You're welcome. Good luck. I'm still flying mine for exercises.

Hey Folding.

Thanks for keeping the thread updated. Makes it a lot easier for us "noobs"... Anyways I am just about to start printing parts. I was wondering how far the document containing parts etc. is?

Also, do you have any suggestions for a flight controller which supports "automated" flight. I was thinking of getting a Pixhawk but it's a little expensive so I am looking at other options.

pixhawks are nice. Yuneec is also using those. But even with my SPRacing F3 and iNav on it, you can fly waypoints. I think other FCs also can do that. Here is a nice overview of different projects: https://blog.dronetrest.com/flight-controller-firmware/

Hey again Folding.

I've tried drawing/painting up a sketch showing the details of the wiring of this drone. As this is my first RC project I had a little difficulty finding out how to wire the different components. I was hoping you could answer some questions and clarify the wiring process.

How are the motors, StarF3S and FC connected to eachother? Did you supply power(battery) to the StarF3S and then 5V/GND to the SP F3?

Best regards.

Nice diagram and great that you are sharing it, @anonflem
I'm building the 4.1 Naza so not directly useful to me :-( however you've inspired me try to do something similar once I get mine wired (which will be some time since I'm still waiting for the flight controller to arrive).

hey @foldingLlama

How did you do the powerbetween the SP F3 and the StarF3S. Are you powering both boards individually or are you powering one trough the other?

best regards.
