Project Overview

Since I bought my 1st cheap toy quadcopter I haven’t been able to stop tinkering and flying. Then I discovered FPV (1st person view) flight which has turned this from a hobby into an obsession.

I wanted to create this project so others can have a central place to learn and share information about building, flying, and hacking Quadcopters and ground vehicles.

NEW UPDATE :
Did a little overview for 4 micro drone builds I did recently to test out components:

Here are some commentary on the results of the builds, I’ll have the 4th one coming up soon:
Best Indoor ONLY ==>

Short Term Goals

Finished building 5 micro quads to test various components to recommend to you guys for builds. Next I’ll be putting together some guides on building and each of the component parts.

  • Doing modification on FPV Goggles to give my headset recording capability from the live feed of the flight
    |
  • Conversion of H8 mini’s motors to the much larger 8.5mm x 20mm brushed motors and testing
    |
  • Full Brushed and Brushless Quadcopter builds
    |
  • Designing an ultra light weight antenna protector for an existing built quad and the new one.
    |
  • Designing a new quadcopter micro frame or modifying a current frame from Thingiverse
    |
  • Designing a FPV camera/transmitter mounting systems for a new micro quad and ground vehicle.
    |
  • Hacking a H8 mini flight controller board
    |
  • Converting a Devo 7E transmitter with into a universal radio for drones and RC vehicles with nrf24l01+pa+lna modules and custom firmware.

Teammates & Contributors

This project is a type of person learning journal used to share information with others. But I welcome anyone to join the project and build your own micro drones with me, make suggestions, work on new frame and mounting designs, help hack micro controllers, etc…

I know I know, you’re thinking about it… Just do it… Click the join project button up top… you know you want to… it’s calling your name, it’s saying “Please, Click Me”…

(But seriously, if you’re into drones/quadcopters join the project, the more members I see the more motivation it gives me to do all these hacks and edit hours of video footage to create a bunch of awesome tutorial videos on weekends, if you want to see content faster and help me keep up the pace, join! )
