A great, very basic introduction
on 3 July 2013
I'm a total newbie to the drone world and I thought I'd take a punt on this book to give me a bit of a start in the right direction. The book is short (I read it in an hour or two), assumes you know absolutely nothing about quadcopters and covers the very basics such as what quadcopters are, what you might want to do with them, how they work, the different kinds you can buy and how to get started flying them. It offers specific suggestions as to what to buy, how to go about learning and was very simple without being patronising.
My interest lies in eventually writing software to fly these things autonomously and previous to reading this book, as is typical for me, I had been researching building quadcopters for myself as a way to get started. Having read this book and realised the folly of jumping in at the deep end from the get-go I think I'll be purchasing a few ready-to-fly models to get myself used to flying these things first.
I found this to be a great introduction to the field and would highly recommend it for anyone with an interest in quadcopters. Five stars.
