Quadcopter in the Gustav Vigeland Sculpture Park

I’ve installed a CopterControl board from OpenPilot in my home brew Quadcopter.

It’s pretty impressive stuff.

The camera is a 808 HD. And the build log is in Norwegian: Part 1 and Part 2. Here is the Google Translate version: Part 1 Google Translate and Part 2 Google Translate.

Now I just need to buy a GoPro HD Hero 2. I’ve already ordered a stabilizing mount.

Cost and flight time

$200,- for the quad (frame, motors, speed controllers etc)
$100,- for the Copter Control Board
$25,- for a 2500 mAh battery giving 10 minutes for flight time
$70,- for a second hand Futaba 8U radio

Build time: approx 10 hours

Time spent learning how this stuff works, learning to fly, waiting for parts from china: don’t know…
