"I need some help. Correct me if I'm wrong, AeroCore 2 is just another Pixhawk like piece of hardware (able to run APM or PX4 stack) and Overo COM (able to run ROS or another linux based OS) interacts with AeroCore 2 through UART and SPI ports,…"
"I think it may be a modular design, a "divide and conquer" approach. UAV frame and propulsion simplified, then payload is an extension connected in a fancy way. A extremely low center of gravity ensure stability. CoG is so far from wings,…"
"Would be nice get LiDAR data stream and full fill it with IMU data such as pitch and roll + Sonar Range Sensor for Alt. in order to get a full 360 degree x ~45 vertical aperture point cloud, taking advantage of multicopters pitch & roll…"
"Laird, please don't get me wrong, I'm glad your team build this LiDAR almost RTF. Actually I was waiting for something like this. XV-11 LiDAR units are great, but requires a lot of work get this things working out properly.…"
"Nice work CSGShop, tell us about which MCU do you have? And I would like to know about your base firmware, which AHRS or fusion sensors algorithm are you using DCM, Kalman? SPI ouputs includes Raw data and AHRS Quaternion?"
"I found that if you increase AHRS_RP_P param from 0.1 to 0.4 (means ACC more weight in attitude estimation than gyros) mitigates this issue. With AHRS_RP_P = 0.1 APM went out of control during a long 28 degree turn, now in 0.4 I can take long turns…"
Last post I presented this homemade hexacopter. This is primarily a mechanical steadycam style motion compensation/smoothing system, the 2 servos (roll, pitch) engage and act as dampers to reduce oscillation and alter the "home" position to…
