Yet another quad try...

Hi guys
I'm not so experienced as I should for this task, but I hope to learn as my project progressing. I built the frame and I'm a little heavy (aprox 750g with foto frame) so I'll give anotrer try with thinner (10x10mm) aluminium sticks, plexiglass plates and plastic screws...
While I'm waiting for the motors and ESC, I need to learn and understand better the phisics, how this thing moves. So I made a schema with what I think is happening when turn or move the quadcopter. But what I really need is you to corect this if I'm wrong! For this simple schema I "use" giro, but for my butterfly stability I'll find a cheap, good and easy to mount master controler.

You might like my effort in the link below. It may help you with your build.

This thread by SSM will probably be useful to you for the flight controls:

Both your links are great. I read your experience (now i'm on the fifth page) and I like the stability of your bird. That controler is fine, maybe I'll consider it... It comes with a manual or you knew somehow where to connect so many wires?

A very smart guy told me that for learnig the principles I can use 4 gyros, one for each rotor (but then I must synchronise them). A central controler board is though the sexy way

I attached the rpm variation representing the main moves for an X quad, too

It seems that my birdie only waits a master controler. I read about many but every thread has thousands of pages and that's a good thing, the bad one is that God give me just one life... So I think I will go/guess with QuadPower!
