Getting started with Robotics and microcontrollers

  • #1
I want to work on building a quadrotor or rover using Arduino/AVR. What is the best way to get started? Should I buy a kit with instructions? This is my first time venturing into robotics using microcontrollers. I am not sure if buying a kit is more useful (or maybe a specific kit produced by Arduino or Rasp Pi) as it may come with instruction or booklet to get started. This project would be a way for me to really incorporate system dynamics, physics and electronics engineering into practice.
I would eventually like to use Simulink and incorporate it to control the robot.

There are some websites dedicated to drone building and the associated software needed to control the drone one such example is:
