So I started yesterday evening ... this seems fairly easy ...so far ...

Here you can see the difference in size between the 2009 Paparazzi and new Ardu Board. .Although the Paparazzi board is smaller all the sensors of the board is a pain ! Check the size of the GPS !Was thinking of using it with Ardu , but seeing the size Difference of the two GPS's , I think not !

All the parts , Obviously 4 Esc and 4 motors .... They even give you a cable for the USB ...ag no , got so many already ! :)Leg Assembly ... Notice LocTite for screws ..Added this Ruber/Sponge stuff on the motor mount area , hopefully will reduce VibrationsSprayed the Landing legs on the blue arm same colour ... well as close as what I could get out of a tin ...and yes I know ...GRAMS !

Taking Shape .... Arms loosely mounted to confirm a few things for me , How do you run the motor wires , where do they come out , where to mount the ESC's ... Also manual say solder bullet connectors , I don't think thats a good Idea , you still have to route that engine cable past the 2 frame center mounting and leg mounting screws , not that easy I think with bullet connectors on ...Well that's it for Today ...
