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).

LandKamp!

Only one week to go for this years LandKamp! Anyone that is interested in copters should really visit this nice meeting. Last year it was a lot of fun with many friendly and interesting people.

This is what I'll take with me this year (actually all copters I have :-D):

This year’s “Landkamp 2.11” takes place from the 2nd of June to 5th of June 2011 at the sports ground which is located next to the soccerclub in Ostheim/Rhön. “Landkamp” is a privately organised event. There will be many “Kopter” fans from all over Germany. “Landkamp” is one of the longest multi-kopter conventions in Germany due to four days of camping, crafting, flying, challenges and lot of nice talks with like-minded people.
