In the beginning of 2014, Hassan Bouchiba and I decided to make a quadcopter from scratch as a hobbyist robotics project.

Application: the ThugDrone
Now that the drone was up and flying, my good friend Adrien Rahier came to me with the idea to use it as an aerial graffiti platform.
We actuated a spray can with a servo-motor controlled remotely, and mounted it with a rotating joint on the quadcopter.
The drone had to be able to automatically stay still against a wall.
Here is the result.
