OPEN LAB (ground floor) is ALL Projects of any scale. We will break into small groups and anyone interested in doing their own thing or would like to create their own conversation group, feel free to do so. We will have space for the NAO developers and the Quadrotor builders, as well as access to soldering irons, tools, drill press, rapid prototyping machines, etc. Bring your laptop; there's Wi-Fi!

QUADCOPTER (3rd Floor) will be a continuation of Quadcopter planning and building that will be led by John and Simon.

We will be answering all sorts of questions and sharing advice on how to build and the best resources to get parts from all over the web and in stores locally. We will have a small group meeting at least once or twice a month dedicated to building nearly all small aircraft, including blimps and jets!

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

We are really excited about the explosive growth of our club recently! Due to the overwhelming popularity and limited space, we are now limiting RSVPs to 80 until further notice. Please consider this when you RSVP, and make sure you add the number of guests in your party. In addition, if your plans change, please update your RSVP here on Meetup to allow others to take your space.

    For connecting the LIPO batteries to Quad system power, instead of cutting the bullet connectors and replacing with an XT-60 connector, what about just getting a bullet to XT60 adapter?

      Mostly to see what people are doing and what materials they are using. I want to start a project of my own but I need some inspiration

    Does anyone have a link to the wiring hookup for the DJI F450 between the Quadrino EZ-Connect wiring harness and the ESC? Trying to figure out the orientation of the tabs for the signal to pass through. Thanks!

      Sorry about your finger. I think the board is OK, I downloaded the MultiWii config software ( http://www.multiwii.c...­ ) and hooked it up and board seems to be working OK because I can see the virtual heli moving around in 3d as I move the board around., RX wiring was all wrong but the Quadrino guy happened to be using the same setup as me (Turnigy 9x) so he sent me a picture of his wiring. As for the wiring, the most relevant link I found on the site was this: http://www.flyingeins...­ - I think that is the same as what I have, so connectors with a single wire I now know how to set up, but I think the A tab has multiple wires...

      OK, looked at the harness last night, think I got it figured out - the A tab has brown, red and black so obviously 2 are for power, and the brown is for signal so it would be brown to orange on this connection.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
