The Drone

 

Idea

We wanted to create the world’s smallest brushless dc (BLDC) quadcopter.

Nowadays there are tons of quadcopter around in generally they are all the same and quite big.

So the Idea was to create a quadcopter out of a single PCB holding all the electronics and of course also the motors.

 

Features

  • Main CPU Arm Coretex M3
  • 4 x sensor less BLDC driver AVR based
  • Integrated 9DOF IMU by Vectornav
  • Controllable by Bluetooth.
    • Joystick
    • Windows Software
  • Everything on a single PCB
  • Extension connectors
