Welcome to Open Circuits, Dawime.
Thank you for making Open Circuits a better place. I hope you enjoy reading OpenCircuits and sharing your knowledge with us.
A few tips:
- You can "sign" your contributions by typing four tildes "~~~~" at the end.
- Be bold with your editing. If you add information that really belongs on some other page of this wiki (or on some other wiki entirely), or you accidentally delete some crucial stuff, it's fairly easy for anyone to fix it. Please feel free to revert or otherwise fix-up any of my edits that turn out to be erroneous or misguided or both.
- Sometimes it is faster to fix my misguided edits and delete spam (and restore what the spammer may have deleted) by pressing the "undo" button on the page history "diff" page.
- We are all volunteers here.
Please feel free to talk about your electronics experiences here.

I see that http://quadheli.com/ is now online. Yay! A blog is great for documenting progress, how far you've come, what you did last time, etc. A wiki page is great for documenting the latest version current state of the project, listing unresolved problems that people can help you with, and other FAQs about the project. I went ahead and created a page multi-rotor here at Open Circuits. Don't make me regret it :-). Are you using a gumstix? If so, then perhaps the gumstix wiki would be a better place for your quadheli FAQ.
p.s.: I suspect that 6 rotors may be the optimum number of rotors. A helicopter with 6 rotors (if properly designed) can do things that are impossible with fewer than 6 control surfaces. --DavidCary 17:19, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
I plan on updating things, and getting wikis, a svn repository and better organization in general to organize the project. I do think 6 is where I want to be, however, I figured it would be a tad cheaper to 4 rotors first, and from there go to 6.
