Ok, so here’s a break-down of what aspects there are to this project, as well as a (preliminary) component list.
Of course, the main aspect of this project is programming: I need to turn the arduino into a fully functional flight controller. I’ll do a separate break-down on the code aspect of things.
So, the first part is going to be to design and 3D-print a physical frame for the drone. The reason that I’m going to 3D-print it is that I know from experience that it works very well for drones, being light and strong, and I have experience in CAD design and the manufacturing process for 3D-printing.(continued)
