  1. Hey, is there any video, to see your quad in action?

  2. Hi
    I am new to this and I have the exact frame and motor. How did you mount the motor onto the frame as the holes don’t really match. Did you use the prop saver? I didn’t see it in the picture of the quadcopter.



    • Hi.
      I simply mounted the motors with some 3 mm zip ties. 2 on each motor. It works quite well. And no i didn’t use the prop savers, i really wouldn’t recommend using them. Use the prop adapters i linked to instead they are much better!

  3. Thanks for the input!

  4. Do I need the “KK multicopter controlboard v5.5 with Xcopter configuration” and the “HobbyKing KKv2.1 Quadcopter controller board” for my Quad to work? Or can I use any of those two?

  5. Hi!
    Im planning of building a quadrotor and I have few questions/explanations concerning that setup?

    1. Why 750kv motors?
    2. Slow fly propellers?
    3. What flight time I should be expecting from 2800mah battery?
    4. How much can this kind of copter lift and still be flyable?
    5. Why the 2 chargers?

    Some of those might seem silly questions but it would help me to figure out my final design.


    • Hi.
      1. They provided a great deal of lift which i needed. The lower the KV the higher the power – usually. Also, less KV means less motor vibrations.
      2. They were cheap and seemed to provide the biggest lift. + they dont react as fast as other propellers which i thought was a good idea as a beginner.
      3. Around 6-8 minutes per battery depending on your setup. I get around 6-8 minutes now with my H-copter, but that almost weighs 2kg with battery and GoPro mounted.
      4. A thumb rule, always make sure your motors can lift twice as much the weight of your copter. That means it your copter weighs 2 kg’s you need a lift of 4 kg. This is the most efficient although you can still fly it if it weighs more. With these motors i chose, and 12 inch props you get little over a kg. thrust per motor – in total a littler over 4kg of thrust. That meaning your copter should weigh in about 2 kg. or less.
      5. I’m not sure i understand this question? Which 2 chargers are you taking about?

  6. I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to be using? I’m having some small security issues
    with my latest site and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  7. Hey man,

    Amazing working with the picture. I am about to start building a quadcopter. I was wondering pictures showing how did you mount all of this together, a how to guide. Also as far a the configuration goes how will one do that. And you don’t need servos for a quadcopter? I am sorry for the stupid question. Anyway i can message you personally to not look like a complete idiot?

    • Hey there! If you look under the “How to’s” tab you’ll find a “Complete Quadcopter Guide”. Most of what you ask is already covered in there just with a selfbuilt frame. Go take a look at that. And no, you don’t need servos on a Quadcopter. The speed of the motors controlled by the Flight controller defines whether it turns, flys straight, hovers, tilts and so on. Have a nice day!

  8. How much does all of these parts cost?

  9. Which radio do I get?

  10. Your Great Thanks!!

  11. What charger do I get?
