LeQuad quadcopter

The leQuad quadcopter was designed in the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems, EPFL, which makes it easily reconfigurable and repairable. Having very lightweight and rigid frame it has a very good thrust/weight ratio allowing adding many additional components to basic configuration. It’s mostly used with our MoCap system indoors, but may be fitted with GPS sensor for outdoors experiments.

Key features:
  • Payload of 500 g
  • Custom power distribution board
  • ROS interface
  • Odroid XU4 onboard companion computer
  • Pixhawk 4 autopilot hardware
Possible applications:
  • Computer vision drone experiments
  • Drone control algorithms development
