Building Quadcopter Part 5

Photo 1 Controller and GPS Mounted on quadcopter

Photo 2

The electronics need to be mounted on the quadcopter and there is no easy way to do it.  Therefore, I combined some old model skills with some new model skills to come up with the mounting arrangement shown in photos 1 and 2.

I used a scrap piece of 1/8" aircraft plywood to make a mounting base, used some wood dowels to make standoffs, and mounted the controller and GPS unit.  The GPS/Compass is mounted away from the controller to limit interference.

Let's see how well this works.
