Make: Magazine, Volume 44 - PDF
From fun DIY projects to functional arial platforms with world-class photographic capability, drones have swept in for a total takeover of Volume 44.
In Make: Volume 44, we'll take your love of drones to the next level! These days drones are buzzing, not only in the skies, but throughout the maker community! Makers’ love affair with drones is easy to understand: it has all the trademarks of the maker movement.
From open source hardware, robotics (like sensors), cameras, to innovative applications to solve real-world problems, drones are fun and functional. Here, the editors dive into the red-hot world of quadcopters, with drone builds and inspired aerial activities. Destined to be a $1B market by 2018, according to The Economist, in 2015 there will be over 100 different types and models of drones.
This issue shows makers everything they need to know, from how to scratch-build four different multicopters to learning how to set up a first-person interview (FPV) race course and take part in high-speed acrobatics. This second issue of Make: on drones also features all the projects, tutorials and skill-builders that will keep makers of all levels immersed in the fascinating subject and latest drone technology.
