Home-made drone:

Laser-cut wood as a frame, Arduino as a flight controller, gyroscope from a Wii controller.

The rest is off-the-shelf: motors, ESC controllers, RC equipment.

I'll be honest, with those motors it's almost too agile for me not to crash it eventually 😂

But I'm mostly used to flying heavy, slow but stable hexacopters with camera equipment attached.

The big advantage that comes with this design: a new wood-frame is laser-cut within 10 minutes and costs you just a few pennies.

@fribbledom that's awesome. is the design and stuff open source? that might be a good project for the ppl at chaostreff wallis
