Default Converting the Draganflyer to Brushless Motors

The Draganflyer has been successfully converted from brushed motors to brushless motors. This conversion can be done for approximately $220. The advantages of the conversion are:

1) An increase of 2x to 3x payload capacity.
2) Longer flying time for a given payload.
3) No fragile DC motor wires to protect.
4) Smoother hovering
5) Higher power for more controlled descents with heavy payloads

Complete documentation of the conversion is available here:

Here is a video of the first test flight carrying a 21 oz payload:
