My Arduino compatible SAMD21G board, the SAM 15x15, can be built into small drones. To demonstrate this, I made some photos of the Cheerson CX-10WD mini drone together with the SAM 15x15 board. I was wondering which electronic parts are used inside the drone, therefore I got it apart and made a part list. Some SMD parts were not readable; please mail me if you know more.
Note that there are two separate antennas, one for the RC control and one for the IP camera.
