This is my first blog here and hopefully not my last. The picture is obviously the frame of my DIY Quadrocopter. I'm waiting on a delivery of the electronics to complete it. I got anxious and couldn't wait to share my project with you all so this will be part one of more to come, so long as the final assembly, tuning and maiden voyage are all successful. I've been reading a lot and learning a lot from all of you here. So I wanted to share my project and get your input.
The frame is 3/4" Oak. Each boom measures about 12" from the center. It will be powered by NTM Prop Drive Series 35-30 1100kV (380W) motors, 30 Amp Turnigy Plush ESCs, 11.1v Lipo (of various assorted mAH), KK2 Control Board, I've ordered an assortment of propellers from 8X4.5 to 10X4.7. I think the 10X4.7 will work best given the results from http://www.ecalc.ch/. I could probably push it up to a 14.8v, but I wanted my first quad to be manageable horsepower (Watts). So far I'm really enjoying my new therapy - I mean hobby. I'll have more to share as I progress.
