APM Octocopter Build First Test Flight

This is the first test flight of our 1020-mm Octocopter build. It flew for 21 minutes on a charge. The batteries (2 x 5200 mAh 6S) are brand new, so maybe flight time will increase a little after the batteries are broken in a little.

Total weight (including batteries, but no camera/gimbal payload yet) is 5.0 kg.

Frame: Tarot T15
Flight Control: APM 2.6 with ArduCopter V3.2-rc14
