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).

Some changes...: I got new motors (Scorpion s2212-26) and new gyro's (ADXRS610). The ESC's were modified for fully digital I2C control. Additionally, I rewrote most of the control loop (finally, I understood what I actually have to control to make stable flights possible). This movie demonstrates two different control modes (control of the angle vs. control of angular velocity).
