Drones and ROVs and Arduinos

A journey building drones and ROVs and other open hardware and Arduino based stuff

Arducopter arrived at home

Just wanted to share my excitement about the arrival of my Arducopter.

Want to thank and congratulate with Jani for the super fast shipping (despite more than one month of wait in the pre-order list): the box left the office last Friday and this morning, Monday, 3 days later with a weekend in between, it arrived at my place, in Bruxelles (Belgium)
Here is the content of the box:

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 🙂
