My New "Vehicle"

Ok, so this technically doesn't have wheels, but work with me here. Living in the city with limited parking will severely hamper the ability to work with cars, so I fly instead.

I have flown helicopters for a while, as well as smaller consumer level quad-copters, but this is my newest horse in the stable. It's a hexacopter(or more technically, a Y6 copter) that I have been building for a while.

My New "Vehicle"


For those of you who have never really looked into RC flying before (which I presume is a large majority you), This is a 6 motor, 6 propeller machine with an intelligent flight controller that makes the whole thing possible. This is about 2 feet in diameter, can run for 10-15 minutes per battery, and even carry about 2 kilograms of cargo.

This intelligent flight controller can do much more than just allowing you to fly this thing. Controllable by a computer, this device can autonomously send your device wherever you like with a GPS coordinates, take off and land, and even control a camera or other on board devices.

All that is left before I am up in the air are for more props to come in. And for those who are wondering why I wanted to build one, here is why: Rally Video.


If anybody is interested or has questions, feel free to post in the comments. If enough people are interested, I'll write some articles for your enjoyment.

UPDATE: I started another blog, FlyingMachines, where I am starting a series of articles all about Drones and Multi-Copters.
