Drone It Yourself

Student project from Jasper van Loenen that can turn any object into a remote controlled flying machine (whether it is a bicycle wheel, a computer keyboard, a book, a telephone etc …) - video embedded below:

The DIY (Drone It Yourself) v1.0 kit offers you the opportunity to turn any object into a drone*, simply by attaching four motors and a control unit – no technical know-how needed. The kit consists of multiple parts that are easy to assemble and can be attached to a wide range of different objects.

For more advanced uses, you can take the original designs and alter the kit by making your own custom clamps or add-ons as needed.

The plastic parts have been 3D printed in ABS. The control unit contains a receiver, four ESCs, a bluetooth module and an
OpenPilot CC3Dflightcontroller.

I wonder what the max weight this thing can lift. Still, pretty sweet.
