Getting a quadcopter stable in the air isn’t trivial. Stability of a quadcopter relies on the harmonious working of all of it’s parts.
Scout UAV store is open! You can now buy the latest revision of Scout, Scout 3 as kit or just the airframe. Due to price increases from the supplier Scout 3 kit is now $360 instead of $350. The Scout 3 airframe is now $225. Head over to store.scoutuav.com for more details on Scout 3. I am shipping worldwide.
I have notice that several of the items in the “Parts List” are consistently “out of stock”. If you choose to build Scout, I have managed to secure the ESC’s, motors, and propellers. I have installed and tested all the items and recommend them for the Scout build-log. They are really nice components. I have chosen these parts for their high efficiency. The high efficiency of these parts will extend flight times. I am working on getting more items in the store, stay tuned!
This video is the first flight with an onboard camera. At the time I was still testing Scout’s flying behavior with the added weight of the camera. The extra weight of the camera decreases Scout’s agility. The onboard camera was a ContourGPS.
