Check out this "how-to" from our Hackers in Residence
A few months back, Director of Education Lindsay Levkoff came up with the idea for SparkFun to create a “hacker-in-residence” program. We’d invite one (or two) of the amazingly smart and motivated people we’ve met over the years to spend a week or two at SparkFun building something awesome.
Tara and Sean wanted to build a quadcopter that was tethered to the ground, allowing unlimited flight time (admittedly with a very small range) and plenty of power for peripherals. The results were pretty great! Tara and Sean also wrote a tutorial about their project - click here to learn how to build your own tethered quad!
