This is a robot, my ex-classmate, Zhi Ern Teoh and I built during his internship in my lab. It’s a classic quadrotor but with a distributed control strategy. It is running off an Arduino Mega but we found that the control loop was too slow. We’re in the midst of upgrading it to an Illuminata X Machina.
Zhi Ern is now a graduate student at Stanford pursuing Aerospace Engineering.
Our subsequent flight with better pilot confidence.
