From Quadcopter

The aim is to build a 4 rotor helicopter with a autopilot system that we will write.

The Quadcopter will contain a few custom built components eg. computer controlled speed controllers, electronic compass, accelerometers, gyros, GPS, GSM module for long distance controlling over the cellular network and a wifi module for the closer range controlling.

It will also carry a long range camera so we can navigate or just look while the auto pilot is flying....


  • Full autonomous flight and landing.
  • Controlled via PC or RC controller.
  • 6 Degree of Freedom IMU.
  • Video downlink.
  • Open source development.
