Learn how to design, build, fly and even code your own raspberry pi drone from scratch!

What you'll learn

How to use python to script automatic drone missions

Learn to fly a drone with the open source ArduPilot firmware

How to design a drone and find the right parts

How to take raw parts and build a flyable drone

Compile your own firmware right from the drone

Learn about the fundamental drone parts


Windows computer

Raw parts to build a drone (motors, frame, escs, lipos, raspberry pi/navio etc) Estimated cost: ~$450

Have basic tools (soldering iron, screw driver, allen wrench, drill would be helpful)



Welcome to the 'Build a Linux Based Raspberry Pi Drone' course, where we will be covering the gauntlet of drone related subjects. Most drone build courses will only show you how to put together pre-selected parts, without providing the potent 'why' behind the choices. And they certainly don't show you how to code your own automatic missions with python. This course will cover it all. Whether you want to simply build a flyable drone from scratch, or to learn how to select parts to design your own drone, or even to learn about software that would allow you to script automatic drone missions (for that new 'taco delivery' company idea?), we'll go over it in this course with a unique Linux based Raspberry Pi drone!

In this course, you will learn:

Hardware: Basic Drone Components (GPS, motors, ESCs, LiPos etc)

Design: How to find the basic hardware parts to build your own drone

Building: Assemble and build your drone from the parts that were chosen from the design process

Flying: Basic flying and best practices

Coding: SSH into your Linux drone and configure/code it from the command line

Some highlights we will learn from the 5 sections:

Learn of the special units for all your required hardwire (Example: What does the C-rating of a LiPo battery actually mean? How do mAh and Coulombs relate? What's the difference between a 2300 Kv motor and a 935 Kv motor?)

Different methods of estimating thrust/current draw of your drone design before you buy the parts

Soldering ESCs to the power distribution board

Setting up Telemetry and connecting your drone to Mission Planner (our ground control station)

Different types of flight modes we can fly our drone with (Example: Loiter- GPS based mode that attempts to lock the drone in a single point in 3D space, Alt-Hold- Barometer based flight mode to hold the drone at a particular altitude)

SSH-ing into our Linux drone

Compile our own firmware right from our drone (could even be flying while we are doing this!)

DroneKit and write some python scripts that will make our drone fly autonomous missions (without an RC controller!)

Will you need to buy drone parts to get value from this course?

While this course was designed for you to follow along with the drone build prescribed, 80% of the videos are not specific to a specific drone build. This means you can still extract extremely valuable knowledge from this course without needing to spend the money to buy the drone parts. Even without building a drone, you'll still learn about the hardware, design and build processes, and some best practices and maintenance for drone pilots.

What if you want to build a drone, but not the type used in this course?

This would work just fine, because there is even a section dedicated to illuminating the design process, which would allow you to design and find the parts for your own drone build. Most of the videos would still directly apply to your drone.

What about required tools to follow along in this course?

At minimum, you will need:

A soldering iron and solder (~$20)


Allen wrench set (~$10)

Raw drone components to build and maintain the drone ($400 to $500 depending on the quality of parts you choose to buy)

A drill and some drill bits would be helpful (but not required)
