The Newest Quad


My history with multi-rotor aircraft has involved only quads.

First Quad --> A used Gaui 300X-S.

Second Quad --> I built one from scratch using fairly inexpensive motors & ESC's, but included a good frame (LINK) and a decent control board (LINK).

Third Quad --> I was captivated by this company so I bought their all aluminum frame (LINK) and used another FY-90Q controller with these motors (this quad and build was described in an earlier blog here at rcgroups).

I'm currently building my fourth quad:
Frame --> HT-FPV (LINK)
Motors & ESC's --> Gens Ace (LINK)
Flight Controller --> DJI Naza (LINK)

The wiring harness is "done." Maybe I'm just incredibly slow but this took me about two hours to create from start to finish. The two JST taps are for either the voltage alarm system, LED lighting system, &/or when testing FPV equipment (actual FPV system has its own, separate power supply)

I realize the "Steps to Building A Quadcopter" is incomplete, probably needs to be rearranged, and could never adequately provide everything for everyone. It's just a sketch, a "visual checklist" of the steps that are or could be necessary when building a quad copter.
