I have been wanting to get around to this project for a while and I now have the time to do it. But I need some advice on a few topics. I am building an Arduino quadcopter!
Should I go brushless or brushed motors? Since my build is 85% Styrofoam I am not really sure that it matters? I am also looking to be cost effective and I already have a lot of dc motors in my place and motor shields.
If I go brushless are there any shields (esc shields) out their to ease the tediousness of wiring them? And can they also control the direction or will I have to have an extra module?
Will an arduino uno be sufficient? I currently I have a set up with the arduino uno, motorshield, connected to a radio transmitter, and hoping later to implement some motion detection and a very lightweight hack up fpv cam.
Any ideas, comments, suggestions?
