Parallax ELEV-8 Quadcopter Kit

Parallax ELEV-8 Quadcopter Kit is used to create a flying robotic platform that is lifted and propelled by four fixed rotors. Unlike standard helicopters, a quadcopter uses fixed-pitch blades, whose rotor pitch does not vary as the blades rotate. Control of vehicle motion is achieved by varying the relative speed of each rotor to change the thrust and torque produced by each. The quadcopter uses a HoverFly board with a Propeller multicore microprocessor to electronically control stabilization of the aircraft. The benefits to this system are a stable platform, with no mechanical linkages, for a small maneuverable and agile aircraft. The kit provides an inexpensive way to get involved in the quadcopter arena, and includes a frame, mounting hardware, motors, speed controllers, propellers, and the control board for flight stabilization. The ELEV-8 platform is large enough for outdoor flight and has plenty of room for payload and attachments, up to 2 lbs.
