Today, we’re just working on some far out projects. One thing we’ve wanted to work on for a long time is a quadrotor. Naturally, we made some mistakes, and were only able to get two rotors working. But here’s a video of the first test-flight.
I consider this a success: the rig actually lifted halfway off the ground, with only two motors. Because it’s made of LEGO parts, it is pretty heavy. But for a test rig, it worked really well.
The motors are controlled with an Arduino, which control the four different Electronic Speed Controls.
