Build a Drone Part 1 – Select Components

Build a Drone Part 1 – Select Components

See http://BrainRight.com/Projects/Drone for more info and a parts list.

In this video series I show the design and construction of a quadcopter drone that will carry a stabilized camera platform for shooting aerial video. Part 1 covers all the main components and shows how I calculated the expected performance in order to optimize the design.

    Thank you for making this video. I’m planning to build a cheap drone that can carry a good camera to film aerial footage for my cycling channel. This sure helps.

    So my question is this. I was planning on buying the shell an already existing drone (like a mini Mavic or similar) and just adding the components that I wanted into it. would that work? and how would I calculate the size of the motor etc needed as the motors size used in the oe drones aren’t listed.?

    I am new to drones and really appreciate your video. I plan to watch the others also. I just have a few questions.
    1. About how much will the drone you are building cost?
    2. What is the maximum distance from home can it travel.
    3. How high can it go.
    Thank you

    WHAT WILL BE THE TOTAL COST

  35. arunachal pradesh on October 15, 2021 at 9:05 am

    SHOULD HAVE A MILLION VIEWS. YOUR EXPLANATION SIMPLIFY THE TECHNICAL DETAILS OF DRONE PARTS,

  36. h32gbx4 h32gbx4 on October 15, 2021 at 9:07 am

    3D Printed Frames doesnt matter if they are small (like 100mm)

  37. Arnav Kamatala on October 15, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Great video! I have a question though. For the ESC is there a problem having a 35A instead of the 18A you had in your video? Or is it the higher the better?

  38. washau 17 on October 15, 2021 at 9:08 am

    Amazing

    Can someone tell me what is the range of this drone

  41. Lionel Johnson on October 15, 2021 at 9:12 am

    What is the size of the 450 plate?

  42. Richard R on October 15, 2021 at 9:12 am

    Hello, I am new to building a drone or even owning a drone. I enjoyed you video and am going to watch the rest of the series this coming week. My sole purpose in learning how to build and fly a drone is for surf fishing. After watching your video I can now see myself expanding the use of a drone in my daily activities. Since my primary use will be taking my bait out further than I can cast the drone needs to be able to carry 3-5 lbs. 3-5 lbs. is a lot for a rig. I want the drone to be able to carry 100% more than the rig I am using because of the wind normally found at the beach. I believe that I will need the extra power to fight the wind. I will need to watch this video a few more times before I commit to purchasing the different parts I will need. I am considering making the frame out of wood since I already work with wood. Sorry for rambling on, it is well past my time to hit the hay.
