With Microsoft as a sponsor of the DaVinci Challenge, I usually start by encouraging installing Mission Planner or APM Planner 2.0 on Windows, despite the difficult of installing unsigned drivers on Windows 8. For those participants with a MAC, guidance is to install APM Planner 2.0. Inevitably,…Continue

This is a very compact and robust quad designed and built by me and another Chinese student that will fit snugly in a large pocket. Hasn't flown yet since the motors are still shipping, but it feels very sturdy and should be rigid enough to stay stable at high throttle, and don't worry about the joints, they'll be fastened with aluminum screws and bolts. The quad is designed to house a pixhawk with cover removed(there will be a protective roof) and carry a mobius or an HD19…Continue
