MILESTONE

450 size quadcopter assembly

I assembled the quadcopter earlier today.

I’ve also completed the basic setup and calibration on the software side which included

  • Frame type setup
  • Peripheral selection and setup
  • Accelerometer and compass setup
  • RC Radio setup
  • Telemetry radio setup

I’m yet to take the quadcopter outdoors to test the GPS.

Here are the tutorials I followed to get here.

Thanks to Abhi Verma, John Rodrigues, Steven Reubenstone and Tom Coleman

Thanks John. We can test near Claran's place as it’s quite calm over there.

Harsha Revalla I searched for solenoid. And I don’t think they are good for this purpose. The smallest i found having 0.3 newton force. I.e. Only 30 grams. While we can use 9g servo or smaller one having much more power to carry the bait. Also servo doesn’t require continuous power to hold the position but solenoid needs that.
What you say?

Abhi Yeah, a servo does sound better. I’m thinking 18g metal gear servo.
