Zoe the Zero – 7 – BOM

Zoe went to the kids’ playroom for a maiden flight.  I did no tuning, she just inherited Phoebe’s PID tuning values.  The result was one perfect flight, one flight with horizontal drift, and one flight with a crash and a clipped prop (an unexpected reaction by the ESCs to ctrl-C mid-flight, I think) – replacement props are already on their way (£5 a pair).  Clearly there’s some tuning to do.

But at the same time, she is working amazingly well for a set of untuned maiden flights, so here’s the Bill Of Materials which comes to around £270 plus the unpriced bits and bobs that all cost less than a pound each.
