Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Frame

The frame is important because it is where to put the Other Components of Multicopter . Like Mobil , the Frame Body of Multicopter .

Frame type adapted to the needs . For his own material there are various kinds such as PCBs Fiber , Aluminum , Glass Fiber , Carbon , even some made of wood .

Step 2: Motor OR Rotor

Motor is used as the player vane in order homemade quadcopter you can fly and maneuver . There are so many types of motorcycles sold in the market , but there are some things that are required of you noticed. Motor kilovolt be sorted by size , the higher the faster his kV motors also can rotate. Usually when you buy a special bike quadcopter , you will get the specifications such as : how much amperage required ESC and propeller size recommendations .

Step 3: ESC (Electronic Speed Controls)

ESC

or Electronic Speed Controls is a component that works set on each motor rotation speed . You need four pieces of ESC are connected to each of the four motors earlier.

Later, the ESC is connected to the battery as a power source via a socket or via power distribution board first. The level of accuracy of motor rotation is very important to maintain the stability quadcopter , so use the appropriate and qualified ESC .

As a recommendation , use ESC contained therein Simonk Firmware , firmware is able to change the refresh rate of the ESC so as to provide instructions per second more than the ESC to the motor

Step 4: Flight Controller

This is the central component of a Quadcopter , in the board Flight Controller on duty there gyroscope sensor for determining the orientation of motion and accelerometer sensor that reads the speed and slope of the quadcopter .

Step 5: Radio Transmitter Dan Receiver

To be more simple , we call it the Remote Controller . If you want to use Flight Controller HobbyKing KK2.0 , at a minimum you should buy a remote controller that has 4 channels .

Usually to control quadcopter , could use 9xR Turnigy brand , the brand is very popular in Indonesia so you will have no trouble in finding this stuff . Turnigy 9xR has 9 channel , so you can use this remote to other projects in the future .

Step 6: Propeller

Better known as Propeller , to create artificial quadcopter you fly , propeller used is 2 pairs pair rotates clockwise and another pair rotates counter-clockwise or so-called pusher .

Step 7: Battery

Typically , quadcopter using the battery types LiPo ( lithium polymer ) , for the project in this article , use a LiPo battery with 3000mAh 3S1P 20C specification . Means the battery capacity is 3000mAh , 3S1P means 3 cell mounted in parallel , with each cell has a 3.7 volt battery means is the voltage of 11.1 volts . while C stands for Capacity, so 20 C with 3000mAh means 20 * 3000 = 60000mAh = 60 A. 60A was issued battery current in a moment .

The greater capacity of the battery , the greater its enormous size , the larger the size of the batteries will add to the load received by quadcopter .

Step 8: Charger

LiPo battery charging process has a difficult process because the charger must charge and discharega on some cell in a LiPo battery at the same time .

The most popular and widely available on the market are trademarks of IMAX B6 Lipo Balance Charger , because it is believed to have the stability of charging .

    Answer 1 year ago

    For the stability, you should get a control board that is very modular. What I mean by this is something you can plug GPS and Gyros Into. I would recommend ArduPilot (Make sure you buy a GPS!) or the JIYI P2 system (This board comes with a GPS module!). The only problem with these board is that they can be a bit more expensive. As for the weight, since all you are adding is the GPS module, your quad will only be a few grams heavier (Unless, of course, you add things like On Screen Dislays, or LED power modules. Also if you are looking into looking for your own components, or just a nice way to look at all of your parts at once, make a copy of this spreadsheet :

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MnNZ1nirO6...

    All you need to do is plug in the numbers. Google sheets will do the rest (Totals, and units). I hope this helped you. Happy flying!

    Question 2 years ago on Step 1

    If we were to choose between a carbon and a glass frame which would be you pick? State your answer with the correct reason of you choice ?

    Answer 1 year ago

    I would suggest carbon fiber frame if you are looking into racing. I'd suggest this because carbon fiber is durable enough for those high-speed crashed, and it is incredibly light. However, if you are more into photography, or hauling other heavier equipment, I'd suggest glass fiber. The reason being is that the glass fiber frames are sturdier for carrying all of that equipment. They are also bigger; giving you more room for cameras, sensors gimbals, etc. Best of luck to you, and your building! Hope this helped!
