The Icarus first person drone racing kit is my final major project I am working on for university. It is a ready-to-race kit that enables users to experience first person view drone racing in a safe and affordable way.
The above image has all of the internal components for the Icaras first person view drone racing headset laid out prior to assembly. I designed all of the parts in SolidWorks and 3D printed them out using an Ultimaker 2 in black PLA.
The above image shows the internal structure in its assembled form. The blue wheel rotates to tighten the internal smartphone locking mechanism. To release the lock, simply press down on the top button and rotate in the opposite direction.
This is a shot of my HTC phone in position streaming a stereoscopic video of a FPV drone race. The phone is comfortably locked into position and the focal distance is correct. Time for some fast paced, FPV drone racing action!
