Very good to see, only thing may missing is the I2C row, what do you think.
Oh and after you cleared the things so well.
I will give a little confusion, i skiped the D37 on Flyduino 2.1 and put a 3.3V in place of the D37, so we have the 3.3V also on the I2C.
let's get this through pm

this 450 skid fits well.
This fixed version works well, but a non fixed may better.
But this one works much better then i look like as the clamp clamps nicely, 2 zip ties and you are ready.

500 gear

Looks good.

On the Flyduspider I went with the 500 align gear also. Looks just right. Not too much extra weight.

Sorry for the bad quality pic.------cheap camera.

Whoaa good one, last year I asked questions like this too, but only in private... ;-)

Thats no Problem - just kidding. You have to connect the flyduino to the input of the ESC you normally connect to the rx, and the rx to the flyduino. Just look at the beginning of this thread, this explains a lot, if you have further questions, feel free to pm me, I may help u.

Hiya,

We all had the same questions in the begining and it wasnt easy to answer then, but now we have the flyduino thanks to paul and it makes everything a lot easier.
Basicaly each motor has an ESC(electronic speed controller) connected through the end with three thickish wires, the end with two thickish wires is your power input a + and a -
the servo style connector is connected to the flyduino where it says motor 1, motor 2 etc.
Your receiver is connected where it says throttle pitch roll yaw etc.
That is basically it, but you need to read a fair bit to understand which motor goes where and how to arrange the power supply etc.
It takes a bit of learning especially if you dont have an electronic background(im a carpenter) but that is part of the enjoyment of building and flying multies so just take your time and ask if in doubt.
They are generally a friendly lot on this forum and have all been where you are now so most are willing to help if you ask.
And finally Welcome to the world of Multicopters

Ray

Modify

Paul,
For my future build, Do you think that your quad frame could be modified to make it a Tricopter frame.?

I would order that quad kit/alum tubes and drill 2 holes for the rear part of the frame and insert aluminum leg to fit the quad frame.? --result is a tricopter frame.

I really like the quality of your frame parts.

ok so
the 3 pin connector from esc go where it say motr 1 2 3 4 5 6 according to the scheme ( tri quad octo ecc) in my case quad x shaped
Front right to 5
Rear right to 3
Rear left to 6
Front left to 2
The motors connection rack is composed by 3 pin for red black and yellow line, if I am using an external bec so I suppouse I can use only the black and red wire and leave without pin the middle line of pin marked as NC, is it ok?
So black on GND red on 13 and nothing on NC Is this correct?

what are used for serial 1 and serial 2?
Where I have to connect the BEC 5volts?
Have I to connect the red wire of battery on the IN pin ( 12 volts) also if I will use a separate bec?
in the lower right part ther are six pin ( CAM Gimbal) what are they used for?
I am still waiting the receiver ( economic turnigy x9) , so I don't know what kind connection it has, where i can take the power for it?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE !!!
