Create an Arduino Powered Quadcopter

Create an Arduino Powered Quadcopter

Curious about how quadcopters work? Sick of regularly breaking cheap quadcopters? With this project from instructables member treyes4 you will learn how to build an Arduino powered quadcopter flight controller. However, this isn’t just any old quadcopter! With features such as position lock and altitude hold, this might even be an upgrade to the old quadcopters you have lying around at home. The flight controller uses a number of sensors such as a GPS, altitude sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer to provide the information necessary to implement these features. If this sounds like a project that interests you, check out the following link to get started!


The video below demonstrates the quadcopter in action:

A gyroscope and accelerometer are an integral aspect of this project.
