Sooooo guys,
my dad and I have been thinking of building our own quadcopter straight from scratch. Only problem is, getting all the electronics and all together.
Now, my dad says that he wants ME to design and code the damn thing :p And i hardly know much about coding other than .NET.......
So, he says that there's this website called microchip.com. they have microchipDirect which distributes chips and parts, and they have the main website and all....
Now, i need to know which parts I need to be able to make the brains and motor controls of the quad......if ANY of you know about this topic, and are familliar with microchip, or similar things, help would be appreciated.
Feel free to ask me any questions you need, and i will try my best to answer them.
Best Regards

Tell your Dad it's a risky business. If you don't code the wi-fi side securely, some nasty person might take control of it and make it crash. There's a lot of folks around who don't like being photographed by drones and they can stop them doing it.
