DIY Drone Part II: Design Fundamentals and Parts List
Do you want to build your own drone? This multi-part video series will teach you the basics of designing and building your own quadcopter – from sketch to first flight.

Using some basic (and free) CAD software and a home-built 3D printer, you’ll see how easy it is to get involved with one of the fastest-growing hobbies/sports worldwide.

In part two I talk you through the components you’ll need, the fundamentals of drone design and making the blueprint for our 3D model.

00:44 – components you’ll need
01:55 – design principles
06:48 – design time!

Make sure to subscribe and follow along with every video and at the end you will have your very own drone, capable of flying at speeds of over 80km/h!!

Next time, I’ll be modelling the form of the frame and refining the positioning of the various mounting points!
