I designed FreeIMU for human-computer interaction.. but hey.. a good tool may be used in many different applications. So, it turned out that FreeIMU is actually a pretty good sensor board for using in flying machines, especially on multicopters applications.
Just one year ago, I wasn't experienced at all in all the quadcopter/multicopter stuff but as soon as I published FreeIMU, people from that world got in contact with me.. I think I now have quite some friends from the quadcopter world..
Well, it finally happened that I've been more and more interested in multicopter till almost being passionate about them even if I never flyed one of them..
But then, I went to the flying field with johnxp and I've seen and tried flying one of them.. well.. what can I say? That's awesome!
So, here I am.. two days ago, with the help of johnxp, I bought all the stuff to build my very first quad as well as the radio, battery chargers and miscellaneous stuff.
So, here is what will be my setup:
What do you expert quadcopters pilots think about it?
