You Dont have to join a club or give us your personnel information. Just read, build your drone and learn

The intent here is to try different combinations with a standard drone. (Our 3d printed commercial drone) Plans available from EBAY by a Drone Engineer. So our Testing can be your testing, buy the plans, print your drone and follow along. Plans

This post is about motors, Although we are following the drone build, the plan is to change out the motors, try different setups, different batteries all for the purpose of learning drone tech by experiencing first hand with real world testing. OUR World, if the part fails it wont be hidded and the failure documented
