I'm putting together some specs for a semi-pro AP rig and wanted everyone's expert (or otherwise) opinion. I'll be strapping a GoPro, Canon 550D or semi-pro compact cameras to it. I'm aiming to keep it as close to $2k as possible (but realise I may go a little over.
This is based on sim-io's build located here. Thanks for that post too by the way sim_io.
DJI Naza flight controller
Mikrokopter Hexa XL frame kit
Avroto 2814-11S motors
Hobby King 30A ESC 3A UBEC (Flashed with SimonK)
Graupner E-Prop 11x5
Droidworx landing gear
Photohigher AV130 gimbal
4S Lipos (size for 10-15 mins flight???)
I already have a Spektrum DX8 Tx/Rx/Telemetry.
Also in addition to your opinion on the above setup, based on all your experience can you please suggest any other bits and pieces that I may have left off such as PDB or battery mounts. I'm not too sure about those things and what else I'll need to put it all together neatly.
I already have a Gaui 330X-S that I'm pretty confident in flying so this is a proper upgrade.
Thanks for your time.
Note: I'll be posting this elsewhere also to harvest as much info as possible.
I should also note that I do have an APM 2.5 on my Gaui 330X-S. I'm not comfortable with putting the APM on this rig, I'd rather have something very tried and tested.
