You've read about drones. You've seen drones. Now, build your own personal drone!

Drones are the newest frontier for the DIY/maker community -- and you don't need to be an electronics or programming expert to create your own. John Baichtal, the #1 best-selling author of hardware hacking books for beginners, will guide you gently up the learning curve, teaching you all the skills you need.

Baichtal won't just show you the amazing drones others have built: he'll walk you through ten complete, step-by-step projects. This lush, 4-color guide is loaded with step-by-step photos that guide you every step of the way. Whenever you're ready to learn more about challenging concepts, Baichtal's detailed sidebars explain them in plain English.

Here are just some of the projects you'll find in Building Your Own Drones:

Kit-based drones such as 3DRobotics' Y6 Quadrotor helicopters Rocket drones built from model rocket components Radio-controlled lighter-than-air "blimps" Complete remote flight control systems, including an Arduino-based autopilot Waterborne drones Rolling robots that navigate via RFID tags, and more
