Can the APM work on a canard fixed wing?I've tried searching for people who used the APM on a canard but can't seem to find much.I'm guessing it won't be a problem but I want to make sure.ThanksContinue

"Hi Randy, thanks for the detailed response!  Yes i am a developer, but haven't yet got any experience working on ArduCopter etc, so far just DroneKit.  I'll take a look at HIL_GPS, that sounds promising. I'm currently using…"

"Alex, For #1, no. still not implemented. For #2, someone is working on this so I think this could happen soon-ish.  I guess you're a developer so if you're happy writing code here's some advice from Tridge and I. For now sending…"

"Hi Randy, I've read about VISION_POSITION_ESTIMATE, has it been implemented in Arducopter at all?  It sounds like you're saying it hasn't, I wanted to check if I understood correctly, or if anything had changed since 2015."

"@Bim  I have a similar situation.  I'm trying to fly an quad indoors with an Optical Flow sensor (PX4Flow) and a Rangefinder (LIDAR Lite) using the 3.3RC10 firmware.  I'm able to takeoff in Loiter mode (which, from what I…"

"Bim, I think option #3 is the most viable then.  That leaves the flight controller responsible for the velocity estimation. Dronekit is in Python (and other languages) so if you're comfortable with that you could use it for the companion…"

"Thank you for the reply Randy. Looks like there is no easy way for a C/C++ illiterate then, huh :) 1. I'd prefer the autopilot be responsible for velocity estimation, I'm guessing that if the companion computer would do that it'd add…"

Bim commented on Simon D. Levy's blog post ODROID + Flip32 Mini Quadcopter, Part II: Mounting and Flying the ODROID
"Ouch, that looks painful.. May I ask how did you control the FCU with the ODROID? Did you send 'RC override' messages? By the way, Hard Kernel are selling the ODROID XU4, which is a bit bigger than the Raspberry Pi but much more powerful."

"Bim, There are three possible solutions I think: 1. implement a angular controller in Guided mode to allow the companion computer to more directly control the vehicle's lean angles.  The companion computer would be responsible for…"

Indoor navigation with ArduCopter

Hello everyone,I want to mount a Raspberry Pi and a camera module on my ArduCopter powered drone and have computer vision guide the drone's movement. Flying will be perform indoors so GPS isn't an option.I'd like my computer vision code to look for a target and send the positional errors to ArduCopter, generating the positional errors isn't an issue - passing them to ArduCopter is.I tried working with DroneAPI and I can get data from the drone and guide it using RC Override commands, however…See More
