For all those who fly RPi multi-rotor =)

Hi. Everyone who want to build own RPi-based copter can use this open-source code: https://bitbucket.org/lastsurvivor/innode/overview :)
Not that far along, but doing a similar build.Raspberry Pi for the flight controller, code written in Go. Access the Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer(Compass), and PWM driver via the i2c bus.
Android app on tablet sends commands to the RPi via wifi.
Got my RPi camera, so, I'll add that too, I've used mjpg_streamer before in my RPi backup cam.
All moved into a new home and now Quad-FU is back online =)
We now have GPS guidance and Eflite Park 450 motors on hand made motor mounts.
Thank you, i`ll try.
Do you know any OpenSource software for RasPi-based copters?
Does everyone else heve any progress?
Sorry for the delay. I'm in the process of moving/unpacking at a new place.
Now a days we have an xbee pro for rf / controller input. In addition we use hostpad and connect to the quad's wifi hotspot.
For your camera you might like mjpg_streamer
You can use VLC on anything connected to the hotspot and stream your video.
Hi. I finished to build my copter yesterday. And i broked all propellers :)
I have the flight base now and can start integrate RasPI into my copter.
I will use WiFi for the communication and webcam for FPV.
Also i will use existing MultiWii for copter stabilization and basic control.
ReneeLov3, what do you use for the wireless connection?
Do have any progress with camera? I tried to stream it but i had errors.
So propeller upgrades will be in tomorrow. During my down time I worked with a couple of voltage regulators and found one with half the current draw and more built in protection over the NTE regulator previously used.
Also adding control buttons to operate the quad with or without a computer. Since its still running on WiFi control we will probably make an iPhone and Android remote control application (seems fun).
I'm also working on some dynamic PID control algorithms because as much fun as I have playing with PID gains =/ I much rather let the quad continuously monitor and adjust itself for maximum stability.. wish me luck.
