Why not just have fun today?

Yes, a lot of work on this project!! But... If the goal was to build a recreational eVTOL, why not just have fun today?

Bom dia, Macelo, meu nome é Rommel Castro.

Sou velejador, e estudei por conta propria todo um curso da Westlaw onde me permitiu a ter o conhecimento sobre aerodinamica, e hidrodinamica, com este conhecimento projetei e construi 3 barcos de 25 pes. Sempre fui um apaixonado pela aviaçao, entretanto tive de optar para velejar já que ficava mais em conta. Por gostar muito, sempre olhava os amigos do radio controlado, drones, mais o tempo sempre era dedicado para velejar, onde tiver oportunidade de navegar no Oceano Atlantico, Atlantico Leste, e Atlantico Norte. Recebi um drone do meu filho de presente e nunca usei, agora que dar um destino de uso a ele e já estou começando a usar. Vi uma…

Dear Marcelo, hello.

My name is Vova. I live in Germany. I have been dreaming of making a small drone that I could fly for a long time. Unfortunately, most existing devices of this type are very expensive. They cannot be purchased by an ordinary person. I was very impressed with your project. You have inspired me to start working towards my own drone. I do not yet have sufficient knowledge in this area. Would you be so kind as to advise me on the initial electronic components for such a drone. I mean motors, controllers, etc.

I will be very grateful for your help.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards

Hi Vova,

I assume you are talking about small drones (not eVTOLs).

The first step to be familiarized with this technology is to buy a "pre-made" frame, such as these ones: https://www.racedayquads.com/collections/frames.

Then, you need to choose a flight controller. I advise you to look for one that runs with an open-source software (such as Ardupilot). I personaly like the Pixhawk4 (http://www.holybro.com/product/pixhawk-4/). They have combos that include the GPS and powerboard, which are necessary.

Then you have to buy the ESC's (https://www.racedayquads.com/search?type=product&q=motors**), which are the controller for the motors. By the way, I advise you to start with just 4 motors (https://www.racedayquads.com/search?type=product&q=motors**).

Then you by the Lipo battery, compatible with the load demanded by all motors (https://www.racedayquads.com/search?type=product&q=motors**).

You also need…
