In this article I am going to demonstrate what you need in order to build your own Quadcopter. This project is going to be split into 6 Chapters which cover the build step by step so that you can follow this guide if you like. I want to point out that I am by far no professional and that I do not have the best soldering skills, but because of the fact that I love the hobby and I love creating videos, I hope you enjoy this project. Thanks and if you liked it, feel free to rate this article, RC-Creator.
Chapter 1 - Parts & Setup
In this chapter I am going to talk about what parts I used and what the setup is going to be like. This covers motors/ESCs and props as well:
Here is a list of the parts I used:
Chapter 2 - Frame Construction
Building the frame for my Quadcopter using the Turnigy Talon V2 Frame from HobbyKing is the topic of this chapter.
Chapter 3 - Power System
I am going to display step by step how to solder your ESCs to your motors, how to install the motors on your quad as well as installing the ESCs/ wiring your ESCs to the powerline.
I am sorry for the length of this Chapter. That is why I created the menu which is supposed to help you skip to the parts of your interest.
CHAPTER 4 - KK2 Board, ESC Calibration, Throttle Range & Props
In this chapter I am installing the KK2 Board on my quadcopter, calibrate the ESCs so they will not turn off the power to my motors due to a low voltage, I am going to calibrate the throttle range as well as balance and install the props on the motors.
CHAPTER 5 - Preflight Checklist & Maiden Flight
CHAPTER 6 - Adjustments & Advanced Settings
This video will be posted soon!
