Hi, I'm currently in to a little project of making small quad's from foam. Currently I have made a basic X (30 cm) frame. This version is just to test the hardware (15g inrunner motors,3 inch props, ...). The first goal is to make it much smaller and add prop protection for indoor use. After that I would like to add features such as altitude holt with sonar/ir and a wifi/bluetooth reciever to control the quad by pc/tab/smartphone.
Project status, images, videos,... see the blog: http://foamcopter.blogspot.be/
1) first test flight indoor with i86L board: difficult to fly, unable to find good pid's
2) second test flight outdoor with nanowii board: flying much better even with std pid's
3) currently changing frame, to be continued...
