My sons

My sons and I have a lot of the same interests. Amongst others we like radio controlled stuff.

Remote controlled cars...
remote controlled heli...
and an indoor rc plane.

But what we don't have yet is a drone, so my oldest decides that we should have one too.


Build or buy?

Drones or quadcopters come in all sizes and shapes. One can choose one that fits in the palm of your hand or one that is nearly powerfull enough to lift a person.

You also need to decide if you want to buy one that flies right out of the box or to build one from the ground up.

This last option is what we thought would give us the most fun and satisfaction.

In following articles we will share our adventures and try to document the building process so that you don't make the same mistakes as we will make.
