How does one begin to make their own drowns?

  1. If you're looking to get started as quickly as possible, you might want to look into ready-made quadrotors, such as the AR.Drone by Parrot, or the DJI Phantom. They generally require very little setup.

    If you're looking for something more sophisticated, however, a good place to start is by looking at a website called DIYDrones.com. It's an online community full of people who are putting together different kinds of aerial robots, including multirotors (like the quadrotors I mentioned) and fixed-wing (small unmanned airplanes, basically).

    3DRobotics.com sells a lot of drone equipment, from autopilot systems to aerial robot kits.

  2. The AR.Drone was my first quadcopter, and it probably THE most beginner friendly platform out there (if you have a smartphone or tablet, as thats how you control it).

    If you're looking to go really in depth and understand every subsystem Drones need to operate, then DIYDrones.com is definitely your place.

  5. It also only partially answers Hlompho's question also - Matthew do we have a Wikispace operational for this educational context?
