New Quadcopter

Quadcopter maiden

I managed to get my Quadcopter maidened. I went off to do some tests on a local soccer field but it was busy so I had to go to an empty car park instead – Tarmac is not the surface I wanted to maiden on… About -1 degree Celsius and a bit of wind so …

Quadcopter lights

From below rear side

I mounted some white LED strips to the Quadcopter. The strips can be cut in pieces of 3LED’s and then you solder wires to next segment or to power. Here is what the Quadcopter looks like now. All are LEDstrips are joined with a 3S LIPO alarm and connected to the balance port on the …
