I'm a freshman at Portland State University working on a project with a team to create a quad copter with (for the purposes of intellectual property protection) "unique capabilities," that require a high payload in a relatively small aircraft.
- Has anyone converted this model of quad to an X8 before?
- What is the recommended power distribution board?
(We bought an octocopter power distribution board from hobby king but it seems to lack the digital connection that the 3DR quad board came with. The pins that feed to the backside grid of the pixhawk) Which leads me to my next question:
- Does a 3DR APM pixhawk require a 3DR power distribution board?
- Any tips for fastening the bottom motors to the arms?
Any and all comments are appreciated. We are on a tight timeline so let us know what you have to say!
