This is the first part of a two-part series where we will turn some readily available components into a quadcopter capable of taking high-quality aerial photos and stabilized HD video. The craft will also include safety features so new pilots can feel confident flying the quadcopter. A live video stream from the quadcopter is delivered to a mobile device from a Raspberry Pi over WiFi. Having a Linux computer aboard the drone also presents you with many opportunities—additional sensors, computer vision, etc.

In the first part of this series we will go through the hardware of the quadcopter—what parts you need, what each part does, and how to assemble each part. In the second part of this series we will go through the software of the quadcopter—enabling fail safes, remote control, and flight modes.
