Summary of Project Idea

I've been thinking about designing autopilots for some time now. To get the project off the ground, I'm planning on starting with a little and hopefully easy to control helicopter, initially understanding the concepts for the helicopter to fly, and then later on automating those functions so the helicopter just hovers. From there, complete the control system to allow the helicopter to fly around controlled via an RC kit (reusing the kit used from understanding the concepts for the helicopter to fly) or a joystick connected to a computer, then adding in positioning functions (GPS and air speed sensors) to allow for a basic autopilot which can be built on.
