    Default well

    The cost of building a system ( UAV ) is pretty high .

    The sensors and other technologies used will also be very hi-tech ( stuff like gyroscopic sensors , GPS , cameras ) also if your things crashes it goes all down the drain .

    Want to do something simple try a simple Helecopter availible on bazee for about 2k and come up with a simple autonomus system controlled by an onboard uC .

    I got them as free samples from analog devices. Got 2 nos. of ADXL202

    www.analog.com

    But i had to pay some Rs.250/- as duty, and that's all. Well, i'm using it for tilt measuring in my proj.
