A few months ago I got started in the hobby of RC multi rotors and specifically quad copters.
My first quad was based on a 3d printed design downloaded from thingiverse and modified through several iterations.
This quad is big and heavy and gives me about 5 minutes flight time from a 2200mah lipo pack so I decided to go for something smaller and more manoeuvrable with the ability to easily add FPV gear to it.
To meet these goals I’ve decided to build a small 250 H quad based on a carbon fibre frame from Banggood so let’s get to it.
Motors, Esc’s & Props – This combo package from myrcmart.com but any similar sized motor, esc etc… can be used
RC Receiver – Any suitable 6 channel receiver that matches your TX
Battery – 1400mah + I’m using these from hobbyking
Flight Controller – At the moment I’m going to use the FC from my other quad which is a Multiwii Pro 2.0 from witespyquads but I intend to eventually put one of their Flip 32+ FC’s on this quad which is equivalent to a Full Naze 32
That’s all for now hopefully the frame will be delivered this week and I can get that build and take some pictures whilst waiting for the other parts to be delivered.
