Powerful quadcopter

Similar projects worth following
It's a quadcopter build to hold on strong winds and to carry some weight. It still lacks a UAV gear, so it will be able to control itself.

It's easy to control, the battery holds up to 15-25 minutes, depending on the pilot. It can lift some weight since it's a very powerful quad.

    To assemble the ESC to the control board, you have to connect the 3 colored cables(the thin ones) to the right side of the board, with the black or brown cable to the edge of the board. You don't have to connect power to the control board, these colored cables already bring the power.

Hi, sorry for the delay. I am working too much these last months. Well for starters, you need to order the parts. If you, as I did, order from another country, order some extra parts, because some may damage in the trip.
You will need to do a lot of soldering and assembling.
I Updated the components list, with brands and types directly from my purchases orders, so you will have the exact name of the components.
I will put some build instructions also, I hope it will help you!
