Arducopter 3DR Hexa Frame


#1

I was just wondering if the arducopter hexacopter frame will be available again please. I want to run a training course using the ArduPilot and this looks like the ideal kit.


#2

This kit has been discontinued for now as its been replaced by the arducopter y6 frame.

But if you are after a hexacopter you might want to consider the F550 Hexacopter as its a very affordable :moneybag: and decent frame

Hope that helps

Thanks for your suggestion. The frame looks like a good substitute but I’m unsure whether it is compatible with the ArduPilot. If you could compile a list of parts that would work together I could probably use them.

The F550 is compatible with ardupilot, in fact ardupilot is compatible with just about any multicopter frame. You could use the same motors/ESC on the F550 as the old arducopter hexa frame and you can still use ardupilot to control it.

So what you would need in terms of motors/ESC/Props

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.
