Using Raspberry Pi to fly robots

You've now built robots that can move around on a wheeled structure, robots that have legs, and robots that can sail. You can also build robots that can fly by relying on Raspberry Pi to control their flight. There are several possible ways to incorporate Raspberry Pi into a flying robotic project, but the most straightforward way is to add it to a quadcopter project.

Quadcopters are a unique subset of flying platforms that have become very popular in the last few years. They are flying platforms that utilize the same vertical lift concept as helicopters. However, they employ not one, but four motor/propeller combinations to provide an enhanced level of stability. If you'd like to know more about how quadcopters ...
