  • helloo...i just build my quadcopter on kk multicopter board v5.5. The construction part gone great, but when i started controlling it through RC, am not being able to provide equal rpm to all the rotors for throttle up and down.
    So would u please suggest me some way, how to control throttle up and down initially...
    A little help from u wud be appreciable...!!

Using a drone to help place an antenna at the 80' to 200' level of a sturdy Douglas Fir tree.

I invite and welcome your comments and suggestions regarding the application that is described in this discussion. I have been building and flying drones for about three years, and am early in the process  of adding collision-avoidance to my Phantom 2 Vision, and then to a 3D Robotics  X8+. Once I have collision-avoidance working on the Phantom, I would like to add a solenoid release mechanism behind the camera. The release mechanism would serve to securely carry fishing line to a suitable and…
