Quad copter class status

By on Jan. 23, 2012 Comments
I've gotten all the parts in as of today (well the last ones should be delivered today, a higher capacity battery and an assortment of propeller sizes) so I need to finish up the frame design so we can print one out for flight testing.

This week I will be going ahead and burning the firmware on the controller board, and prepping all the electronics (the esc's and motors) and doing some static tests to make sure everything is working.

Then mounting the components on the frame and doing some flight testing.

Once I'm satisfied with the design I will be posting a BOM in preparation for the build classes.

This Thursday I will be reviewing the design and our goals for the quad copter, including some really nice software I've found that we might be able to use for some of our auto-pilot and ground control.
