I'd love to make a UAV, which I can fly with a joystick connected to my laptop - a bit like flight simulator.

That would be awesome, sitting in the living room with the laptop on my lap, whilst my little 'drone' flies overhead.

Yeah...:D

That would be a dream project, building a wireless power system using directed low-loss RF beams.
More about my dream project, to help build the TD3.

TD-3 demonstration modules for high-voltage
(kV), high power directed-energy demonstrator.

Again, I want to fly like that 4 propeller helicopter.

That chopper is quick.
I think the moves are programmed and video is time scaled.

How can that thing can be motion less in mid air outside a lab.

My dream project is solar energy project I read a lot about it. i am not sure what I could use in start..

You need to consider How much solar power do you want to make first, But Also how much money are you willing to spend.. This is the start.

Then check for parts it's easily available from the internet and/or your local stores.

An automated autonomous helicopter or airplane. An AI mini toy drone. Basically think an RC helicopter that can fly on its own and avoid objects.

I might do that for my senior design project, but its probably better to do something an actual company would be impressed with.

I will still build one of these babies someday though!!! Oh and it will shoot mini missiles at insects. ;)

Don't forget the government. If you design something like that, the DOD might show some interest.

I can imagine alot of interest for a small rc drone which can avoid objects. Straight off, the services - not just military, but the fire service could use them to check out burning or dangerous buildings; the police could use them to check dangerous situations.

I can't think of any others at the moment, but there should be many other applications.

Found a rival corporation to Intel, I guess? But seriously, that's among the longest shots people have written here. Good luck with that.

Did I post this in the wrong thread or did someone delete their post? Someone was talking about having to go into debt to pay for a college education that got them nowhere.
