A journey building drones and ROVs and other open hardware and Arduino based stuff
Just wanted to share my excitement about the arrival of my Arducopter.
In main box the full arducopter kit, then 2 sets of spare propellers (you never know what you can hit, and propellers are the first thing to break), the magnetometer and a crash kit (one complete arm).
As a side note, I was not able to close the box after I took the additional items out: the guys that packed it must have insane packaging skills for having assembled this 3D puzzle 🙂
Here some additional pictures:
Impressed by the size of the box: I expected it to be bigger, while it is pretty small. Look at the iPhone cover I used as reference. Positively impressed: less problems for storing it away 🙂
More pictures are available on my Flickr set: Arducopter build log
Let me know your thought on this.
Hope to be able to start working on it soon 🙂
