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).

Cameroon video in progress...

I had the opportunity to record 2hrs of FPV video during my holidays in Cameroon. It was great fun, and I am currently making a small movie out of it that will be posted soon. Here are a few stills already:

Everything was filmed with the GoPro HD and video-goggles (FPV) with my MM6 hexacopter:
