Old Project

Note: this is my old project page. My current project page is here.

As mentioned in my week 1 final project sketch, I’m building an RC glider as a first-person video and aerial video platform.

In the spirit of this class, I’m going to build the glider from scratch. Here’s what I mean by “from scratch”:

I might also end up making a propeller from scratch, depending on how hard it is to fabricate a high-quality propeller — I haven’t had the chance to do much research about this yet.

Here’s what I won’t be making from scratch (and ordering from an electronics shop instead):

I’ve made the choice to buy these parts because it’s impractical (or even unsafe, in the case of the LiPo battery) to fabricate these parts myself in the scope of this project.
