my response is not related to your power supply, however, are you sure you want to drive the quadcopter with an 8bit CPU?
I suppose you will want to use an accelerometer, a gyroscope, probably even more sensors...
Thank you guys! I found it and it's a $10.00-ish part titled "xt60 to DC jack" -- It takes 2 months to arrive though and I'm sad.
I have no clue how I missed it too and I've been looking for so long
That looks cool! I have no idea really what the difference would be from an Arduino, but I look forward to building a more powerful quadcopter. Right now, that guide looks way above my head. I do plan on making several quadcopters though. Possibly, a FLEET OF THEM!!
I'm trying to build a quadcopter and got stuck on schematics. I don't know how to bring power to the Arduino.
Right now I have a battery that has a red and black cord soldered to an F450 frame. That's it with power. I don't know how I'd bring power to the F450 frame and Arduino. I don't see anything online for a XT60 to DC input, and I don't know what the Wire Harness Box is or what the lines connecting them to the brushless motors means. I'm guessing I don't need a wire harness box if I have the black and red soldered to the F450 frame already that the brushless motors respond to, and if so then I just need to figure out what the XT60 female to DC is.
Thank you for your help and expertise!
