From the this-guy-is-way-smarter-than-me department, Eirik Solheim finally found a good use for his Apple Watch: he turned the packaging into a drone that can actually fly.
The video below is a quick overview of building the “Apple Watch Copter,” and it’s quite impressive.
Solheim shared more details of the electronics involved on his website.
Motors: SunnySky 2212-13 980KV II
ESC: Afro 30A SimonK
Flight Controller (FC): In the video it was a Naze 32, after I added the camera I changed to The BrainFPV because of the nice OSD that is built in.
Propellers: 9 inch
Battery: 4S 2650 mAh
Stick length: 330 mm
Doesn’t seem like he’s a fan of Apple judging by his comments on the Apple Watch, but we sure are fans of Solheim.
