BUILD YOUR OWN DRONE MANUAL


BUILD YOUR OWN DRONE MANUAL

ALEX ELLIOTT    Book Number: 88670    Product format: Hardback

One of the excellent Haynes practical guides, this Owners' Workshop manual assists hobbyists to safely build, operate and maintain an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Drones are often given bad press and are linked with military air strikes and warfare, but they are much more than weapons. Thousands of hobbyists and organisations around the world use them for entertainment, research, conservation, agriculture and even to save lives. Increasingly used for commercial and private enthusiast use, there are a wide variety of 'ready-to-fly' drones and self-build kits available to suit all pockets and purposes. Whether for racing, photography, remote sensing, this extensively illustrated manual explores the types available, components and equipment including air frame, autopilot, radio control, motors, electronic speed controllers, propellers, batteries, camera gimbles and first-person view (FPV) equipment. There are three example builds including aerial photography, quadcopter, mini FPV quadcopter designed for racing, and fixed-wing drone with autopilot. Plus a whole section on flying and safety guidelines, legislation and legal considerations and learning to fly a drone safely. Even if you simply hate the noise when one is swooping overhead, they do have their uses! 156pp, colour photos throughout, 8" x 11" approx.
