X468 Traveller quad

Just finished my build. It flies like it’s on rails. With plenty of power. And it’s silent and nearly vibration free.


It folds in the best possible way so that it is easy to carry in a bag or suitcase.

I’ll post videos later.

A video and a story about how I got rid of vibrations.

It carries my GoPro with clear jello-free images. But I still need to do some work on the smallest vibrations if I want to film with my Canon S100.

  1. Roughly $500,- + flight controller. And that would add approx $250,- if you want the Naza. So, $750,- in total.

    But much cheaper if you buy cheaper motors (they’re $50,- each) and cheaper props (they’re $10,- each). It flies perfectly well with a $15,- KK controller or maybe a $99,- Rabbit.

    Hei, jeg følger prosjektene dine med stor interesse. Jeg har planer om å bygge meg en Quadcopter. Jeg ønsker å bygge meg et copter som er sterkt nok til løfte mit GoPro kamera. Jeg har en 7 kanaler Hi-Tec radio som jeg ønsker å bruke. Ser du har bygd et som ser ut som kommer fra et kit (X468) og et som er homebrew. Hva anbefaler du å starte med? Fint om du kan dele part listen og hvir du har handlet delene fra.

    Hi, i’m a student currently undergoing a college project to design a R/C Quadcopter for use by sheep farmers, i am just wondering how much flight time you get out of your quad copter with the camera equipment attached?

    Many Thanks :)
