Build a drone video series
« on: June 18, 2017, 09:44:36 AM »
I just started making a new video series on building a quadcopter  :med: with a detachable payload section, with the first payload to be a stabilized camera platform for making aerial video. I'm using a simple and relatively inexpensive design in hopes of making it practical for others to build. Part 1 goes over all the components and some numerical modeling with ecalc to help optimize performance. To keep it from getting too dry I also included footage from some of my better crashes.  :palm:

I put the parts list and predicted performance data out on my website at http://BrainRight.com/Projects/Drone.

I just published the Part 2 video where I assemble and get it flying:

Next I'll build the payload section with a gimbal-stabilized camera platform and FPV transmitter.
