Thomas Senkel of e-volo made this first manned flight with an e-powered multicopter at an airstrip near Karlsruhe, Germany in October 2011. The flight lasted one minute and 30 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: "The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot".
So, I get two or three emails a day, all basically asking the same thing: "Where can I learn about electronics?" In general, most of these people have seen some of my projects and want to be able to build similar things. Unfortunately, I have never been able to point them to a good site that really takes the reader through a solid introduction to microcontrollers and basic electronics. I designed this tutorial course to accompany the Arduino starter pack sold at the Adafruit webshop . The pack contains all the components you need (minus any tools) for the lessons Follow these lessons for happiness and prosperity.
