Hackster Hardware Meetup Seattle Message Board › Arduino Projects

Arduino Projects

What is everyone working on? Are there any quad, hex, octocopters being developed in the group? I just started a Quadcopter myself using the Arduino UNO as the flight controller. Does anyone know of local hobby shops for parts? I've been to Metrix CreateSpace which is great for electronics but I'm having a hard time finding propellor motors and other flight parts.

There are definitely some people developing quad copters that have come to the meetup before and I can connect you if you like. Vetco is probably the best place in town to buy arduino parts - they have the best selection and the best prices. They're on Bel Red road on the East Side and they're a meetup sponsor, so mention that you're a member and you'll get a 10% discount.

vetco is ok for base electrical components, but if you’re looking for props, brushless motors, brushless ESC's, and general RC hobby bits try http://galaxyhobby.co...­ in Lynnwood. I haven’t found a closer full service RC hobby shop near Seattle. Otherwise http://www.bphobbies....­ and some have said http://www.hobbyking....­ both will have copter parts at a decent price but web only. I personally like bp, haven’t had a reason to try hobby king yet. And of course, http://www.all-batter...­ is the bomb for good prices on all sorts of battery/packs.
