After my quad flew itself into the side of my workshop and destroying itself, I decided to go with a hex after having bearing…Continue
I had a blast helping my friend build his hexacopter last weekend. This video includes some tips and tricks. We also had to do some interesting trouble shooting for problem that showed up during ESC calibration that turned out to be a bad soldering job (yep it was my fault!).
Anyway please enjoy a 5 minute condensed version of a fun day building the most…Continue
We've got some new cool discounts on Multicopters, starting today through the end of the year!
Just received my udrones.com hexacopter. I had been looking for reviews and information on the product before i purchased but just couldn't fine anything out there. I bit the bullet and purchased this craft from them and was happy with their service and the quality of the product when it arrived.
I went all out and bought the RTF version with all the…Continue
I just wanted to share with you my new video:
It was filmed with my multiwii hexacopter equipped with a GoPro Hero2.
The frame was designed by me.
What do you think?
Take a look at my heavy lift hexacopter.
It flies very stable with the standard PIDS.
Couldn't get loiter to work though.

I just want to share with the DIYdrones community my project GuerrillaDrone. It's a Y6 copter with a onboard beamer for video projections in the public space.
As you know in Spain we have a strong crisis with a massive injection of money to the banks meanwhile thousands of people are evicted frome their houses, so the…
Water jetting Hexacopter frames:
A few friends and I built a batch of Hexacopter frames. The design is based upon the Arducopter frame, but I ended up creating all of the parts from scratch in…Continue
I have been following DIYDrones for years now, and have gleaned lots from other people's efforts along the way. I recently decided (after finding some cost effective frames on ebay) to get started for myself.
I started the heli hobby 2 years ago with a trex-450 in which i learnt pretty quickly, start small... much smaller than a 450 class heli! Constantly breaking various parts of the 450…Continue
I've been working on a hexacopter project for the last few months and finally got it completed and flying. Specs for my hexa are listed below. It has been a fun project and I am impressed with the Ardupilot 2.0 Board & Arducopter Software thus far. Special thanks to all the people that have contributed to the arducopter wiki as the information and comments…Continue

I should thank the 3dr folks again for the awesome work they have done. The build was straight forward, the…Continue
I have been working on a hexacopter for aerial videography and photography. The hexacopter is equipped with a ArduPilot Mega with sonar, gps, magnetometer and a camera gimbal. After hours of tuning, I got the Scout Hexa really dialed in.
I really happy with the stability of the Arducopter code. Here is a video demonstrating some of the ArduPilot…Continue
After creating the Arduspyder. We decided to create a real hexa. These are pictures of the making, maiden will be this weekend. Because of the purpose this frame is build for we sadly did not opt for an Arducopter but the frame will take an Ardu, Openpilot CC, Microkopter or any other hexa capable electronics.
The baseplate design in Rhinoceros…Continue
I found this video over the weekend. Not sure if its been posted on here before but its worth the watch. Some pretty tight flying through jungles and bridges.
I've been throwing around a few ideas for a hexacopter frame and have settled on a aluminum arm and fiberglass plate sandwich type frame (is there a more technical term for it?). The goal is to carry a digital SLR for aerial photography, though I'll work out the camera bits after I get past the basics of just getting it flying. From prop tip to prop tip it will be about 42 inches. The two plates in the middle are about 11.5 inches diameter and will be cut from 1/8th inch thick G10…Continue
