A couple of weeks ago KBS sent a crew from their "World Today" news show to the US to report on the current state of civilian drone technology. Andreas and I demoed both fixed wing and multirotor craft, and took them for an FPV ride. They also talked to 3DRobotics and the ever-awesome Roswell Flight Test Crew. Lawyers, Protesters, Law Enforcement and Activists are also featured, blessing the Korean population with their views on the current state of American dronism.
The broadcast is of course in Korean. This clip from "World Today" is used by permission of KBS.
The videography was really good. Here's some shots from the EastBay segment.

The grub screw uses a 1.25mm hex wrench. It would be nice if RC Timer included one. They don't, so be sure and have one ready.
Note that we were doing the power wrong! Don't use a 5V servo connection, use a 2S-4S battery. Be sure and watch the polarity. It may not be a bad idea to put a battery connector onto the board.
Just for fun, I made a time lapse of the construction.
To be continued... configuration, software, and tuning
