Newb here trying to get into the DIY drones game. I am looking at the little home page -here by Chris Anderson and he says to buy one of two boards. The first board -here - says it is out of stock and costs $199. The second board -here - is in stock, but costs significantly more at $250. What are the differences between these two boards and are there other board solutions out there to consider?
I wanted to learn more about embedded systems and programming by designing my own autopilot, but I think this is too much work, so instead I am planning on modifying the ArduPilot code with my own controls algorithms for fun. I will get another Arduino kit and make some simple projects to get more experience in making circuits and whatnot with projects like an LED light cube & etc.
Thanks much for the help. Very nice website you guys got here!
complete new here. I am also tryingto get into the RC game. I am planning on builing a Hangar 9 ARF or the Nextstar select Hobax 17 ARF , both are gas engines. I would like to connect this APM auto pilot preferrably with the sona/colision avoidance and GPS and alitutude sensor. My question is, would this work? Will it fit inside either of these trainers?
How would I go about hooking and connecting this up step by step.
Thanks for yourtime and answers.
