It's been awhile since I have posted anything on this. But I have been working! (some might disagree..) So this quadcopter thing...

The classic Quadcopter.
This is something I have been wanting to do for awhile and now has finally materialized. The basics goals of this was:
1. Cheap but not cheap2. Custom frame aka not a kit build.
3. Can carry a small HD camera [goPro]

The frame is laser cut from a 1/8 delrin sheet that makes up the body and the motor mounts. The Struts are 10mm carbon fiber box from Hobbyking while the landing gear is laser cut wood; with the intent to be swapped for bigger ones when a camera is attached. The main bulk the electronics is sourced from Hobby King, and the main control board is the new KK2. And because everyone loves photos:

I also picked up an Spektrum 6 Channel Radio and receiver for control and also future projects. One more order from McMaster should provide the raw materials and fastening hardware.
