quadcopter overview from Brothers Olson on Vimeo.

Oh no I'm making this quad world, funny how quad posts all arrive together just like buses, I thought this chap had done well and this was worth sharing.

Looking further they seem to know what they are doing...

Glad you shared it. I'm also trying to lift a Canon 5dII, so this is interesting to me. Currently, I'm using the aeroquad (soon also arducopter) platform and 4 turnigy 2217 motors. Not enough to lift a 5dII, but can lift smaller dslr (barely). Think I'll build a new frame and run 8 motors. Seems like you should be able to get
away with fewer batteries...

This is a result that came out of this epic (as in "a number of interesting story and character developmen...... and now they're making videos that look like these:

Just FYI, this quad is based on the Quadpowered board using the stock software. http://www.quadpowered.com

A Basic Stamp controller ? WOW !

So how much did this one cost?

Comment by John Arne Birkeland on July 29, 2010 at 6:14pm
The quadpowered site says 4x Propeller chips meaning 32x32bit 80mhz cores, so not a Basic Stamp.

Hi all,

You need to get on RC Groups and do a search for George Sapp who is the creator of "quadpowered.com". Sapp's software and hardware is PROPRITARY and there has been some heated debate on RC Groups concerning Sapp's products and attitude: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1060552&highlig...

I am presently working on a square quadrarotor frame that is 20" X 20" with a diagonal distance between the motors of 28" when flown in an "X" configuration. I am using these motors: http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id=V450327&pid=D1748437

The BP Hobbies motors are good for around 250watts each WOT and they are controlled by CC Thunderbird 36 ESCs. I plan to use a minimum of two 5000mahr LiPos to power the beast. I will probably use the APM/IMU Mega for stabilization when the quadrarotor software matures.

Props are all on backwards. Bet he'd get a ton more flight time if they were correct.

Maybe it was just an optical illusion? Second guessing my claim haha
