After the crash of my stock arducopter due to a dying battery on my controller I had to rebuild.
The result of my rebuild pleases me a lot, for one I decreased the weight by almost 500 gr. The total weight with a camera and battery (not shown) is ~1400 gr. Adding telemetry will increase the weight only marginally and there is still plenty of space in the canopy for FPV gear.
standard jDrones arducopter electronics but with the new APM 2.0 (it arrived :) ).
and power distribution board.
4S 3000mA 25C battery pack
sexycopter black crow 4 fibreglass frame
50mm sexycopter landing legs, the landing legs are not compatible with the black crow frame but this was easily solved with an additional aluminium frame (with minimal extra weight).
Finally, a very strong DVD spindel.
All adding up to ~1400gr !!! if my final spinner and propeller / telemetry arrives next week I will start test flights.
