This is awesome. Enjoy.
My quadcopter parts arrived from China last week, a nicely packed box with everything I'll need... well I say everything but there was one thing missing. Instructions! I ordered a kit from ebay which included a frame, motors, ESCs, control board, props etc. On opening up the package I had the realization that it wasn't going to include any instructions and I was going to have a pile of parts, nuts and bolts of varying sizes and shapes and no clue what goes where.
The kit I ordered came with a X525 frame
Knowing the model number of the frame I set about searching online for at least some resemblance of instructions on how to get the frame together. I found a couple of PDFs from different sites that I'm going to use as a rough guide but for the most part its gonna have to be trial and error.
Stay tuned as I try to turn this pile of random hardware and parts into something that flies. Could be a laugh.
I've been researching building my own quadcopter for ages now. There are lots of people out there making them and there is also a handful of different open source projects that allow for fully autonomous GPS guided solutions. (Aeroquad,ArduCopter) This is my ultimate aim, to create something I can program to go here and there and let it do its thing. Its going to be a while until I get to that point but I've ordered my first batch of parts from ebay. They are coming from china so fingers crossed they make it in one piece.
Here is a really neat example of what they can do.
