If you have fancied building your very own DIY drone you may be interested to know that next month’s issue of HackSpace for September 2018, created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Provides full instructions on how to build your very own drone and take to the skies using a home-made flying machine.
“Ever since Icarus flew too close to the sun, man has dreamed of flight. Thanks to brushless motors, cheaper batteries than ever before, and smaller, more powerful microcontrollers, pretty much anyone with the right know-how can build their own drone. Discover the crucial steps you need to get right; find the right motors, propellers, and chassis; then get out there while the weather is still good and soar like a PCB eagle.”
Other features within the latest issue of HackSpace include a rocket launching robot, hardware hacking for the environment, competitions to win PCBs and more.
