I’ve installed a CopterControl board from OpenPilot in my home brew Quadcopter.
It’s pretty impressive stuff.
Link to video on YouTube.
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…
