I've just built our arducopter named "Mugen" and so I can share a little timelapse video showing the building process...




Next step will be in fact to learn how to flight properly the arducopter and use the different modes...

Then, later, it'll get some FPV upgrade!

Hello Nicolas,


For me this has to be the best build log I have seen here on DIY Drones, the final landing did make me smile, been there....... :) Thank you for sharing! 


Oh, could you re-shoot with a very untidy desk to make us all feel a little better about our work stations!

Congrats, you beat me on time :)

I was thinking of doing the same, but delayed the beginning of the building process because of many other projects I've been working on and because I don't have a dedicated electronics desk.

But I'll post mine when I do it anyway :)


Just for curiosity, with which camera did you take the pics? The GoPro? And with which interval between shots?

Comment by nicolas B on November 27, 2011 at 4:21am

Yes, I used the GoPro with 5MP shots every 10 seconds. The video uses thoses frames @30fps, so it's a x300 timelapse!

I'll look forward to your post, it's always interesting to see how others are working! (^_^)

Awesome video. When I watched the video I also realized...how did he keep his desk to clean.


Comment by Kirill on November 27, 2011 at 1:01pm

Excellent! I was enjoying watching the video.

How much time did you spent on assembling?

I made the same video as you did (but shorter) when assembling my Arducopter. Here is it:

Nice that you spent 15-20 min playing with the cat also. :) My cat loves to supervise my work also. Props to you for the clean desk.
