Multicopters is an exciting new area of hobby robotics. They are also sometimes known as UAV's, and essentially they are "flying hobby robots".

They are made with a center that holds micro controllers, sensors, receivers, transmitters, power and payload. Pointing out from the center are a number of pins holding motors and propellers.

This is the first episode looking at Multicopters, and Frits has a very advanced Hexacopter in the air. Later episodes will look at products you can buy, and some cool cheap and less complex alternatives new on the market will be demonstrated.

Here are some inspiring links to other videos with other types of Multicopters:
