DRONE DESIGN

In 2015, Jonny built a novel design of drone, doing all the hardware and software himself. This drone has two axially attached motors, which tilted in two different axes for flight control. Unfortunately, initial designs did not take gyroscopic precession into effect and the craft was uncontrollable.
