Complete Noob wanting to build a mavic clone
« on: July 18, 2018, 01:05:33 PM »
So being an r/c helicopter pilot (own a Trex 600) old now but I can still comfortably fly it, have wanted a drone for a long time.

My first question would be if I could build a clone with the follow me function to be able to take videos while I ride my MTB bike?

My second question is there a recommended list of electronics for this drone?

Thank you

Everyone seems to use different parts so it comes down to what setup works for you.
Also check out the build diaries fo more info.

Thanks for the input been browsing the build diaries...

What about the follow me feature, any resources I can look at around that, or is it a pipe dream at this stage?

Thanks
