The Northern Hemisphere is slowly starting to enjoy the spring and this is best time to start building a radio-controlled copter. During the last couple of years the multicopters have become pretty popular because of reasonable cost and relative ease of flying. What could be finer than to bring the camcorder into the sky and see the neighborhood from a whole new perspective?!

Let us start with couple of videos to bring up the appetite. The first one is done by me and I believe that this flight was the fifth one I've ever done. This gives you some idea how fast it is to learn to fly these things. The second clip is here to show you what kind of acrobatics one can expect to get after few years of practice.

DIY MultiCopter - Part 1. - How to build yourself a multicopter!

This article is intended to act as the first part of a series of articles that handles the topic of multihelicopter building. There are pre-assembled solutions for those who want to get it all done easily but in the spirit of, of course, we are building our own, hopefully even a couple of different ones. This part includes topics related to terminology and knowledge of what the first time multicopter builder needs to know. Parts are not insanely expensive to buy, but a good preparation saves both money and time.

Article's product examples are strongly based on Hobby King's online store selections. In my experience this is the best place where you can find all the necessary components for your build. At a later stage, when you have more knowledge and can compare the products more closely, you can make purchases through Ebay and other online services, but HK is generally "the best and safe choice" for all kinds of RC needs.
