quadcopter?

Post by earthwormjim » Wed Jan 25, 2012 9:15 am

Anyone had a look at the "Quadcopters & Parts" section of hobbyking?
I am sorely tempted,I reckon it would be a bit like building an antweight!
Assemble the frame,put in the controller board,wire up the motors,and Bobs you uncle!
Also,the board can be hacked and reloaded with tricopter s/w etc.
It all looks very cheap too,for what you are getting.
Also,as part ofone of the kits,they have tiny nylon brushless motors!!!!
I cant find them for sale on the rest of the site,but they sound interesting!!

They look pretty good.With a $10 camera mounted onto it,they can take some amazing footage!
