I currently need to have an octocopter or quadricopter designed from scratch. This is a very tough project because everything must be done from non-copyrighted material and must meet a set of criteria, specifications and standards. An example of what I need done is very much similar to 3DR ArduCopter Hexa-C and Parrot : AR Drone 2.0. I will also require parts lists and materials used. This isn't something I expect to be done immediately and will require perhaps concepts and design stages. My specialization is managing, so I'm unsure if a software engineer is required to work with. It would be great if someone could do both!
My project needs to have the following features:
USB port for data storage.
HD Camera output.
Quiet running when in use.
Large battery life.
MUST have 3G connectivity to be controlled from either smartphones or a controller.
Easy to use.
Please note my budget doesn't mean I can't stretch but usually I will pick the cheapest freelancer.
Please contact me if there's anything I've missed out or if you have any other questions.
