I was hoping I could get some answers to questions I have regarding building the control system for a quad-rotor air craft.
I have a spectrum DX5e transmitter and receiver combo and I have the quad-rotor built.
Now for the questions:
1. Is it possible to control a quad-rotor with just a receiver and four ESC on four Brushless motors?
2. If not, is it better to use a PIC microcontroller or can you use BasicStamp or the Arduino?
Note: the reason I ask is because I am familiar with programming Basic Stamp and getting better with C on the Arduino.
3. If not, does any one out there have a scematic drawing of a controller system using a PIC controller?
All I want is to play with the quad and build a Thunderbird 2 craft for fit over it.
I have checked all over the web and it seems that no one wants to give a step-by-step process of building a quad-rotor craft! I am not trying to compete with it, I just want to make one to fly around with it!!!!
Can any one help with the code if I need to use a PIC controller? I am just starting to learn how to program the PIC processors and need some help!!!
Thanks for any help you can give me!
