Hi John -- first of all I love your EE Times screenname -- I wish I'd thought of that myself.

Your book looks very interesting -- can you email me offline at max.maxfield@ubm.com

@Adam: Love it, Max!  That copter is inspiring, seems like my next project of choice!

Just today I got an update from the nanocopter Kickstarter project saying that they've achieved their first stretcg goal of $300,000 and that they are going to add a digital compass and barometer to the flight control board so the copter will be able to recognize its orientation and altitude.

As they say: "This will lead to a better flying experience for every backer and more possibilities and fun for the hackers."

Now they are heading onwards and upwards to additional stretch goals.

Flying hackers, eh?  Sounds like a scene from a horror movie!  

But in all seriousness, time to head over to Kickstarter and pledge!

I like the idea of buzzing the neighbors at night with interesting flashing LEDs :-)

One very interesting point is how they are building additional airframes using a 3D printer -- did you see that I recently purchased a $499 3D printer (see http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1319236)

It's sitting here in my office as we speak ... so once I become proficient with it, creating additional airframes for my nanocopter is something else I might play with :-)

I suggest you go through some basic tutorials on arduino.cc first. Then go to learn.adafruit.com and build some of those projects.

 

That and tronixstuff's book. Also Exploring Arduino by Jeremy Blum.
