For Sale
Quadcopter For Sale-Witespy Quad-VC450 Frame

I am selling one of my quadcopters. It is a custom built Witespy Quad. Here is Witespys page:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=279815
He has built and sold a ton of Quadcopters. It was delivered the last week of March 2011. I purchased it mainly for a camera platform. I kept the PID sort of soft on it to allow for very smooth video and pictures. I put 3-bladed props on it to help make it more stable in the wind.

The frame is a VC450 from hoverthings.com. They sell a very strong buy light frame. http://www.hoverthings.com/catalog/p...5olpbo1d3gs890

It has the Arduino board with the Wii Motion Plus for Auto-level. I rarely used the auto level. The auto level is set a little strong to really maintain level flight.

The Witespy Quad thread has a lot of information about these custom built quads. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...16168&page=122

I posted a manual on how to setup this quad back in April. It will tell you exactly how to download the software and how to adjust, trim, and tweak the quad. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1#post18083802

Included with the quad you will get the FTDI card that plugs into the board and standard USB cable to make your adjustments.

The Quad is ready to go, all you need is a 2200 mah battery. The quad is set up with a Spektrum 6100E receiver. I flew it with a DX-6i. You will have to set you radio up with the correct ATV settings as described in the manual listed two paragraphs above this one. The Witespy Quad has a double-tab lower plate for mounting a camera. I carried a Go Pro mostly. It would haul it around no problem. I sometimes used a 3000 mah pack and it still flew just fine.

It has Turnigy C2830-1050 motors and Hobby King ESCs.

I am asking only $275 for the quad NOT INCLUDING shipping. I will ship the method you choose and add that to the price of the quad. The props will be removed for shipping.

Email me if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.

Only reason selling is I built another quad. Same basic quad but used a Quadrino board. The new quad and the new board work OK but to be honest, not as smooth as the quad I'm selling. I always liked the way this quad flew. Selling to buy some FPV gear.
