I've always wanted a quadcopter but the ones on the market are just too expensive
so i came up with this version of a quadcopter, it's fully operational but has a wired remote

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Propellors
for the propellors i cut out plastic strips from a milk bottle and shaped it by heating it over a candle and bending it
Step 2: Body
For making a lightweight and durable body
i used cottontail stalks.
I pierced a hole into one stalk and inserted the other one through it.
Step 3: Motors
I salvaged motors from an old and broken toy and pushed the propellors onto the motors, i then glued the propellors to the motor and the motors to the body.
Step 4: Battery
i used a lithium ion battery from a broken phone and created a compartment for it using styrofoam.
Step 5: Wiring and Remote
i attached all the negative terminals from the motors to the negative terminals on the battery.
i then attached the positive terminals to a long wire and made makeshift switches for each of the motors, i glued these switches to a piece of cardboard.
