Building a 280mm Quadcopter out of spare parts (Motors and ESCs)

While waiting for more spare parts to arrive (batteries, some adhesives, a PPM/PWM converter and some connector cables), it was the perfect time to install the motors and ESCs to the frame. If you have not read the first part of the build log, I used the EMAX Nighthawk 2204/2300kV motors and EMAX BLHeli 12A ESCs.

Eachine H8c Review

 Eachine H8c quadcopter review, courtesy of

The Eachine H8c is an affordable toy-grade quadcopter featuring a gyroscope stabilization system on 3-axis (6-axis as manufacturers like to advertise), that comes in a complete Ready-To-Fly (RTF) package. Inside the quadcopter canopy, there is an HD camera (with microphone) that is capable of video and picture recording (the camera can take pictures while recording video). The H8c is available on two colours, white and black, with the black version having a “mean” look while the white one is more suited for night flying. The review model was the black version.
