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).

Time for some statistics...:

Although the word "Shrediquette" seems to cause some confusion, still some people found their way to this blog. Here is a bunch of google search word logs:

Thanks to all the visitors, I made a quick video for all of you (don't try this at home...):


  1. That was really cool. i hope the project is going nicely i am working on building my own. In the proses of getting the supplies together

  2. Hi,

    KNAX-Club-Luftballoons :D Super Sache!!!

    Nice slow motion. But with the title of this video i thought there is a crash. What damage did your Shrediquette take?

    I'm still building my DLXm. Next week I will mill my carbon parts.

    Greeting from Nienburg/Weser ;)
