Though I'm not an FPV race guy but rather hovering instead of fast forward flying, I decided to build one together with a friend.
We took all parts for the basic setup from the Flyduino Shop as it offers almost everything needed.

KISS FC Manual
KISS FC Update Instructions

KISS ESC24A Manual

KISS PDB for 24A Manual

We already had a few peripheral parts like the FPV cam and transmitter, lipos and RC receiver.
For a start we used an FrSky 8channel PPM receiver and a Taranis.
The X4RSB 3 receiver offers both S-Bus and S-Port (for telemetry) which we will use later.

The build consists of the following parts:

- Warthox MiniCP120 with carbon fibre arms

- KISS FC 32bit Flight Controller

My aim was to build a complete copter for the price of a GAUI344 brain (210$) or the ArduCopter APM/IMU combo (220$). Here's what came out:

The image shows a previous frame which I used to test the components. See my new frame for AP/AV below.

The original ArduCopter is a project of the DIY drones team.

The original ArduCopter has gone commercially now...

Meanwhile a very international and very active community used this blog to fill the gaps in the "original" project.

NOTE: The further development of the "official" Arducopter NG code was taken over by the Pirates!
ArduPirates are now teaming up and joining forces with the Arducopter Team.
