MR1 Hexacopter Project

       These pages document my experience building an experimental multi-rotor aircraft. I have compiled some photos as well as building notes of my time spent building the project. I am posting this information for the benefit of other experimenters and aircraft enthusiasts. If you have any comments or questions about this project please feel free to contact me.

Thanks, Don Giandomenico
