At what point does it become a fleet?


The tricopter now has a baby brother. Meet the Pocket Quad!

Now that winter is upon us, days on which it isn’t raining, foggy or blowing a gale are few and far between, so I wanted something inexpensive to practice with that I could fly indoors.

It’s a Hobbyking Pocket Ultra Micro Quad v1.1, which is essentially an Arduino running the MultiWii flight controller software. It’s a lot of fun to fly, seems to be pretty crash resistant, and as I’m learning about programming Arduinos in my spare time anyway, should be a good candidate for some hacking and tinkering further down the line.

Nothing in the flat or office is safe any more!
