A practical approach to RC planes

Motors, Mounts, and Arms

The HobbyKing Gear!

The HobbyKing order arrived today. Time for some quick unwrapping and building.

RotorBone meet Park300

The RotorBone mounts aligned great to the bolt pattern on the motor. The included screws were a bit short and should be replaced with longer ones. In due time.

Quadcopter Arms

It only took about 30 minutes to bolt up all the motors and to cut the lengths of wood.

  • 1 – 20 inch for the main arm
  • 2 – 9 3/4 inch for the secondary arms
  • 1 – 5″ x 5″ plexiglass square (main deck)

Tomorrow I’ll continue with the build focusing on completing the airframe. It should be interesting to see how everything turns out. I am not using plans and more or less making it up as I go along. Stay tuned.

Follow the full build process from the beginning:

    Nice work and very cool stuff!!
    I spent some time on eCalc and the Turnigy Park300 motors look like they would perform very efficiently with a 2s battery and a 10×4.5 prop. They are not a motor that is being talked about on the regular quadcopter forums.

    How does your copter fly?
    What prop and battery combination did you settle on?
    What is did your total weight come it at?

    Thanks again for your informative blog and posting your build files.
