Let's Make Robots!


It flies, it flies!!

I posted some time ago that some friends and I were building a Semi-Autonomous Quad-rotor helicopter for our Masters' Project at uni. Well, we've been working hard, and have finally built the actual helicopter (using a kit found at http://www.mikrokopter.de ). After most people had left uni last night, we found a large open space to do some simple test flights. I would say that the flights were a partial success, in that we now have to calibrate all the controls and work out exactly what each control is doing (I crashed the helicopter on its second flight!)
