    This is gross, that is a dead cat really?

    We should not be horrified when the Predator collects human skulls, we are worse than predator at times.

    Hi trackwhack.

    first of all, sorry for the late bump. My first post here.
    I'm a 10th standard guy from DAV Hyderabad.
    I am an avid fan of radio-contolled vehicles, especially multi-rotors. I've just finished building my two quadcopters. (and only one flew!) I'm on rcgroups.com too.
    BTW, which flight controller are you using? Is it arduino-based? What's the firmware loaded onto it? I'm using arduino-based MultiWii controller and I just love it.
    and, your quad looks like a piece of precision....unlike mine that's one hell is a garbage! :lol:
    I did consider carbon fibre but bought Aluminium beams, they're cheaper!
    Here's mine!!!

    And how on earth have I missed this thread?

    All the best Track.

    I read the first page about you wanting to censor your face. Come on, I am sure you don't look that bad :troll:

    Hi Venkat,

    I'm sorry, I don't have a video... I always wanted to brag with a video, but never got a chance to shoot it.
    Thanks for the compliment,

    Vineet

    This is what I am trying to accomplish eventually. However, instead of radio controlled, my plan is to have it GPS controlled. I want to be able to program a fixed path that the quad can follow while dusting crops, complete the task and come back.

    Vineet that is fantastic. Please continue to build stuff.

    I used a generic copy of the KKmulticopter board that uses an Atmega processor. Its not the best decision I made as I realized later that three separate gyros is much more unstable than a single MEMS gyro chip. Anyway, I am happy I got it to lift off. I am on my second build now after figuring out all my mistakes.

    Awesome start for someone just outta school. Please never stop building stuff. Dont let engineering college ruin your engineering mind. :)

    Welcome to the forum and do let me know if you need me to procure anything to help with the build.

    @ Singh, now this is someone that DRDO could petentially hire in the future.
