Crazycopter - Crazy Flie Quadcoper
Buzzing like a fly, this quadcopter is a prototype of the CrazyCopter project. It equips four motors and one PCB to traverse the sky way. Yes, something similar was used in one of the popular Bollywood flick, albeit the size is miniature enough to believe it’s an insect. At mere 20 grams, the PCB is light enough for swift movements.
Its creators Arnaud Taffanel , Tobias Antonsson , Marcus Eliasson of Daedalus preferred using a PS2 joystick for controlling it. “You can use other controllers such as the Wii remote too but due to intensive gaming we prefer the PlayStation joystick”, said one of the makers. He further spoke about the applications and revealed how a camera can be mounted on the copter for surveillance.
Along with the mouse, compass, and ultrasonic sensor, the magnetic field independent of rotation rate sensor helps in the determination of the position and direction. Check out the video and you’ll know how swift it is.
