Hi, nie project, wich motors/props do you mount? You think it can fit in a apm 2.x?

The motors I used are NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv. But I recommend something with better quality if you can find. The motors I used generate way too much vibration, even after I tried to calibrate the motors, and the props.
I have no idea what motors are needed for apm 2

Very cool! I'd love to see more pics of the inside!

Hi loganj13, I uploaded new pictures.
The power distribution is basically 2 copper washers (because solder sticks very well on copper), and then wrapped everything with electrical tape.
Currently I don't have a battery that fits between the legs (the battery I have is too big), I just placed an order for 2 new batteries, when I get them, I will post a picture with the battery attached, and maybe even a video with the quad in flight :)
I plan to use sticky velcro on the quad and also on the battery, and also use velcro around the quad to hold the battery. (see image)
The rest is pretty simple, but let me know if you need anything else.

Great thanks!
