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).

QRC5 first FPV flight

I had the chance to fly a few batteries in FPV mode, and it's really great fun. The top speed and throttle response is very good, the inertia in tight turns is also not too high although the copter weighs around 400g.

Here's a short Dom HD capture:

The coming evenings, I'll try to get as much practice as possible to prepare for the FPV Airrace in Germany.
