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).

Eight pages article on my trip to Cameroon: RC-Flight-Control Magazine 2011/2

RC-Flight-Control is the german magazine dedicated to first-person-view (FPV) radio controlled flight. In the latest issue (02/2011), there is an eight pages long article about my trip to cameroon. I included some background information about the challenges I was facing during the preparation of the journey and also during my stay in cameroon.

One of my aerial photographs also ended up on the cover of the magazine (you can actually see my girl friend and me enjoying the sun on the patio :-D ).

The magazine can be ordered online but it is also offered in many book stores at central railway stations.
