Interested in getting a Mikrokopter hex or a droidworx hex. How hard is set up?


I have a lot of experience with helicopters and airplanes and I'm wanting to get into ap with a multi rotor. Not a whole lot on how to set up one of these on the websites or here. I'm just wondering if I will be getting in over my head? What should I expect? Thanks.

There will be some setting up to do... Be prepared to read quite a bit of documentation (and to be frustrated when you only can find what you are looking for in German :P), and to be very thorough in your building (test all solder connections and so on) as the MK isn't cheap at all :S

All that said, it's absolutely worth it!

Hoverfly seems to be worth considering as well.

The hoverfly board is really nice since it doesn't have internal ESC's. Which is what I would like. just like all the other toys I play with. No pricing on the link, which usually means $$.

I'm toying with the Gaui, which will help me understand the basics. The nicer ship would be something I want to buy now but assemble later and do it myself.

Hi,
if you have a lots of experience in RC devices, mounting a multirotor won't be so difficult.
There is a big comunity on multirotors, lots of website about mounting

About the frames: there is an alternative to droidworks for professionnal frames today ( my webshop )

As for me I would prefer off the shelve plug and play type without having to mess with the coding and programing much.
I rather spend more time flying than scratching my head in frantic how to get it to work right.
Maybe its just me.

Happy New Year.

It' all depends of what you want to do
If it's a hobby then you can pick up the QC450 from conrad, the parrot AR drone or the gaui.
If you plan to make some photos or if you plan to have a professionnal activitie you will have to put the finger inside the beast ^^

I already have the drone and just finished the gaui. The gaui will be great for FPV but I need a heavy lifter. Someone aproached me about a project and I need to lift at least 1-2 pounds.
