AD1 by ActionDrone. Folding carbon fiber frame with plug and play gimbal system!



AD1 the folding carbon fiber frame with PNP gimbal system for your GoPro3



This is a very well thought off designed quadcopter by Yoken that integrates a very good plug and play gimbal system. No programs to mess with. Just plug and play! This was designed in mind to create a very light folding frame that folds for portability! This is great for travelers who would like to bring back their memories through their GoPro3 lens.

PLEASE READ SOME OF THESE REVIEWS! They have very helpful tips to building and owning the AD1.

Tested some windy days well just around 10 mph wind and also on a bumpy golf cart ride. Here's a quick clip of it.

AD1 test flight on gusty 10mph wind and on a golf cart to test how well the gimbal works! (0 min 42 sec)

Received my order yesterday and started the build at night.. my first impression on this quad is great, seems like a well thought design.. i like the idea of using o rings on the motor mounts side making the entire body filtered from vibration..

I have yet to see if the plug and play brushless gimbal is indeed plug and play. If it is then, it i can say it worth it buying this frame.

Let me know if you need a manual. I'm working on cleaning it up. If you have any questions just email me and i'll help you out or Yoken can also help you out.

In regards to the gimbal it should just be plug and play as soon as you plug in the power. I have a separate battery plug in for the gimbal with a small 3s battery. It has 250mah battery and it last me pretty much 2 full battery flights at 4500mah each battery.

Are you using Naza M? They recommend that you program High. I always just leave everything stock.

4in1 ESC SimonK Flashed for AD1


Hey guys just wanted to give some first pictures for the
AD1 SimonK Flashed 4in1 25A ESC!!

* Simon K Flashed
* You can replace a damage ESC easily. Nothing is soldered.
* Just plug the wire leads to the side and screw it in from the bottom. Makes it easy to adjust your wire length if needed.
