The Multi-Rotor Hobbyist — Taking the Earth’s Temperature with Aerial Infrared Mapping
Knowing the temperature of the earth’s surface can tell us a lot of things. So, we’ll build an infrared/color sensor package and install it on a multi-rotor to collect our own ground temperature surveys.
Taking on a challenge presented by Kyle Singer to build a 12 lb Hobbyweight robot.
I knew with the lack of events in the Midwest, someday I would have to travel for a robotics tournament.
After looking at several designs and weapons, I chose to design a full-body “shell” spinner.
