Logica Quadrocopter engine test (Video)

Posted by Ingmar Hendriks on 3 January 2011

Just before Xmas I was able to do the first test flight with the quadrocopter that I am building for my graduation assignment.

With this test flight i was able to show my project leader that it will be able to lift sufficient weight to carry the onboard computer + payload.

Because the onboard system is not finished yet, we were unable to control the 4 engines separately and as a result were unable to steer the craft. So to do the test we simply put all the engines to full throttle and connected the quadrocopter to the desk with duck-tape and string (my version of a high-tech test environment)
