Winning the FAB8 flight competition

Knut Klo, Haakon Karlsen Jr. and I won the FAB8 design competition in Wellington, New Zealand. Our hexacopter easily managed to stay the required 30 seconds in the air. The amazing guys at Phothigher saved the day by lending us one of their micro controllers when we couldn’t get the Ardupilot to work in time. Also a big thanks to all the people from the FabLab community who helped me troubleshoot the RF communications. More pictures in the post.You can download the sourcefiles here. A more detailed tutorial on building your own is on its way. We would love all kinds of help on developing the flight electronics with the FabLab PCB milling process.
