    Thesis Prep – Scout 2.0

    2011 - 02.13

    For my thesis I will continue developing my project Scout. This time I will take what I learned from building Scout to create a new design. For thesis, I will be creating a second version of Scout. Scout 2.0 will have 4 motors instead of two, allowing for a greater lifting power. Instead of using Lego bricks for the airframe, I will use carbon fiber. Choosing carbon fiber as the building material for the airframe will allow for a more rigid and lighter frame. I will then install a auto-stabliizing system. This will allow Scout to auto level itself and allow the user to focus on navigation.
