After a lot of reading and investigating, finally, I started the building process of two experimental Quadrocopters or more exactly, two aerial video platforms. This project will be based on two German designs; the first one is the Quadrocopter, an open source development that can be reviewed at the following link:
Both projects will utilize three gyros, one compass sensor, one pressure sensor, one three-axis accelerometer and four brushless engines. The Mikrokopter will use proprietary Brushless controllers developed by Holger one of the main developers of the Mikrokopter. As for the frame, Iíve tried to buy one of the German alu frames but it has been almost impossible to contact the seller so I decided build my own frame, which is based on Hammers design. It already passed the CAD design stage and was sent to the laser cutting shop so next week Iíll post a picture of the final product.
As for now Iíve been training with my DraganFlyier. Here are some videos.
