I bought an ArduPilotMega 2.0 - want to build a quadrotor - now what? Answered
So, I'd like to build a quadrotor. I looked at plans out there and it seemed that an ArduPilotMega 2.0 controller was cheaper than the old ArduPilotMega + IMU board, and more advanced. So I bought it. But I don't understand a lot of the terminology the RC / UAV crowd throws around, all I know is it's basically an Arduino - which I have used - with special logic for flight stuff like gyros and multiplexing. Besides that, I don't know where to start. I know I need to get some lightweight brushless DC motors, radios and a radio controller unit. but what type, etc.. ? Where do I start?
