This past Friday, we celebrated our Open Hardware Week here at Opensource.com with a staff open hardware workshop. Among the many fun things ranging from 3D printing to tinkering with Arduino boards and related electronics, I brought in a tiny remote control quadcopter which got back in December. It isn’t open hardware per se, but I figured buying a cheaper version would be a good option for me before I made the commitment to invest in pricier hardware for a DIY approach. The verdict? Totally fun! We had some nice minorly-destructive crashes inside Red Hat Tower before calling it a day.
