Having the GoPro cameras has led us to open up our imaginations about how to use them. We’ve had one suspended from a kite (more to follow) but I’ve been pondering building a Quad Copter to fly a camera around for a while. The ready made solutions seem a lot of money for what they are and it’s always good to have a project 🙂

When I started looking into what was required there was the usual very steep learning curve. All the new terms and concepts to grasp coupled with people keen to sell you things without telling you the details meant it has taken me a while to bite the bullet and start assembling the parts I’ll need.

I’ll try and document what I do to try and help others and remind myself of what not to do next time. It’ll probably also help when reconstructing from the inevitable crashes!
