Quadcopter Charge Notifier using Particle Photon #Droneday #drones

Really useful Photon project for sending notifications as soon as your quadcopter is done charging – could be implemented for other chargeable devices as well! Via Frederick Vandenbosch.

I received my first quadcopter for Christmas, a XS Nano Quad from Revell. It’s a tiny quadcopter, which I find extremely fun to play with. Unfortunately, the battery lasts only about 5 minutes (3.7V 100mAh) and the charge time is between 30 and 40 minutes.

Because I regularly forget I put it to charge, I decided to make a simple device which can notify me as soon as the battery is fully charged, allowing me to maximise play time!

Check out the full build here.
