  1. I am not sure if there is a traditional sense of voltage regulators on quads, besides the BEC(Battery Elimination Circuit) . The ESC’s are controlled through a PWM signal. Which then handles the control and speed of the two phase motors. Which should be functioning similar to stepping motors, at a constant voltage for the phases, and cycled based and directional requirements.

  2. I was yelling at my monitor as if you could hear me when Norm made the mistake at the start… To bad you couldn’t hear me….

  3.   I’ve heard that it’s called YYZ because the opening guitar riff spells YYZ in morse code. I think that was a fun fact from the guitar hero load screen.

  4. YYZ is the airport code for Toronto. The airport broadcasted the code in Morse code so that’s where the rhythm of the song came from. They would be happy to see YYZ on their baggage because it meant they were coming home after a tour.

  5. Speaking brand names like Channel Lock, I’m surprised how many people don’t know that Molex is a brand and not really a style of connector…

  6. Please do put 90 degre camera from top and when you use sometihng digital instruction something give us on the description link sometin so we can follow to.

    Thank you for build.

  7. Hah, good build. Tho Will must be stressed or something cause he is being a bit hard on norm hah
