Flight Controller—on the way – Entry 5

By | September 5, 2014

Been some time since I posted an update; not much to update here.  Purchased the flight controller yesterday and should have it on Tuesday next.  Of course, does no good without the rest of the components, which I seem to keep tweaking.  I may have to shut down the idea of the Sunnysky pancake motors as many reports have the FY680 Pro motor mounting holes not aligning properly.  I’m looking at some alternatives, but have decided to stay with 580KV and will purchase Afro ESCs.  What I did get with the FC was the following:

  • 3DR Pixhawk flight controller
  • uBlox GPS w/compass
  • 933mhz telemetry kit
  • External LED and switch

The parts are now located where it can do the most good; at my brother’s house where we will be doing the build.  Looking forward to getting this thing really started.
