Building a Quadcopter p.2 - Parts. Parts list: https://pythonprogramming.net/quadcopter-parts-tutorial/
Hello and welcome to the second tutorial covering how to build a quadcopter. We're going to be covering the supplies that you will need.
All quadcopters break down to the following (I will link to specific parts further down, do not want to clutter things at this point):
Frame - This is what everything attaches to.
Motors - Things that spin
ESC - Electronic Speed Controllers, which dictate the speed at which your motors spin.
Propellers - Attaches to motor to be spun and generate down-force
Receiver (and transmitter) - Usually these come together. The transmitter is your "remote controller" and the receiver is what sits on the quadcopter to accept the incoming signal.
Flight Control Board - Receives signal from your receiver, which then feeds out to your ESCs. Most flight control boards also have some basic stability control that helps to keep your quadcopter balanced.
LiPo (Lithium Polymer) Battery - powers your quadcopter! Somewhere in the range of 1.3 - 2.2 amps.
Power distribution Board - Takes power in from your battery, powers the ESCs which then power your motors, and also powers the flight control board.
