quadcopter is an unmanned helicopter having four rotors.

quadcoptor is also known as drone that are use to take video ,pictures and also for transportation etc. quadcopter has four motor that choose the direction of copter .

here i will show you easy way to build a quadcopter using cc3d flight controller board (FCB) ,that have easy interface. The quadcoptor are controlled via rc remote .

you can easily build in one day if all required material is present .

Step 1: Requirements

  • quadcopter frame
  • Brushless motor (4)
  • ESC 30A (4)
  • cc3d flight controller board
  • 10x4.5 inch propeller (4)
  • 11.1v lipo battery
  • balance charger for lipo battery
  • fs-i6 transmitter and receiver
  • male female usb connector
  • mini B type usb cable

Step 2: Solder ESC and Fit Frame

1.Take a ESC and insert it into one arm of copter and solder it on lower part of frame ,that have power distribution board. do it with all four.

2. Take Screw and fit the arms and motor with help of screw driver .

Step 3: Set the Cc3d and Parts

1. Solder Two wire on the supply side of board.

2.Connect all four esc to the cc3d board's four pins . the sequence of the esc's are shown in picture .make sure signal wire is upper side of board in my case white is signal wire.

3. fix the cc3d board on the frame make sure the usb port on the cc3d facing backward side of copter.
