Default AEROXCRAFT Quad-670


The AEROXCRAFTQUAD-670http://www.aeroxcraft.com/was designed primarily for use with the DJI Wookong M, the
Aeroxcraft Quad-670 has a dedicated place for all the major WKM components. Under the dome the controller plate has
places for the Main Controller,IMU, PMU and for your radio RX. On the rear of the frame is a place to mount your DJI
GPS/Compass unit, with the ability to fine tune it's direction.

Under the Quad, on the rear battery plate there is a mounting bracket for the DJI LED unit, which solves the problem of
seeing the unit while in flight. The motor mounts will take motors up to 35mm in diameter, including Axi 2814/22 and
Park480 1020kv. Since many multirotor pilots have their own favorite flightcontrol system, the Quad-670 will work just
fine with any other suitable multirotor controller.


The Quad-670 was designed to compliment the Aeroxcraft GoPro Gimbal. The GoPro Gimbal sits right out front allowing
your GoPro HD, and the new HD HERO 2, to take great video footage without getting the Quad-670 in shot. The flight batteries
are used to counter balance the weight of the camera allowing you to make sure the center of gravity is in the correct place.
There is a gimbal for compact cameras in development that will also be fully compatible with the Quad-670 multirotor.

Looks good but my only thought is why don't they have a lens cover for the GoPro mount. Lens covers are approx. $20.00 for 3 lens covers at Best Buy. Would save your camera lens if landing in tall grass or maybe a random hit in some tree braches.

Just an idea for a future upgrade.

Good point and I was planning on adding a GoPro lens cover, myself. Just offhand, since the GoPro camera gimbal comes
unassembled, I think that AeroXcraft decided to keep the cost reasonable and suggest the lens cover as an option.
