The final project includes a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter board uses the ATMega328 chip as well but in a DIP format. It has place for a MPU6050 gyro so the control could be made just by moving the controller. It uses 2 cheap joysticks for 4 analog channels and 2 switches for another two digital channels. The radio module is a NRF24 with power amplified antenna and a range up to 700m in open field.
A 3D printed case will eb included in the kit so the controller would look a lot better. To pwoer both boards, a simple 3.7V battery could be used for the drone and a 9V one for the transmitter. The code for the drone is quite complicate and it's in its 6th version. The PID control for such a small drone is not easy. ELECTRONOOBS already presented a video on how to to that on his YouTube channel
. We are waiting for more updates on this project. If you want nice PCB services and get your own boards for 5$, check PCBWay.com
