It’s been a little bit since I blogged about my Quadcopter project, however things are coming along well. I just ordered what should be the second last part needed to get it in the air. This part was one of the more expensive parts, a Turnigy 9X transmitter and receiver module which started at 60 bucks but after adding shipping and converting it to Canadian it was double that. All I need now is to head down to the local hobby store and grab a battery for the quad. I’ll be sourcing that part locally since I don’t have much for options, LiPo batteries cannot be shipped by most companies.
So how’s my parts list looking? Well here’s the breakdown:

As you can see I’m already up to $277.42 Canadian, with a battery I’m looking at probably $350 for the whole setup. Â So that’s about on par with what I expected going into this. Not bad if you consider the fact that the charger and transmitter are bothÂ shared items that can be used with any future quads I built. Â Did I mention I plan on buildingÂ a 250 racing quad after this?
That’s it for today’s update. Â Next time you hear from me will most likely be when I’ve got all the pats and am ready to start building. I plan on making a video of it to update my long neglicted Youtube channel. Â Until then!
