Controlling toy flyers

Abstract

This project is the continuation of the work of Bernard Gütermann about Hacking and Controlling Toy Flyers but on a specific commercial platform, the dragonfly from Wow Wee Flytech. The goals of this project is to completely design a new PCB for piloting the flyer, using some sensors, improving the performance of this flyer and try to make some control on it. To achieve these goals, the following tasks must be done. First to look for the new components, then designing the electronic circuit and the PCB for finally programing the DsPic on the new board. Some experiments will then be done which will require some mechanical adjustment.
