Anti-vibration to the rescue

Saturday I took some time to modify the top plate for the 3D printed BackyardRC Quadcopter. In the original design the ardupilot was mounted solidly. With this setup the motor vibrations almost made the ardupilot useless.

So it was time to modify the build with anti-vibration in mind. So I looked for the most high tech solution I could think of. Ear plugs.

I had to drill out the stock holes to fit the compressed plugs. The finial product looks pretty good but will need some testing. More to come on that soon.
