So recently I ended up involved with a project where we were looking to build a drone of some kind, the people involved were smart and watching one of the quadcopters being flown using first person view (FPV) goggles got me really interested…

…and now here I am trying to learn to fly my quadcopter.

The building side of it was relatively easy, and I’ve already got some thoughts on how to improve the current drone. Firstly by cutting out a load of wiring from the battery to the ESC loom I used, and also adding in some tail LEDs, the latter will hopefully make it easier to keep track of orientation when I’m flying it without using the goggles.

Now it’s a case of practicing the flying and always ensuring I have a stash of spare (balanced) props.
