Build your own drone for just $60 with this DIY kit

Originally published at:

If someone wants to put together their own drone, they can choose the number of props, the motor size, the type of propeller, the programming for the autopilot… all that stuff can be ordered from Hobbyking and assembled like its a desktop computer any more.

…and if someone doesnt want to go to that trouble, already assembled machines can be had for comperable prices or less.

This isnt going to be bought by a drone hobbyist for themselves, its going to be bought as a gift by someone who thinks its a fun idea.

“a resistance of 2-10 Ohms/cm.”

That’s not bad, but the power to the motors is the critical path for how long the drone flies. Draw the lines heavy.


Yes but does it drone like this? Thought not:
