Ultra cheap RC quadcopter (preferably using brushed motors)
Hey everyone.... :)
I'm organising a camp to encourage high school students to take up STEM courses..... and I'd like to have them build their own RC quadcopters. I want the course to have a minimal fee.... so the quad should be INSANELY CHEAP.
The quad should be able to do just one thing:FLY.
Also, durability is not an issue.... just one or two flights should be sufficient.
1)Can someone please suggest a design using brushed instead of brushless motors? (Simply because they're cheaper)
2)If there's any way I can build a flight controller using off-the-shelf components.... please share your ideas..
3)I have no idea about how to make the remote control/ RF transmitter....... is it the same as that of an RC toy car remote control?
4)I've come across some lovely designs where the frame is made out of paper or cardboard.... so that's not an issue.
Help in any form is welcome.... I'd love to hear from y'all....
Thanks in advance...:)
