This project was started in , electronics and control loops. Because I always need a cool project to learn new things, it was clear that something that can fly had to be built.
The project started as a "tricopter-only" project, but as I wanted to build smaller vehicles with more payload capacity, I decided to make some quadrotor, hexacopter and Y6 hexacopter firmwares too. My main interest is to build very small MAVs that fly as good as larger ones (or even better) and that can be controlled by wireless video link. I also experimented with autonomous flight in GPS-denied areas (video), and with GPS assisted autonomous hover (video).

Matlab displays the attitude of the copter live and in 3D (and in colour ;-D !!)


  1. Hi, do you mind if I ask what libraries or reference materials you used to make this in MATLAB? I can get MATLAB to graph in real-time but I can't figure out how to get 3D models in it.

  2. Hi Jason,
    you can get "CAD2MATDEMO.M" at the central file exchange. That allows for reading .stl files in Matlab.
