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).

Circuit and PCB layout released!

Today I can release the circuit and the PCB.  My little tricopter project seems to be fully documented now, it was a success and lots of fun. And now for something new.... I want to become snowboard pro ;-D.
I will most likely post a video of the outdoor performance of the tricopter soon.

This is the layout:
(thanks to "AVR-Frickler" for tweaking the layout!)

And here comes the circuit:
