So I managed to procure another set of ESC’s, soldered them up, and finished the power harness. I still want to build some landing gear and move the battery to the bottom, but for now it will do.

Thanks Robbie for shooting the video!
More detailed pics and information on the build process to come.
I went to the World Maker Faire this weekend in NYC. It was really nice to see the Arduino team in person and see all the cool things they have planned. I’m really looking forward to seeing more details on the new Tinkerkit and getting to play with the new Uno and Mega.
