Hi - here is a waterproof quad frame i built to film surfing and for surveying event sites constructed mostly from easily obtainable and cheap electrical hardware. I'm new to quads and rc but Ive found the whole experience of building this machine brilliant its been a lot of trial and error but I'm really pleased with the result.
This is version 2 after crashing the first into a cliff through pilot error! It flies very well....will post video soon.
Presently undergoing flight tests on water so far so good, im also planning on replacing the NAZA with Arducopter to undertake way-point mission planning.
