After weeks having fun with my little Hubsan X4 mini quadcopter, I decided to upgrade to something with a little more kick, the trial & error I had will be outlined in this post, hopefully it will help others that’s having issues getting off the ground!
This build is focused on the X525 Quadcopter with the KKMulticopter V5.5 Blackboard flight controller running XCopter v4.7 firmware by kapteinkuk
Paddy & Myself took our first road trip through to Falkland to check out the bike park, We had a brilliant day out and loads of fun, few crashes but everything was great. Filmed on GroPro 3 (white) (720-50fps)
There are a ton of different types of Arduino boards, and figuring out which one you want isn’t always an easy process. Over on Tested, they break down the main differences between the most common Arduino boards.
After a few weeks playing with my arduino, It started to become clear that I would need a way to start storing some data, I had already ordered a network shield which has a built in micro sd slot, but that wouldn’t be with me, for at least a week… so I had to find another way.
A few weeks back I stumbled on this forum thread at the replica prop forum, Darkside501st released his pepakura paper/foam files, this my build…
Big thanks to Darkside501st for the files,
(if you want to build your own suit, visit the forum and talk to Darkside, he will give you the password to the pepakura designer files,
this will allow you to scale and re-size the pieces to fit you.)
