AR.Drone – user upload (video summary)

This video has been uploaded to by user TilfeldigNerd. Here is a summary of the video in their own words:

Available from This video shows you how to assemble the lightweight AR.Drone modification kit, It takes about 10 minutes to assemble if you are quick, i struggled alot with one of the central cross collectors. but i got it connected after almost 1 min. Please leave me some feedback if you have questions. This mod has a place for your GO PRO HD Camera on top of the battery harness. Please feel free too leave feedback om your thoughts on my designs. The Original AR.Drone outdoor hull weighs 82 grams. This replacement hull weight only about 52grams. That is roughly a 50% weight reduction, now you can pilot your GO Pro HD camera anywhere and take exellent aerial photography. The Front camera is also tilted at a 30 degree downward angle. Hope you like it ! =)

    That is why the weight is reduced from the original 85 gram to only 40 gram with this modification kit ! The Weight reduction of 4 gram should helt carrying the case that weighs 60gram after what i have read onlin. And by my calculations lifting this should be no problem at all. I managed to lift a 240 gram old HD cam ontop of my drone, not really stable at all, but it worked ! So i dont think your sceptisism is very well founded.

    I hate to say it, my friend, but you might get the GoPro/drone flying okay naked, but not with the protection case… Try screwing a cased GoPro onto this and you won’t get very far. Sorry. I hope I’m wrong. But I think your design would work better with a simple way to velcro tape down the GoPro… A lot less safe for the expensive little camera, I know, but I just don’t see it flying properly any other way.
