This was my second quadcopter build, but first one documented… The post is here.

Built for fun and to learn to fly a quadcopter. More than capable to carry a GoPro.


  • Motors: Turnigy Aerodrive 940kv
  • Props: 10 x 4.5 SF
  • Flight controller: APM
  • ESC: 25 amps Turnigy
  • Frame: 500mm from rotor to rotor, aluminium

Current configuration:

  • APM 2.5 (upgradable and reprogrammable, original, not clone)
  • GPS uBlox with 3D printed case for extra protection (color red), excellent waypoint navigation
  • Voltage / Current sensor connected to the APM
