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!
