Be part of the exciting new world of open source Ardupilot Multirotor UAVs, fully supported by DIYdrones community. This is jDrones first complete solution for anyone who wants a ready to fly ArduCopter Hexa.

Fully assembled ArduCopter Hexa v1.0, in folded form
Weight: 1.6 Kg
Payload Capacity: at least 1 - 1.5kg (higher payloads just shortens flight time)

Built this earlier on this year, flies well but do not have the time to add a camera mount for a dSLR so upgrading to a octocopter ready built.

So many extras, spares and parts you'll be jumping with joy!

Comes with 3DR Radio telemetry system so you will always know the location of your uav and can control it's flight from your laptop (though should always use your RC as per CAA rules). Amazing mission planner downloadable from diy drones. Allows for instant updating of drone firmware. Open source so weekly updates improve the base station and drone software.

Spektrum DX8 tx/rx with flight simulator and lead. Simulator has a uav ready to download once you have installed the software on your computer. Master uav flight in a simulator before flying!

2 x hyperion 5000mAh 3S batteries, 1 x 4S Hyperion battery (unused) and Hyperion balance charger (thats $500 there!)

I've flown this rig for around 8 hours solid, with around another 4 hours of testing and calibrating. 1 heavy landing cracked the flimsy legs that came with the kit so launched by hand after that.

Spares include numerous propellers, engine mounts I had laser cut. Fiberglass extensions with ping pong balls to protect motors and lots more. Will include the case that keeps all the spares too.
Would recommend upgrading to a carbon frame if you are really serious. Will advise on best solution for that in discussion with buyer.
Start is reserve. No buy now, please do not ask, this is going at considerably less than what it is worth. Will not split the kit up. Regularly visit Christchurch so can drop off anywhere in between.
