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).

Feinkost - music video shoot with Shrediquette MM6

About two weeks ago, Julian from the german band "Feinkost" wrote an email to me: Together with his band mates, they were giving some concerts in Cameroon. The tenant of the "Seemannsheim" in Douala (I know him from previous trips to Cameroon too) seems to like my Cameroon video very much, so he showed it to the band while they were staying there. They were also enthusiastic about the video and because they were planning to make a video for the new song "Wenn du wiederkommst", Julian decided to ask me for some aerial footage for the new video.

Because these sort of "jobs" always seem to be fun, I agreed, and together with Thomas Leidig (camera operator, director) we shot the video at two locations in and around Hamburg. The weather conditions were a bit challenging, the first day at the tidelands had a lot of wind (although hardly turbulent) and some rain. On the second day we were shooting in the city of Hamburg with some storm and a lot of turbulences between the city blocks.

But in the end we had at least some aerial footage that looked pretty good. The final music video is available at, and soon also on iTunes etc.:

The video shoot was great fun, the guys from Feinkost are really nice and they make some fine music!
