Five-Rotor Flying Drone – Pentacopter – Quadcopter’s Cousin 1


Five-Rotor Flying Drone – Pentacopter

Are you bored of Quadcopters? Here it comes a 5-rotor Flying Drone – Pentacopter.

This amazing multicopter variations is built by [Yasuo840]. ThePentacopter is equiped with a camera , and it uses a KK2.0 v1.5 flight controller and five motors.

The frame seems to be a H550 Hexcopter. He only uses five of the six arms and places the camera in the front where one arms would normally be.

Advantage of this Pentacopter

The unused arm place is perfect for the camera because the props can stay out of the view. He balances the weight of the camera with the rear arm. He is using these steering arm mount sets to allow his rear motor to be angled with a servo. There doesn’t seem to be a build log, so it could be a bit tricky to set up. [Yasuo840]′s copters always appear to be perfectly tuned and balanced, which is amazing for hobbyist projects.
