Un papa friki, o geek, que queda más fino, y aburrido es lo más creativo del mundo, y más aún cuando los churumbeles estan en periodo vacacional y piden material para la mente.
En este caso el papa se puso a realizar todo un quadcopter basado en LEGO, eso si, con un arducopter como controlador :)

En este vídeo podéis ver el "engendro", por aquello de que tiene un estilo arácnido:




Y aquí la lista de partes segun consta en su Youtube, ya que no hay web aparentemente:

This is a project is a fully autonomous self flying quadcoptor frame 100% from LEGO's. Arducoptor board to achieve autonomous flight, the frame was designed using LEGO Digital Designer (LDD)

Once we added the ArduCoptor board it became a 100% autonomous drone that can fly ob its own without human intervention, we only need the stick for take off or in case something went wrong and needed to take over. When the quad gets to its assigned first waypoint it just continues to all 3 and then back to launch point on its own, a real Drone.
Once launched it uses GPS to navigate the waypoints on its own.
