Having had my curiosity peaked by a recent DIY Drones post, I decided I would go ahead and purchase the Turnigy Integrated PCB Micro-Quad from HobbyKing, along with all the accessories necessary to complete the unit. As seems to be quite often the case with HK, when I finally put in the order, the Turnigy motors were backordered, as were the motor mounting bolts and nuts. I decided to order what parts were available, and seek to source the deficiencies elsewhere. Shipping for two kits (my nephew and I are each going to build one) was $29 CAD, which seems a little steep, in my opinion.
I found a supplier for what appears to be a compatible motor (Suppo A1504) and I exchanged emails with Garret at Altitude Hobbies. I have put my name on the four he had in stock, and asked him to hold another four when it gets them in. If others are considering building the Micro-Quad, you might consider getting in touch with Garret regarding the Suppos if you don't want to wait for HK to get their Turnigy units in.
The objective of this build is to get a little practical experience with a multi-rotor with a modest investment. Undoubtedly, the initial payload will include the HK HD Wing Camera, which is the same one used in the Yachats video posted a while back. For the price and weight, you just can't beat the quality of video it produces.
