We are happy to announce that our new range of muticopter brushless motors have now been added to our shop! To start we have 3 models. The MT2216 for 450 size quadcopters, MT3510 for medium weight quadcopters, and the MT3515 for heavy lift setups (these motors can produce over 2.8Kg of thrust with 15inch props!
Our 20A and 30A ESC use the BL heli firmware which is specially designed for use with multicopters. These ESC give you fast, and precise throttle response. This ESC comes pre-soldered with a Deans style battery connector and 3.5m bullet connectors so you can simply plus this ESC in to start using it!
If you need any help programming or setting up these ESC for your multicopter, please have a look at the BLheli programming manual, but if you have any other questions please let us know!
Just wanted to share a quick video I took testing out the Iris quadcopter and the FY-G3 gimbal. If anyone is interested they can find out more details of how I went about attaching it here, otherwise a short summary below :-)
I just made a quick mount for the longer arducopter legs, and a mount for the FY-G3 gimbal that uses the existing gopro 3 mount that comes with the Iris, so that it can be attached/removed without needed to do any modifications.
Our first batch of arducopter Iris quadcopters have just arrived! So all those in UK/Europe don't have to pay loads for shipping/customs to get their hands on one!
Please note that this batch is still the developer edition and is mainly aimed at those who have some multirotor experience. Great if you also want to provide some valuable input to the consumer version, But obviously if you have any questions please let us know and we will be happy to help!
Have a look at the info page for full details of the arducopter Iris
If you are looking for a really neat setup for your quadcopter, then you should have a look at our new 4in1 quadcopters ESC's. These combine 4 ESC with power distribution all into one small package. We are now selling 20A and 30A versions.
If you are confused about which system to get (Ardupilot Mega 2.5 or 2.6) you should read the post over at dronetrest - APM2.5 or APM2.6.
In summary, APM2.5 is best for Fixed Wing UAV's and APM2.6 is best for Multirotors!
We now have another version of our mini FPV combo. This one now includes a RPSMA connector so you can easily connect a propper antenna to this kit. Although the antenna adds extra weight and size to this mini kit, it will give you much better range and signal. However if you are after something that is super small, we are still selling a mini FPV combo with built in wire antenna
If you are never sure if your FPV transmitter is compatible with your receiver/monitor then you no longer need to shop around to find the correct frequencies. Our new range of FPV transmitters have been updated to allow them to operate on 32 channels (21 channels for the 25mW version). This makes them compatible with almost all 5,8Ghz FPV gear on the market including the fatshark headsets that we sell.
Other than the new multiband feature, the specs are the same as before, including the price!
We will also soon start selling 32 Channel receivers to update our current line.

If you think our recently released voltage regulator was too big, you should have a look at our new mini voltage regulator that weights just 2g, and is the same size as a SD card. Read more for specifications. Very tiny for an adjustable regulator that can handle up to 28V!
Our 3506Q Motor has been out of stock for quite some time now, and that is because we where working with the factory on an improved prop holder. Before these motors used the collet type which was not suitable for heavy loads and vibrations. The new adaptor bolts onto the motor for a much more sturdy and precise way to mount your props. Also the price of these motors are a couple pounds cheaper than the older ones!
We have recently released a new quadcopter frame that is specially designed for FPV use and comes with a built in GoPro Gimbal! This is a great quadcopter frame is you are looking for a quadcopter that is compact while still having a 2 axis gimbal.
