Hexacopter Bill of Materials

This is a list of each component I will be using to complete the build of my hexacopter over the coming weeks. I will be making custom circular polarized antennas for FPV with a GoPro HD Hero and 5.8gHz transmitter and receiver. As much as I would love to equip the board with an OpenPilot CC Board, they are all currently out of stock.

EDIT: GoodLuckBuy began selling the Crius Multiwii board, the board that I will now be using in place of an openpilot. It is less expensive and includes additional sensors that the OpenPilot CC does not include.
