Step by step instructions to build a UAV?

Hi guys,

What would you recommend as the best source for instructions to build your own UAV? I took a look around diydrones but the Getting Started section doesn't offer much and the ArduCopter section seems to focus largely on software? Please direct me if I'm missing something. I Googled around and found one makedrones.com. Does anyone have any better suggestions?

Thanks a lot

  • Excellent guys! Thank you very much for your help!
  • If you are looking for multirotor - there are two award winning Instructables...

    Mark Harmon's Instructable

    My Instructable

    They have two different paths to building a quadrotor from raw materials.

    If you are looking for fixed wing...Gary's recommendation of Trent's site and FliteTest are excellent.

    Kevin have a look at Trents work http://www.mygeekshow.com/ its warts and all stuff, he has seen success and failure on the way and has not been afraid to document it.

    Flitetest http://www.flitetest.com/ is another great resource, they have tri and quad copter designs if that's what you are after.
