Class 8 Project - Milan's remote control aeroplane

by Cambridge Steiner School in Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire, England

We did it
On 4th November 2018 we successfully raised £120 with 5 supporters in 28 days

Hi 

My name is Milan Patel. 

I have always wanted a remote control aeroplane , so for my class 8 project I am going to make one.

It's an ambitious project, but I am confident I can do it!

I have 7 months to design, build and program the aeroplane as well as write a report. 

My plan is to use two Arduino microcontroller boards , one in the remote control the other in the aeroplane .  I will program the Arduino in the controller to take input from two joysticks and send control messages to the aeroplane .  I will program the Arduino in the aeroplane to receive the control messages and power the motor and servos. 

For all my supporters, I will send you a video of the finished aeroplane .

Thank you.

Milan
