The project's goal ist to develop a OpenSource multicopter that is capable of autonomously searching an pre-defined area for landmines. Furthermore the copter's technology will be able to record points of interest with geo-coordinates for post-analysis on a map.
The copter should be designed in a way, that makes it easy reconstructable by others, it should be low cost and use technology that can be easily obtained.
Why it is awesome: It is awesome, because this project delivers a low-cost, low-risk, DIY-Solution for a grave problem (110 million landmines).
