5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome in-depth exploration of all aspects! 1 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was surprised to see the two star review here, but I guess it is all about expectations. This book is the only one I've found that breaks down a VTOL UAV into its core components and drills down to bedrock on each one. This is currently my bible as I try to better understand how to manipulate and optimize my machine for my intended purpose - capturing high quality cinematic footage.

You can buy ARTF kits (almost ready to fly) and with a little soldering, a little programming to get the radio set up properly, and a lot of reading on countless discussion forums (to translate vague instructions not well translated into English) you can take to the air with reasonable competence. That seems to be all the two-star reviewer would like to accomplish at this point and that's fine, but you are going to need this book soon enough! These things fly great until they don't. Your idea of what you'd like to use your quadcopter for will change, and when it does, you can hunt for an overpriced RTF that's "close" to what you need, or you can tweak your craft on your own and get it exactly right. If the latter sounds more appealing to you, this book is for you.

I'm not even building an Elev-8 quadcopter - but the topics and the clear language in this book are universal. It's rare to find someone with this level of passion and knowledge about a technical subject who can also make it this accessible.

If nothing else, this book will expose you to questions you didn't even know to ask. I bought this elsewhere because of a gift card I was given, but I bought the tablet version. I think I will order a print edition here on Amazon as I expect to spend a lot of time in this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Have to be an aeronautical engineer to read this book 1 juin 2014
Par periomao - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I completely misunderstood the purpose of this book. I thought it was how to physically BUILD a quad not program it from scratch. I'm not saying it is not a good book to read if you are an aeronautical engineer with advanced programming skills, but it is not for ME. I have done programming my whole life but not this advanced. I will see if I can return it or wait until I advance my programming skills. I give it generously two stars because it was not adequately described.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Book...but not for beginners. 29 juin 2014
Par TheDuck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a comprehensive and in depth look at every system and circuit needed to make a Elev-8 copter. I will admit it is not for people that are not somewhat familiar with engineering or technically inclined. I admit that I have a degree in engineering, but I knew nothing about RC planes and quadcopters. After reading this one book, I am comfortable talking about them with people that have built them and fly them. I will be ordering my Parallax copter next month...it looks like a new design is in the works :)

Par T Byrum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is an outstanding book for what it is. As someone with a background in computer science, some basic electronic engineering knowledge, and a ham radio license I found the material to be very approachable and a useful introduction to the underlying function of modern RC technology. I do not have nor expect to have the parallax product referenced in the book, so I was able to move quickly through sections which were specific to that hardware. The book would have been just as good if it left the parallax portions out, and even better if it replaced them with some more hardware agnostic material addressing i2c, sbus, and other common technologies in use today.

All in all, this book is the most technical book I have found on the topic and written in a way that someone new to RC but versed in adjacent field of knowledge could make great use of it. Well done to the author.

Par Jack Oliphant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The book is an excellent reference book for one looking for details at a grass roots level when building a unique quadcopter. There are numerous examples to help with understanding what the issues are for designing firmware, sizing motors, flight control considerations, etc. Very helpful for a newbie just getting into quad building. What it lacked was the latest standardized flight control PCB's like the Naze32, etc. It is oriented toward the DJI products that were current about 18 months an earlier ago.
I recommend the book to any newbie and it would be helpful to sit down with a very experienced quad builder to help with some of the details if details are important. Somewhat like a new aspiring pilot would do with a CFI.
