircraft, since it contains high-tech batteries, a hard drive, all the camera recording eqipment, escs, receivers, a small on-board computer for calculating the corrections for the flybarless propellers, gyro sensors, and all the equipment for the various sensors. You see what I'm getting at? Plus the antennas are protected by the spinning props.
3. I will have tripod landing gear that suctions on to surfaces with electromagnets for metallic surfaces. Trust me, the tail won't hit the ground, I'll make sure of that.
4. Helicopters indeed DO have air intakes. These are actually styling lines only, there's no hole for the air to pass through. So once again, let me make it stylish.
5. It's the mold lines. Don't like it, too bad. It's made to look a little more realistic than smooth. So just a few real world touches to it.
6.No, it is fixed pitch. I believe I explained it all in the description. The blades are manipulated in order to move the copter, not the entire engine assembly. It uses control links, swashplates, etc. in order to make it manueverable. Understand that?
 
7. how fast will it fly? what is it used for? can it shoot lasers? Well, the laser thing is a bit unclear for some people, so let me clear it up. It shoots a locating laser in order to tag targets and make them visible in CTF tournaments. It has no fully equipped quarry stealing vehicle launching lasers. But for all else:
the specs are in the description.
Under the "specs" section?
HELLO? get your head out of your butt and read the discription fully before criticism begins?
It's because of you boneheads that I have to into extreme detail in the comments section when really it's all there at the top.

Hey GTR I like the MicroDrone, but I would really like it if it could go 200 or 250 mph or a little less. Another thing I would do is make the light on the front work. I love how the space bar stops it, Ilove the look, and I love the controls. All in all It's in second place for my favorite vehicle. (buggy and racing buggy tie as my favorite vehicles.)

Idle as in no movement = 0 volts

Cool vehicle, but it will be too powerful for mars.  Already, noobs have used jets for evil, and this could be used the same.  Any vehicle that takes no effort to gain altitude, or time to gain speed is too good a tool for noobs.  It is better than the jets but can still be used as a noob vehicle.

laser capabilities are controllable.  As long as it takes no effort to go up, it can be used for noobing.  It is less noobish then the jet, however, and the model is awesome.  I think its about time mars has a boat, and that tank and hovercraft get a perk that makes them better, like a spacebaer command, like buggy wings or jet flight.

Just not too many assistances so that it does not become a noobing device in a sense. Great idea japes but I think that a grappling hook alone would be enough. I love the design of the vehicle though

Good question. A button will be provided to launch the drone. It flies out of the canopy of your vehicle, and then you take the drone's place. Meanwhile, the buggy puts its breaks on and waits until you return.

Hello, just wanted to toss a few of my opinions into the mix, now that I've tried and gotten a feel for the drone.
  1. I required both hands on the keyboard to fly it effectively. Might be just my own incompetence, but that might make shooting from 1st person rather difficult.
  2. I'm not well versed in this area, so I don't know what "yaw" even means, or what it's used for, etc. Nonetheless, I discovered that holding 'yaw' (r/f) in one direction and holding the opposite directional key (a/d; right/left) resulted in a remarkable horizontal strafing motion.  :D
  3. Tested out the spacebar function; might be better termed as "kill power" as opposed to "cut thrust", because it disabled my ability to turn the craft as well. Just for the sake of clarity, haha. :p
  4. English OCD aside, I think the current spacebar function has potential for an awesome evasive maneuver, simply because of the rate of descent. 
  5. Speaking of rates, I thought the speed was perfect.
In summary, it turned out great for me. The learning curve was easier than expected, motion and maneuvering were smooth, and the rendering was good as well, in spite of my crappy framerate.  xp
Bravo, GTR!

you have to use both hands?
 
wierd. but that comes from experience with helicopters. some pretty CRAZY experiences...
 
yaw is turning for aircraft...
 
and the reason you cant turn when you decrease the thrust is because the heli turns USEING its engines. not the tail. so if there is no down thrust, it cant turn.

Good job GTR! Awesome to use, and really fun!  Although, what you were saying about torque and physic-y stuff, I have absolutely no clue what you were saying... Could you explain it easier to someone who doesn't know about anything about physics?  Thanks, :)
-Cal
P.S.:  AWESOME MICRODRONE! Super fun!

Why would you need that? Unless camouflage badges are in use, the Quarry's name is already in green, distinguishing it from the rest. THAT is your homing beacon.

I don't know how to say this but it's "to fat"
I suggest making it less "fat" in length.

He might not put it in Syn3h. He's basically already planned out which vehicles to use...
I recommend looking at his Evernote.

Funny isn't it, how every time anyone looks at you you accuse them of trolling...

And what exactly is that number you wrote there?..

And lastly, if you're going to start a flame war with me, as you always seem to do, please take it to the general discussion thread. I have no wishes of ruining this very nice post.
