I have almost finished the rebuild of my Quadrocopter so I thought I would post it up here. All I am waiting for now is the motor mounts. I am very pleased with build as it will be a lot more maintainable than the original injected moulded plastic one as the carbon fibre rod is very replaceable. Its a bit of a dark photo but I like how stealthy and menacing it looks. I am very much considering ordering the Ardupilot and accessories for some added Arduino goodness.

Some awesome swarming quadrocopters
I am not usually that interested in the hobbyist modelling world but the attention to detail and the sheer scale of this project is immense. There are parts of the video that almost look like it is tilt shift photography rather than an automated model. The whole project took 7 years and was a bargain at $4.8 million. I love the fact that the people move around and the vehicles have functioning indicators. The beauty is in the detail.
