I guess you have more faith in the efficiency of those motors than I do.

Coming soon (in the next published build):

CopterControl now supports Futaba S.Bus receivers (0 min 36 sec)


Native S.Bus support requires only 3 wires from receiver to the board.

Oh very nice Oleg, I think the camera stuff is not far out either. Support for flybarless heli is also moving along. All very exciting.

Nice Idea, I would think you would want to use the same equipment used on your MultiCopter, same motor spacing and as close to the same weight as possible to get close testing.

Why is this P-I-D setting must be done? Isn't this done with PC-"quadro..." configuration via PC where you set all settings?

+1 to be honest that is not gonna help you tune correctly. Just build a gyro stand to mount your copter on. I have seen a few diff ones but dont have a link.

Success


This is my first multicopter. My own design and built in the last two weeks. What you see (hopefully I will be successful in linking the video) here is a video of the first three flights. I was so exited I drained the pack, a good 12 minutes of flying I put back 2111mAh in to a 2200 3s pack. I was #45 on the first batch of CC boards in the US. I am totally satisfied.

I think it took me more time to edit the video than to actually build the quad.

First Quad (7 min 5 sec)


Without batteries it weighs 617.5 grams.

Vip.
