Diatone Reptile 500 Drone
I’ve been working on this project for a little while now and finally added some things to this Diatone Reptile Frame. I really like this Multiwii 328p board. It’s versatile and so far it’s been reliable.
You’ll see in this video the Quadcopter is doing fairly well with hovering in the backyard. But, the Multiwii board can still use more tuning.
Aerial Photography is the main purpose of this Quad and I’ll be continuously improving the flight characteristics.
Future additions: 5.8 FPV, Ebay 2 axis Gimbal
