      • I’m definitely down for this, can you post a example of it though? Your description is good but I will get the idea better by looking at it.

    • Don’t use gyro and/or accel in chucks, it’s not a good idea.
      I already worked around this, and you definitely can’t use gyro/accel, because there is too much movement, to much information without any sense.

      By the way, I found something more interesting: vibration sensor https://www.adafruit.com/product/1766

      there is 3 variation, for easy,…Read More

    • Thanks, and yes, when I will reach the next step, I will show the result of course 😉
      Something like that are better shared than hide.
      If someone want more details on any part of this project, don’t hesitate, promised won’t bite 😉

      • Right on! I have wanted to get into some similiar things, thats great your sharing what youve learned. I have been contemplating looking into putting
        Accelerometer and gyro inside a set of chucks. I havent coded or worked much with arduino stuff but I did start dabbling with drones and flight control boards a little bit last year and was…Read More

            there is 3 variation, for easy, medium and hard trigger, and it will be much better. I can’t buy these right now, I have enough wire soldering to do, but clearly it’s my next move.

      • Othy this is awesome! Please keep up informed with your new prototypes!

    • Depends on which type of flight, imo, because it can vary if you’re travelling inside a country, or outside. For exemple, in some European Country, like France, even in a checked bag, nunchakus are forbidden, even knife, bottles bigger than 1.5 L, etc, and even if you’re coming from another country. In south America, like Peru or Agentina, it’s…Read More
