Raven Quadracopter

Flies around

So I have always wanted to build a Quadracopter and I finaly did it. A special thanks to hardmouse who donated the an old GAUI frame that I was able to hack up to add my own landing gear, build custom motor mounts out of aluminum and threw in my own electronics! The brains of the operation is a hobbyking Quadracopter control board that uses 3 gyros to stabilize the quad and send control signals to ESCs to control the Quad.

Nice, that's a mean looking quad copter you've built.

What batteries have you got on there?

Can't wait to see the FPV working!

Thanks for the kind words. In theory this thing packs a lot more punch than kit Quads but I haven't been able to push it anywhere close to it's limits. The video you see is at about 30% throttle. 

The battereis are 3 cell 11.1V Lipos with 2200maH and a max discharge rate of about 70C. 

Great job Gonzik! I am glad to see it fly again. That extended cross bar seems pretty nice to give it more stabilized flight.
