Project Description

This project is still in progress, but I decided to post it on my website so that anyone that finds their way here can see my progress. My goal for this project, is to complete a quadcopter that is controlled by an Arduino, that sends a wireless video stream to the controller. The controller is designed to look like a Nintendo Switch, with a 7 inch touch screen integrated into the case. The controller sends signals to the drone using a long range radio module. The drone is equipped with the same module, and responds to the given commands. The FPV system is built on top of the EZ-Wifibroadcast Raspberry Pi image, which uses long range Wifi modules to transmit a constant video stream. The drone constantly sends the camera feed to the controller, which displays it on the 7 inch touchscreen. There are many customizations I plan to implement, but depending on the success of this version, they may get delayed until the next version.
