For those who want to reproduce what we did with the Minimum Blimp
, the schematic is above. The Arduino code is here
We're now moving on the Minimum Blimp Version 2, which will be based on a custom PCB. Rather than use the flimsy and expensive BlubberBot kit as the starting point, we're probably going to mod a $15 RC toy blimp
. We just rip out the RC unit, put in our Arduino processor board and sensors, and presto, instant UAV! And under $100...
