How to make a quadcopter?
« on: September 27, 2007, 02:37:34 PM »
I have been looking around at different robot pages and found quadcopters to be really interesting. But I am having a hard time finding any useful information on how they work and how to make one.

Does anyone have a link to something I could look at?

Im not planning to build one (might be a bit out of my league :P) but would like to know how they are made.

Thanks

You will find a lot of discussion about quads here -

Also, see
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadrotor
        http://www.uavp.de/index.php?lang=en

This should be enough to get you started.  By the way, it's not a quad, but here is something I am working on ...
