Bill Of Materials

Raspberry Fly

A Raspberry Pi based autonomous aerial drone

Bill of materials

This is the bill of materials for the Raspberry Fly:


  • DJI F450 Flame Wheel ARF kit (including motors and ESCs)
  • AltIMU-10 v3 (flight instruments)
  • Raspberry Pi Model B (with rasbian wheezy)
  • Landing gear
  • USB wifi adapter
  • Adafruit 16-channel 12 bit PWM driver
  • LM2596 step-down switching regulator (might want a higher quality one)
  • Corsair CX750M power supply for testing


When I begin advanced outdoor testing I will of course need a LiPo battery and a charger.


The tools I have used are:


  • Screwdrivers, pliers etc.
  • Soldering iron
  • Voltmeter
  • Rigol DS1052E oscilloscope


The oscilloscope is not necessary, but it did save me a lot of time during PWM debugging.

Drones are fun but can be dangerous. Use any information on these pages at your own risk
