Before I could start with the drone, I had to know how exactly I would make it.

To begin, I made a very rough sketch of the body and where the main parts would be.

The part in red is the wing and body. The body is the long piece pointing to the top. It is connected to the side flaps, capable of going up, down, left and right. The body has an actuator system of sorts that allow for auto balancing within the drone (but more on that another day).

The white circles are the EDFs (they will be designed by me) that will have one in the center being 400mm and two to the back being 200mm. The front works as a lifting force being able to slightly curve itself, while the two at the back are able to go left, right up and down.

The yellow part will house the two back edfs and majority of the electronics. It is made as a modular piece that will be able to easily connect to the body and side. It will also have a USB hub for easy sensor change.

The scale of the entire thing will be based around the side of the yellow part (let's call it the Mother Box). The maximum weight allowed for the MotherBox will be 5 lbs. The MotherBox is the most important as it's what allows for everything to run. I then thought of all the things I wanted the drone to be able to do.

- Health Monitoring

- Integrated Chatbot

- Multi Vision Capability

- Image/Face Recognition

- Auto Balancing Software

- Phone/Computer Control

- Follow Function

- Protect User Function

- High Modularity

- Object Avoidance

- GPS Navigation

- Internet Connection

- Zoom In Capability

- Bluetooth Connection

- Auto Mode

- Grab Function

- Speaker Function

- Auto Charge

- LiPo Powered

- Solar Powered

- Auto Balance System

And I want this all to work from one computer. My goal price for this entire thing is $650 as if I am able to get it to that price, I will be able to have it mass manuafactured at a lower price. I am also trying to balance quality and Quantity so that will be a fun challenge. For now however I can start on designing the Mother Box! To EasyEDA I go!
