Quadcopter – Officially Underway

Well, here it goes. I just placed three orders for circuit boards for the main quadcopter components. This is what I’m going with:

Main control board. ATxmega256A3U, MPU-6050, MTK3339 GPS (eventually).

Computer side of the TX/RX system. Based on the nRF24LU1+.

Quadcopter side of the TX/RX system. Designed to sit on top, not unlike an Arduino shield. Based on the nRF24LU1+.

As you can see, I’ve got quite a bit of work (and money) put into this already. I still will have to buy motors, buy or design ESCs, and write code. I sure hope this turn out.
