Mini Quad Upgrade

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Today, Julajay and I upgraded our little mini quad rotor flying drone that we call “The Black Hornet.”

We replaced his main board, installed new propellers, re-fixtured his motor mounts, and got him in good flying shape. He flew steady and strong in our test flights.

    Hi. Can you please let me know what is the name of the green pad where the girl is soldering on? I would like to buy one but I cannot seem to find where to buy it online.
