Future Developments and More Information
Just because his project is a success doesn't mean it's finished. William still has plenty of ambition for his Shrediquette project. He is now working on a solution to incorporate a GPS unit into the Shrediquette platform for fully automated control. Once incorporated into the DLXm model, it has the potential to become the world's smallest autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
He has also done experiments using Webcam tracking where a computer watches the tri-copter and controls it via a wireless link. It's a relatively new method in automated flight, but it has a lot of potential. Many universities are researching the very same method.
If you're interested in building a Shrediquette-based tri-copter yourself, William has created a very thorough and well-crafted instruction guide available here. William also updates a blog displaying his progress on current projects, including Shrediquette.
