Arducopter is an easy to use multirotor / helicopter UAV. Arducopter runs on the ArduPilot/Pixhawk autopilot. With GPS, this APM/pixhawk is a complete UAV solution that sets it apart from traditional multirotor which often only support remote control. The Arducopter system features fully autonomous way-point based flight, with mission planning and real time telemetry via the powerful ground control station. The code is capable of controlling all of the major rotor wing airframes, including Traditional Helicopters, Tricopter(3/Y6), Quadrotor (X/+), Hexa(X/+), and Octa(X/+/V). All you need to do is change the firmware and some parameters on your ArduPilot Mega board.
Note that Arducopter software is fairly mature and has some great power features, but is considered to be at the end of its life, from a software viewpoint, future features are due to be on the Pixhawk only.
VRBRAIN autopilot system is a versatile UAV system based around the VRBRAIN multipurpose board loaded with a 32 bit version of Arducopter firmware and a ground station based on Mission Planner software. The autopilot controls the multicopter during flight using internal gyroscopes, accelerometers, and other electronic components. Flight missions are created using Mission Planner on your ground station and loaded onto the autopilot. Once the copter is placed in autonomous mode, the autopilot receives location data from the GPS module and executes the mission script. For safety, a radio control (RC) receiver is connected to the APM to allow for manual control using an RC transmitter.
APM, PX4 and Pixhawk are "open source" and "open hardware" and are supported by an international team of developers. Pixhawk and VRBrain development is ongoing and improvements and new capabilities are added very frequently.
Creating your own drone
Flight controller ArduPilot Mega or Pixhawk
Frame (or multi-rotor frame)
Motor to rotates the propeller
ESC are used to control the brushless motors and are rated in terms on Amps, the amp rating of your ESC will need to match that of the motor you are using
Multi-rotors generally use large propellers, 10x45, and 12x47 are the most popular.
Battery and Charger
Wireless Telemetry Kit
Optical Flow Sensor - used to help with position hold at low altitudes.
Ultrasonic Rangefinder (Sonar) used to help with your drone altitude hold at low altitudes (under 10m), above 10m the built in barometer is used.
Battery Monitor to warn you when the battery is low so you can land.

The most important part of your drone is the flight controller. There are currently two main boards to choose from, ArduPilot Mega v2.6 or Pixhawk. The flight controller keeps your multi-rotor stable while you are flying in manual mode, and can take over to fly to 3D waypoints when you fly in autonomous mode.
The pilot must have the flying object within his field of vision at all time. Autonomous flights and flights using a first person view (FPV) are only permitted if the pilot can see the drone and is able to intervene at any time.&160; In principle, drones may not be operated either above gatherings of people or without direct eye contact. In certain exceptional cases, however, the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) may grant permits for such operations. Flying drones …
