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).

FPV Airrace!

We just returned from the awesome airrace in Bexbach. It was so much fun, we had intense battles, crashes and many broken propellers... I finished second in the "Pro" class, right after "Metaldanny" from the Netherlands. He was extremely fast, and had a very clean flight style.
After my QRC5 was knocked out the sky during an awesome battle for the first place in the qualifications, I was flying the finals with a TBS Gemini proto.

Big thank you to Rolf Venz who organized this great competition!

My QRC5 (left) in an absolutely awesome battle against Michael S. It ended in a midair collision.

Around 32 people from Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands were competing
