Hello!  My goals are to have a fully autonomous flying setup with streaming video. I have Paparazzi built and running on an Asus netbook and still designing out the video side (not sure if I will use NTSC broadcast then record or setup a separate 802.11N network and IP stream from webcam). One step before the other, so of course starting with the Quadcopter configuration. Feedback please!

I started the the following:
Bruzzlee configuration:
Castle Calculator:

Turnigy Talon Carbon ($34 + shipping, weight = 240g):

Lisa/M 2.0 + Asprin

uBlox LEA-5H

Scorpion 2215-900 V2 ($72/ea, 68.6g/ea):

XBee Pro 60mW ($40)

Left (counter clockwise) Carbon ($49x2) :
Right (clockwise) Carbon ($49x2):

Turnigy nano-tech 4400mah 2S 65-130C LiPo ($30)…looks like 5V regulator but depends on servos configuration

OrangeRX R100 ($12)

Electronic Speed Controllers (with SimonK firmware):
SimonK Info:

Camera Setup (TBD):

Battery Eliminator Circuit:
Castle Creations

Item Grams Qty Ea
Battery 278
Airframe 240
Motors 146.4 4 36.6
Propellers 44 4 11
GPS 2.1
RF Reciever 21
Camera Setup* 18
ESC 108 4 27
Total: 868.3

* This is minimum for just a static basic camera. This will increase a lot with 2-3 axis and servos

Transmitter: 7 or 8 channel compatible one of some sort
