This is the first step in a more ambitious autonomous drone project, I built a drone racer using components found on the Internet to learn how this type of machine works and how to fly this type of drones.
So I started by looking at many tutorials on the internet to understand how each component is working. Then I chose the components one by one to create a drone weighing less than 250g, fast, agile and that can be controlled using an FPV headset. Here is a short video filmed by the drone in the beginning:
I then started to write a series of blog posts about each aspect of the drone :
- How to fly ?
- What is electricity and understanding the batteries
- And many others to come…
