Idea: Building a high power Quadcopter that can lift up to 2.5 kg of extra equipment or batteries without loosing stability. My initial idea was to mount a high resolution camera to the rig and use it for filming performances on stage or fast speed races (Karting, Rally, ...). It could also be used for security patrols on borders or big events. (crowd control and overview)

Building materials: (Starting to buy components, still looking for someone with a high power laser cutter, 3mm Alu)

Sensors:

Mechanics and power:

Logic, transmission & stuff:

Arduino solution: (- lack of power, - no video + cheap, + fast + light)

Optional: (other applications)
