Post Additional Hardware Reqs. for Espresso Kit
Thanks for the great project!

I was wondering about the Hardware requirements for the Espresso Kit if I want to turn it into a UAV.
Is there a GPS module on the Espresso already?
please complete my list :-)
Thanks a lot!

  • R/C Radio & Receiver
  • ZigBee Receiver (one or two?)
  • ???

Greets, K

You will need your own Spektrum-compatible 2.4GHz R/C transmitter and receivers as well as 3-cell lithium polymer battery. XBees are included, no GPS.

Thank you Chris.

So on the ground station I'd need zigbee radios there (one or two? since it says two zigbees on the quadshot...?),
plus a GPS for the quadshot.
Would that be it?

Cheers, K

Hi Kaplan,

Two zigbees means one for the quadshot and one for the ground. It is coming with both.

Cheers Esden
