Probably this question could be answered by the assembly guide Eric and David are putting together, but I was wondering how you guys are distributing the power coming from the batteries to the motors and board.
Just soldering together some wires?
I was thinking the power distribution board of the arducopter is pretty sleek: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2PowerDistro
It basically takes the power from the batteries, and then distributes it to the 4 motors (we only have 3, but doesn’t change that much). And also sends current to the board. Also has wirings for sending the PWM signals to the ESCs, and connecting it to the pins of the arduino.
We might use that directly, or slightly cusomize it for our specific needs.
What do you think?
