quadrotor case How To: Quadrotor Transport Case
Instructables user Brian Ward posted this how-to for building a wooden storage and transport case for quadrotors. Inspiration for this project came from a falling box that broke the frame of his his own hand-built copter. He used Autodesk Inventor to design the case and a ShopBot CNC router to cut the pieces out of 3/4″ plywood. One commenter suggests making the box bigger so that the rotor blades can turn while inside the case and rigging up the doors to spring open so that the copter can fly right out of the box. For version 2, perhaps? [via Adafruit]
