At the beginning

We are a group of people interested in unmanned vehicles/systems specially aerial platforms. Our members are:
@Juanki, the frame builder
@Nio, the official pilot
@Nacho, the wii guy
@JA, the only-with-sonar-pilot!

We get our inspiration from Arduino, Aeroquad and lately Arducopter. We are now following all the activity in rcgroups specially the ardupirates group.

Our first approach to the rc world has been a clone of the great @JoseJulio's tiny quadcopter. You can find all the information in the following links:

These are some videos of our clones:
