Quad Copter Frame

"The propellers are 11". each beam is about 1.5' so the overall copter makes about 3'x3' square. Weight I believe when I weighed it was right around 2 lbs"

Quad Copter Base

"Battery on the bottom, will help the weight balanced, and keep your centre of gravity low, which translates to stable flight."

Joel commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New product in the DIY Drones store: APM telemetry kit!
"This is exactly what I had in mind for a communications system....those Xbee USB boards are awesome for a UAV set up where the AP has to talk to the computer!  "

Profile Information

About Me:
I enjoy electronics as a hobby and building things. UAVs have always sparked interest in me. I currently have an airframe built from scratch for a Quad Copter and am about to start connecting up electronics etc.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Mainly interested in Quad Copter platform since I can build most of the airframe myself. Also interested in possible photography from Quad Copter platform.
Caledonia, MI
