[edit] Build a Quadrokopter - Workshop

This is a workshop to build unmanned aerial vehicles. These UAVs are based on the Mikrokopter project.

[edit] Project

The Mikrokopter is a quadrocopter project which was founded by Holger Buss and Ingo Busker. At the Chaos Communicaton Camp there was the first drone workshop ever. It was very hard back then because the hardware was not presoldered and not preassembled. But now, it is possible to build your own drone within five hours. For the workshop we have complete kits of Mikrokopters.

More interessting things about the Mikrokopter can be found at the website.


[edit] Contact

The Workshop-Coordinator is Hoppel. He is a long-time member and betatester for the Mikrokopter. If you want to build a drone, contact him:
