Anyone here on the marketplace built their own quad/hex helicopter?
I’ve almost got all the parts for mine, waiting on a few more deliveries and then I can start construction. yay!
This is what a hexacopter looks like flying: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lg2RtLyxxwo
Thanks envato buyers for funding this little hobby! There will be an envato sticker placed on it It’s great motivation to finish work & support tickets so I can play after hours.
Wow! What a beast! Congrats on picking up such a fun hobby. Would love to get my hands on a tutorial to build one of these! I would mount it with cameras like the AR drone
That looks really heavy and powerful, what’s the max. alt. he can get? Looks like a good toy dangerous toy, you can even cut your lawn with it .
Probably need a pair of a good earmuff to go with that as well. That’s one loud machine!
Awesome choice. I’ve never built them, but I had a chance to fly several copters, ranging from simple toys up to multi-gyro hex copters. Did you also think about adding a GOPRO ? one of the main advantages of multi-propeller systems is their stability and capacity to carry minor loads (such as the gopro cam ) and of course their max altitude! Good luck with the build mate, and don’t shy away from posting some updates on it p.s: buy a second and third battery, if you haven’t already! it’s a must if you intend to use it for proper training sessions longer than 10-15 minutes. Nothing sucks more than having the time, going on a nice isolated spot, and after 10 minutes of joy, having to drive back because the battery is dead and you don’t have a loaded spare on you
wow that`s awesome man ! Don`t forget to post a photo when finished
cheers and have fun man!
I have been flying rc copters for a short time myself and they are very difficult to fly. Recently I went down to a local airport and actually got to fly a real helicopter. I was surprised by how much easier it was to fly. Much more stable. It was a lot of fun. Here is the chopper I am flying currently http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_r7TfOq98k it is called the “blade SR” it has an identical big brother the blade 450x http://www.horizonhobby.com/products/blade-450-x-bnf-BLH4380 This is the one I bought my dad for christmas
