Awesome project. My theory that you were building a lunar lander is now wrong.

Dude, as long as you're willing to iterate I'm not ruling it out.

I'm interested. Let's meet up on this in the new year. Let me know what works for you.

I picked up on this project a bit. I printed out the legs and all of the engine mounts. I will print other parts as I have time. I started looking at pricing for the electronics. It looks like about $200 worth of gear. That is without the radio or receiver RC gear.

Most of it we could get on Amazon, maybe we can find a less expensive source.

Motor and ESC $22 x 4

Blades $4 X 2

If we got this stuff does anyone have the RC equipment we can borrow to try it out. The instructions online say others have used:

Radio: Turnigy 9x with FrSky module (er9x firmware with telemetry)
Receiver: FrSky D8R-II (firmware with ppmsum out)

Anyone have a GoPro we can test in this?

It looks like the RC transmitter and receiver is about $60. That is much less expensive than I would have thought. Can someone who knows more about RC stuff take a look and see if this cheap one would work?

A GoPro Hero3 is $200. It seems we might be able to find a replacement or borrow one.

So this would put the project cost at about $260.
