Configure LEDs and beeper in Mission Planner

Hello community!

The beauty of open source is that if you don't like something, you can change it. So here I am showing you my last changes to both: Mission Planner and ArduCopter (in the future it could be moved to library to be used by all Ardu* projects).

Before I start I would like to…

Bixler fixed after last crash. First flight with GoPro attached.

Posted on October 4, 2012 at 3:00pm 3 Comments

As some of you might remember, I hit a tree on my first flight and broke a wing.

Thanks to Gorilla Glue and some carbon fiber reinforcements the Bixler is up and running. I put 3 small carbon rods to reinforce the wing.

After some flights I decided it's time to attach a GoPro to it.

I have …

Fighting with the wind with quadrocopter.

Posted on July 20, 2012 at 6:30am 4 Comments

After coming back from my honeymoon I finally found some time to get some real flights. 3 weeks ago I flew my copter for the first time but it was just a few minutes on a very low altitude in front of my block. Today I went to some open space. Unfortunately, the wind was very strong so learning changed into fighting with the wind. Still managed not to crash the…

Marooned,

     re the problems you're having compiling with optical flow, i'm pretty sure that the issue is local to your machine because it's all fine for me and even the auto tester is able to compile everything.  Could you check your libraries directory and make sure that SPI3 has appeared?  Maybe when you fetched you didn't fetch from the parent directory so you only updated the arducopter directory itself and not all the libraries..i'm not sure, it's a guess.
