So it was Heritage day for us here in South Africa ...Heritage Day, 24 September, is a public holiday on which South Africans across the spectrum are encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions, in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all its people. ( WIKI )

For me a Change to build and puzzle ...












Who said ArduPilot can not work on IPAD .....Seems to be doing fine here ...


























Even If I had to say so myself .....I did a Neat job on the soldering ...just wish I had Alcohol to clean it afterwards ...

























I decided to make Rubber / Velcro Mouting for the Board..



















Preliminary mount ... GPS moved to Blue Arm on the right later ... Oh and I discover the Red an 4xblack cable is for Telemetry ...I Pluged my Xbee in there .... But this I have to change later due to the 868 Duty Cycle issues ... Read Here but for now It will do ...






























Here you can see the board in the air mounted on Velcro strips ...




























Motors Shaft was also Dremel-ed shorter (New word I made ...Dremeled ;) ) Much better fit for prop adapter ...



 












Turnigy Nano-Tech 3300mah battery I plan on Using with Quad ....







I did a lot of other stuff but want to post a reply I got from the DIY Drones Forum ...
