BUILD HOPPER

Included components

Everything you see below is contained in your Hopper drone case, along with a few spares.

Let's unzip the case and do an inventory! If you are getting ready to build, you may unwrap the parts as you do the inventory, if build is awhile away, just make sure you have everything and put them back in the case for safe keeping.

Upper Left

  • Body Panels - 5 shield parts that protect the PCB and provide a stylish look for Hopper




  • Propellers - 2 sets - Propellers are responsible for the lift and upward motion of the drone.




  • Bag of screws - there are extras




Lower Left

  • Propellers Guards - prop guards are positioned around a propeller to protect the blades

  • A Motors - 2 sets - building Hopper only requires one set, the other is spare

  • C Motors - 2 sets - building Hopper only requires one set, the other is spare



    Hopper has [4] motors that together they are responsible for rotating the props to provide lift.

  • Propeller Tool - used for removing propellers, and also helpful for removing batteries

  • Motor Tool - used for removing motors





Top Center

  • Safety Glasses

  • T-3 Screw Driver

  • Tweezers




Middle Center

  • Airframe - the main body of the drone and every other component attaches to it



  • Feet





Lower Center

  • PCB [Printer Circuit Board] - leave the PCB in is protective wrapper until time to install.



    The PCB is the brain of the drone and responsible for all controls. The PCB contains multiple sensors, connection ports, and a gimballed camera.



Inside of Lid

  • Battery Box - 1 charger, 1 USB cable, 3 batteries



  • Spare Propeller Guards
