OB-6 Hexacopter DIY KIT Edition
Special order, Usually ships in 5 business days
This is for the DIYers out there, You can get the Exclusive Observer-6 from Canada Drones and Kildir technologies for a fraction of the full price.
Because this is the way I started in this hobby and business I want to return the favor to the community by offering the OB-6 as a build yourself kit.
You get it at a discount price for a limited time!
We did some prep work for you so the ESCs are in place and the wiring harness is all done.
This is not a beginner's kit! You need to solder wires and be good at following assembly instructions (this is just the beginning...)
Then you need to familiarize yourself with the 3DR APM 2.6+ and 3DR Telemety. We give you the parameters that works best for us, but this still requires skills.
Last thing will be to complete the Taranis model creation (based on a model file that we provide) and bind, test, calibrate ESC, test, check motor rotation and order, perform a preflight check, do more fine tuning and calibration and even the auto trim procedure.
Again I need you to realise this is not the 100% tested and ready to fly version. This is a Do It Yourself kit.
What do you get?
1 x OB-6 Frame and required hardware (with folding legs)
1 x Taranis PLUS Radio Controller with Receiver and required cables
6 x 3515 EMAX motors
2 x 4in1 ESC (pre-assembled and mounted to body plate)
1 x Wirering harness (pre-assembled for you)
6 x 15 inches foldable propellers and mounting hardware
1 x Battery Charger and Balance board (XT60)
2 x 5100 mAh 4S Kypom Lipo
1 x Large LiPo Bag (no in picture)
1 x LiPo Alarm / Voltage display
1 x 3DR APM 2.6+ with GPS and external compass
1 x GPS mast
1 x 3DR 900mHz Telemetry kit
What else do you need?
10 to 15 hours to put it all together, configure, test and tweak it.

Flight path from an APM 2.6 with Mission planner. Shown in cloud point based on picture taken and GPS coordinate.
Resulting model exported from PIX4D (all above image stitched together and 3D model extracted) Very impressive!
Produce super precise maps that can be used to measure the ground with elevation (this is the magic again of Pix4D software, but it took the images taken with the OB-6 without any pre-processing done)
Shown with APM 2.6, Telemetry 900mhz, Frsky Receiver, GPS/Compass on Foldable mast
No mess of wires, ESCs are located under the main plate and are still easy to access.
Look I am flying! (2 x 5100mAh are used here to get 16 minutes of flight with a Sony camera and Brushless gimbal)
Naked Shot... you do have a nice frame! (you can see vibration isolation motor mount, if you do cut the vibration at the source you have a lot less to deal with later on)
These are the foldable props, they make transportation so much easier that they are now included in the kits!
