My daughters and I have built several quadrotors out of aluminum and also a mini quad out of kite parts (see beatty-robotics.com for these). But for this next project, we decided to make a quadrotor out of carbon fiber. We applied everything we learned on our previous builds and also tried a few new ideas that we hadn't tried before. …Continue
