The PlutoX Aerial Robotics Kit is a DIY quadcopter that you can program and add your own hardware to. This unique device is perfect for experimenters, hobbyists and basically anyone who is interested in developing a project that can fly.
In this article I’ll introduce you to the PlutoX and to the Cygnus IDE, the development environment you’ll use to write code for the drone.
Quadcopters and drones – they’re in the news and in the air! And while they might just look like souped-up helicopters not everyone knows exactly how they fly. Come to think of it, not everyone knows how a helicopter flies either!
In this article I’ll explain how a quadcopter works – how it flies and what components are used to put together one of these amazing little devices. If you’re planning on building your own quadcopter one day then this is mandatory reading!
