I have an electric plane, and I was thinking of diving into something hoverable. I really like the DIY-ability of the quadrotor, so here's what I was thinking:
$12 - HobbyKing Q450 V3 frame
$30 - HobbyKing KK2.1 flight controller
$13 x 4 - Turnigy Plush 25A ESC
$7 - Turnigy BESC programming card
$16 x 4 - Turnigy Aerodrive SK3, 2822-1090kv motors
$4 - SF 8x4.5 props 4 pack
$10 x 2 - Zippy 3S 25C 2200mAh
$54 - Turnigy 9X with module
Does this sound viable? I found a similar build online to start with.
Battery question - I have a 3S 25C 1300mAh battery for my airplane. Is there something I could modify on the quad to run the same batteries as the plane? It is a StevensAero Squirt with a 400XT 1000kv brushless I believe.
