Profile Info

Caleb saw an article in the News about how the Department of Conservation was trying to spread seed and wanted to help. He invented the RC Seed Spreader and made a model of an aerial vehicle designed to spread seeds. Ailerons are controlled by servo over wireless by the transmitter, the micro for speed control is the PicAxe 14M2. An accelerometer module controls the speed of the aircraft model by simply tilting the transmitter.

RC Seed Spreader was a finalist in the 13-14 Category, great work Caleb!
