Well it has been quite long since last update...
the project was kinda delayed....
almost all of the hardware arived.
soon all parts will meet each other... to create the greatest of all..... the.. ____ (still looking for a name)
I've been drilling the arms to make the frame lighter...
it was about 470g, now it's ~420g.
i'll keep on drilling the arms from the horizontal side a bit
some stock of composite 12x45
apm, imu, sonar, gps, magnetometer, soon also telemetry
motors and ESC junkyard:
motors and ESC soldered and tested:
and now for the surprise...
a DroneCell with a SECOND GPS.
which are currently under development.
this standalone device will, once completed, send GPS coords over text messages to my cellphone.
this will help to find the copter if it gets lost.
Turnigy nano-tech 4S 6000mAh are on the way,
video TX\RX also on the way,
left to build is the DSLR camera mount... which is basically existing, just need to add the servos.
i'm waiting a 150g 33kg servo. will provide a smooth and powerful movement.
this is lots of stuff but not many work...
i soon will have more time for this, and i promise a kicking beast.
