With all the talk about Amazon.com using drones to deliver their packages, we thought you would enjoy watching our team embark on building our own drone.  No, we won’t be using it to deliver your SOLIDWORKS media kits, instead we will be using it to record aerial videos.


We will call this project the CADcopter. If any of you have experience with building one of these, we welcome your input.  If you are unfamiliar with what a drone (or Quadcopter) is, check out some of these videos.

Here is a great video on autonomous Quadcopters.

And here is just some cool aerial footage filmed with an off the shelf kit.

Professor Kumar and his students sure push the envelope with what these Quadcopters can do.  Our build is going to be much simpler, but you never know what the future may hold!

Stay tuned for updates!
