Built a larger quadcopter

The tiny drones are great for indoors, but to carry cameras I needed something larger. A collection of parts and a 450mm frame was ordered and finally it's flying.


I'm using a Fly Sky FS T6 transmitter and receiver and a KK2.1 flight controller.


Neither the remote or controller came with the interconnecting cable so I'm using single wire jumpers until proper cables arrive. The flight controller was recommended by Terry and is great because you can test everything and tune it by using its built-in LCD display and buttons.


While I can fly this thing the PI tuning isn't right and I'm getting oscillations while hovering. Lots to learn. Lots to learn.
