First Quadcopter (Arduino and Raspberry Pi)

Hello, I am a high school student who wants to make a Quadcopter using my Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pi. I plan on using the Arduino to do most of the real-time (stabilization) stuff, and the Pi for data processing (Logging data, remote control, video capture). I know I need some sort of gyroscome/accelorometer, and of course motors, but I have no idea how to do this, and am on the budget of a jobless freshman. I have some programming experience and a good community of peers (I am on FIRST Robotics Team 900). Any help would be appreciated.

  • I too am a high school student who wants to make a quad.

    My first idea was using the nano with a rpi.

    Now I'm thinking of using something like a parallel or odroid-u instead of the rpi.

    6dof imu (gyro and accel 3axis) - mpu6050 (cheap and its good, I bought one for 5 dollars off ebay)

    About the motors, I don't know. I'm probably going to get the a1510's, but I'm making a mini quad.
