Quadcoptor Raspberry Pi

Breadboard contains AVR which is controlled by a raspberry pi over an XRF wireless link. An app on my android phone sends UDP packets to the raspberry pi which translates them and sends them onto the quad. No stablisation yet, just motor control.

  1. That is a cool project. I want one :-)

  2. Why is the AVR needed? Let the PI control the quad directly?
