Hello and welcome to our community! Is this your first visit?
New to quadcopters.
Hello everyone, I am a new member to this site and to quadcopters.
My experience in RC flying is a basic one, flying 3 channel indoor helicopters for the the last couple of years.
I had seen videos of quadcopters and thought " these look amazing but I could never hope to build one myself".
I am fortunate to work with a colleague who has been flying RC planes for a good few years and after showing him a video he went away and came back with one he built. This took him about a week and a half and although his build was a basic one the end result made me so excited, especially after he let me fly it. He was really impressed with my ability especially considering I have no proper helicopter or aeroplane experience.
I said his build was basic and here is a quick breakdown of what he has.
Motors; 4x1050kv brushless motors
ESC; 4x10amp 330x
Battery pack is 5000mah 11.1v
6 channel transmitter.
His frame is a box section aluminium 10mm x 10mm with a span of 600mm( I believe ) and he has customized a home security dome as a protective cover for his electronics.
I will take some pictures on Thursday when I get back to work but this system was extremely exciting to fly.
I know this a really basic setup, but it flies, and in time I know I will add more electronics to it such as alt and position hold and who knows where it will end up.
Sorry if my specs aren't very informative but I am really new to this so I am on a learning curve.
Please feel free to post your comments or suggestions as to this setup it could and probably will prove helpful to both my work colleague and myself.
