Maiden Voyage of our Quadcopter

My son and I took our quadcopter out for its first flight. The controls are incredibly touchy, still a lot of tuning to do, but we managed to only fly it into a tree once and a rock wall once – and nothing broke 🙂

Its controller is a HobbyKing KK2.1 the code for which is also Open Source GPL!

More details soon – need to get this thing stabilized before we take it much higher 🙂
