We’ve all seen the very popular quadcopters that people enjoy making. But today I found something new (to me, at least!) and exciting on Instructables — a hexacopter drone made using the chipKIT Wi-FIRE and the chipKIT PGM Programmer/Debugger.
The DAQopter, made by Instructables useris a data acquisition and monitoring system for a wide range of signals: video, distance measuring, temperature measuring, and GPS tracking (all collected in various environments via a hexacopter drone controlled by a wireless signal using Digilent’s chipKIT Wi-FIRE board and an Android device for overall system control and mobility).
Check it out and let us know if you make it!
