This is going to be the biggest quadcopter ever


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Surely the biggest quadcopter of all time was the Piasecki PA-97 Helistat, which connected four medium transport helicopters.

    It worked about as well as you’d expect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7jENWKgMPY

  2. 😀
    who let kanye in here?

  3. from the pics, all of the props are going to rotate the same way. the will be inherent stability issues(gyroscopic rotation)

    the successful units have two pairs of counter-rotating props to counter this.

  4. Hi sqkybeaver,

    Each fan is mounted on a servo controlled trunnion oriented such that there is a few degrees of thrust vectoring available in the tangential axis. This is the mechanism through which the torque of the fans is canceled.

    Ideally, it will also assist in translation and rotation. We’ll see.
