I am looking to build a quadcopter myself, but an indoor one.
I have a very tight budget of £250 for this project.
Can someone recommend some sort of shopping list for this project? I would like: - a controller - an IMU to tell the position of the quad in space (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10121?) - a ping sensor/sonar - potentially GPS
I would love for it to be able to have lots of spare power as I would like to mount a camera in the near future, which can relay data via wifi. I don't know whether this makes any real difference to the controller used.
I know there are pre-made solutions for this already, like the ArduCopter board and what not, but £200 on a board seems quite overkill.
I have put some research into this already, it isn't a quick post to a forum to get someone else to do the hardwork, so I do have an idea of what I need. I would like to see if someone who knows what they are doing it able to come up with a similar shopping list, so I don't end up buying something that either isn't needed, or doesn't work with my solution.
Thanks a lot. Mike
