Leviathan Rises – Heavy Lift Hexacopter

29 July 2011

I have been planning and sourcing the parts for a heavy lift hexacopter for some time now. Finally, it is becoming a reality. This hexacopter will be used exclusively for aerial photography and video. A high end camera mount is currently being developed by a friend that will soon be mounted to the Droidworx AD-6 Heavy Lift frame.

A list of parts being used:

Droidworx AD-6 Heavy Lift Frame
Openpilot Coptercontrol Flight Board
Cobra 2826-12 760kv Motors
APC 13×6.5 E Props
40A Exceed-RC Volcano Series ESCs
4 Cell Nano-Tech Lipos

    Any updates?

    • Yep, I got it flying. Need to resolder some things and do more PID tuning. Been very busy lately with non-hobby stuff.

    How much did it cost you all together? I’m in the process of building one myself. I’ve already ordered my Radio Transmitter DEVO 12S.
