Quadcopter

The two mains events that got me into the RC Model world are when I saw my first UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) at my cousin’s wedding for photography. At that time, drones were very rare, and I thought it was a great idea to get shots from unusual angles! Later on, at the beginning of 2013, I’ve seen some videos on the internet and in particular some videos of Warthox. I was amazed of what you could do with a quadcopter!

Being curious and liking challanges, during summer 2013, I started to learn on how to build a quadcopter, the parts you need, an estimation of a price,... At the end of the summer, I got the parts from Hobbyking, and I started to build and fly my first quadcopter!

Here are the parts of my first quadcopter:

The transmitter I use is the Turnigy 9X and I chose to use a LiFe battery for it: HobbyKing 1500mAH LiFe 3S 9.9v

In order to charge my batteries, I use the Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger

Later on, in the beginning of 2016, I've built another quadcopter. This time, I needed a more powerful quadcopter to be able to carry a bigger load.

I unfortunately don't have enough time to write on how to build a quadcopter. There are already a bunch of tutorials on the internet.
