The aim of the present Bachelor Final Project is making, testing and evaluating three different Micro Air Vehicle handmade power plants. All of these ones were designed and implemented with tools and materials I had to. The power plants had a common feature, hover flight. After making and testing I got different conclusions. Those ones led me to get a decision, thus I bought a commercial quadrotor called AMEWI BLASTERx80. I tried to understand how the device worked (performing reverse engineering). I implemented the same commercial IMU and power plant, but I set another microcontroller. During that process some problems arose and I had to identify and solved them. At the end, I saw the differences between commercial and handmade Micro Air Vehicles, their possibilities and future works and if it is advisable to buy commercial or make handmade MAVs. The knowledge I have been taken for years at the university helped me to develop this project. Understanding and solving the different problems I faced. The specific knowledge I needed were: · Electronics · Probability and Statistics · Programming C/C++ · Control · Physics Keywords: Quad rotor, Micro Air Vehicle (MAV), handmade, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).
