DIY Wooden Quadrocopter

It’s easy to understand why everybody would be drooling over the Parrot AR.Drone, though if you don’t have the bread and want to own a cool quadrocopter of your own, you could always build one yourself, which is what someone out there did. Using plans from an old Roswell Quadrocopter kit, he created his own flying beast that can hover and automatically fly to coordinates via GPS, or you can switch to first-person view and fly it wherever you want. This quadrocopter was entered into the Minnesota State Fair’s “airplane flying model, scratch built” class and came in second, though it wasn’t mentioned what came in first. Instructions have been posted online, so if you think you can do a better job, you’re free to give it a shot.
