Here is my log on my attempts on building my own drone.
I am going to post just about everything i do and perhaps other can learn from my mistakes :o)
Feel free to comment my work.
I am planning to use 2 Easystars. one for RC training and one for the real thing.
Stuff i am going to use:
Motor: Turnigy 2835 2200kv
BEC: HobbyWing Pentium 25 A
Battery:LiPo 1800 3S 25C
Prop: APC-E 6x5.5
Radio: Currently a salvaged 4 channel 2.4 GHz from an ArtTech Parkflyer. Will upgrade later.
Assembling the Easystar
The manual was easy to follow, but instead of glue for assembling the fuselage, i used double sided tape. (used for carpets)
I placed the controller inside the fuselage.I am not planning to at full speed so heat will not be an issue (i hope).
Double sided tape in place.
Even more tape...I will not use quite as much on the next Easystar
Closeup of the motor mount. Airflow is needed around the motor so only tape on top and bottom
Fastening the servos
A little tight...easy to fix with some sandpaper
