Let me guess why you are reading this chapter—because you have some knowledge of Arduino and you are interested in building something awesome with it, which is a drone. Right? If yes, then this book is for you. Throughout this book, we will learn how to build a full-phase drone with the help of Arduino and other technologies. We will also build some prototype drones. If you don't have a basic idea about Arduino, I would recommend you read Learning C for Arduino before starting this book. In this book, we will learn how to build a drone from scratch and we will also modify the drone to serve our other purposes, such as Follow Me drones, mission-control drones, selfie drones, gliding drones, and racing drones. We will also learn how to maintain the drones and troubleshoot when needed.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Definition and usages of drones
- Types of drones
- How we can identify or differentiate drones
- Introducing things needed to build a drone
If you feel enthusiastic about build your own drone, then come with me; let's start a journey together to build drones and have a lot of fun.
