Well, I don't know if this was already posted but I've came across with it just now. It's a 2011 video, so probablly you have seen it allready, however it's really cool :D
Hi, I just watched this video, and it seems to me a good ground base for those who want to start with multicopters and don't know what's the best platform.
Here is the first flight of my first hexa :D used software AC2.5.4 wich gave an excellent flight (I had 2 yaw twiches) Loiter still needing some work in software or PID. I think throttle rate is a bit higher causing those ups and downs. Alt hold seemed to work better with version 2.2.

What do you make of this ? :D I came across with it today, don't know if it flyies or not, not much info on it.

Finally I've managed to have some time and do a little flight to test the Arducopter v2.1 firmware.
Here is my quad and some specs I hope you find them usefull somehow :
Weight (with camera on board) : 1700gr
Weight (without camera) : 1500gr
Battery : Turnigy 5000mAh 3S / 30-40C
Motors : 4 x EMAX GT 2812-11 930KV (about $15 each from plus2city - behaving very well so far)
ESCs : 4 x AE 30Amp (about $12 from hobbywing, behaving surprisinglly well so…Continue
This are the pictures from my first auto fly mode wich took place today. I was happy with the results even if alt must be tuned, but I had no crash, and any flight without a crash, for me is a good flight :DContinue
