    No problem, I think a single roll of 300 waterproof LEDs was $10 on eBay. Easy to work with too.

    I'm not 100% sure on these calculations, but the Full 5 meter long 300 LED strips draw 24W from 12V. Each strip I am using 18 LEDs, so a total of 72 LEDs.

    I wonder how much flight time would these lights take off the battery...

    Yeah, I understand that. I still want to try, and, if it does not work, I could say "I tried" at least
    What about motors? Any personal

    You can have a lot of torsion in the 3 main arm with this design. In standard frame you never have this. Just don't forget this because it can create

    Well, honestly, 50cm was a bit of a stretch. I was thinking about using 10-12'' props, so 12'' plus 1'' of a gap would make 33cm...

    I'm thinking about a hexacopter with a homemade frame, and my idea is building it like a symmetrical tri-copter with "T" beams instead of "l".

    Download the AeroQuad Software

    AeroQuad hardware typically consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS.

    Below you'll find an overview of the features AeroQuad offers you:

    Multiple flight configurations are supported:
    • Tri
    • Quad X, Quad +, Quad Y4
    • Hex X, Hex +, Hex Y6
    • Octo X, Octo +, Octo X8

    Flight options supported:
    • Heading hold with magnetometer or gyro
    • Altitude hold with barometer
    • Altitude hold with ultrasonic sensor (best for low altitude hold and terrain following)

    Enhanced battery monitoring options:
    • Measurement of battery voltage, used capacity and current
    • Enable auto descent on critical battery voltage
    • Auto-detect battery cell count
    • Integration with On Screen Display (OSD)

    Multiple receiver options:
    • Up to 10 channel receivers supported
    • PWM receivers
    • PPM receivers
    • PPM using hardware timer
    • Futaba sBus receivers

    Telemetry options:

    Camera stabilization support:
    • Dedicated servo channels for roll, pitch, yaw
    • Either automatic stabilization or manual adjustment via transmitter channel

    Custom OSD support for MAX7456:
    • Specify video standard to use
    • Specify callsign to display
    • Built in attitude indicator
    • Display altitude in feet/meters
    • Display GPS information and home direction/distance
    • Display battery information (voltage, used capacity, current) and flight time
    • OSD system which allows remote PID tuning!
