"The blimpduino looked nice. unfortunately it is in the middle of a rebuild hiatus. Inspired by the blimpduino and unable to find it anywhere, Ive been building up my own. Using quadcoptor sensors posed some weight and pinout problems but they free…"
Hi there,i would like to know if i could use the Arduino Deumilanove or the nano w/328 board for autopilot control on my blimp.The board should be able to drive 3 dc motors,hook up the XBees for wireless telemetry and other sensors. Please do recommend me one thats cheap and reliable(besides Ardupilot) and satisfies all the above.I'm new to arduino programming and i hope to kick start with some basics.See More
ive just bought the Ardupilot and the Xbee sheild kit(meant for Arduino inventors kit). I'm making a blimp that needs to be controlled autonomously through a ground station.
I am also not using the x,y and z sensors and also the…"
"okay guys..im confused here. im using the ardupilot for my blimp and am using the xbee wireless retail to tx motor commands from a groundstation/vicon system. so in this case i can just stick to batt power for my ardupilot as the rest of the onboard…"
"icic. how about the coursework? is it more theory based or project based? i read online that qut aerospace avionics students get a more project based kind of work.
how about the career prospects of students in the course? :)
"We mainly specialise on control systems of aircrafts/UAVs and the theory related to Aerospace systems like Aircraft Navigation , Systems Engineering (for documentation according to IATA standards) and the first 2 years of the course is primarily the…"
"yo bro. thanks for the reply man. nah i'm currently considering whether to accept qut offer. i applied for bachelor of engineering (aerospace avionics).
would like to know more about what you do as the year advances from year 1 onwards. :)"
"hey there. i saw your about me and i just wanna know more about the current course you're doing at QUT. i am considering whether to enter the aerospace avionics course at QUT.
hope to hear from you. thanks :)"
"i am actually building an autonomous blimp that has to navigate its way through an enclosed room and find its target and with a wireless camera ,it should be able to transmit info back to the ground station.
I am unsure if Blimpduino supports…"
