"Well, as far as I see it having the video TX and cam in the same package would make it unusable. I need my onboard OSD to overlay the video first when needed. But still if you add this cam to any micro video tx you will have the lightest fpv system…"

"Cool stuff! Reading through it right now, it seems to give quite a bit of detail of the control setups also."

"Now all we need is a way to buy the thermopile head without the control logic :) perhaps D. Goedde will release his designs for the AttoPilot as a separate product.. *wishing* :) The all SMD is niiice."

"Wow, I wish they sold only the camera unit without the video TX. I am working also on a MAV type vehicle which will be very light and for which I am still looking for a camera unit. Smallest I've found are: ebay item: 300290018299 CMOS color…"

"The only one implementations I know of are the DMD LRS radio system but this is prolly not XBee (dmd.es) and the TechFX Motion OSD from thesiliconhorizon.com. I have ordered one and it is in transit, I cannot wait to start testing it with XBee 868…"

A PX4 AR Drone is born 2nd post

Posted on March 12, 2013 at 1:58pm 8 Comments

Welcome back to my build log/experiences with this project. 

After playing around with and figuring out where to put the various bits I went on to add the XBee headers, powercable and 3 pin RX header to the PX4IOAR: 

At this point I will skip further as the assembly is…

A PX4 AR Drone is born

Sharing some pics etc from my PX4FMU/AR Drone build. 

I got the AR Drone carrier to be able to fly the PX4FMU inside to test small things whenever, plus the AR Drone airframe is very well suited to packed urban environments like where I live. 

I do also plan on using the PX4FMU for other airframes, but…

Interesting as UAV controller/OSD: TechFX Motion OSD (with IMU)

Posted on February 10, 2009 at 11:00am 3 Comments

I have just recently gotten one of these from http://thesiliconhorizon.com/





And I was basically planning on using it as the hardware platform for my own integrated UAV controller.



The specs TechFX Motion OSD IMU:

* small 2"x2.5" size

* fast dsPIC 40 MIPS 80 Mhz MCU

* 3 axis accelerometer MMA7260Q with G selectable

* 3 axis Gyroscope of IDG300's

* MAX 7456 On screen display video overlay NTSC and PAL… Continue

So how is the TechFX Motion OSD IMU working out so far. Has most of the features I need, plus it has one of my favorite micros on it. Also I noticed you said you had some good Kalman algo's, info etc. I'm still struggling with Kalman's so I could use some good pointers here.

Thanks for the update. I actually was thinking about using it for my work where I need an easy upfront status display (NTSC) for our development vehicle which uses CAN for instrumentation (dspic has two CAN i/f's). I also need an IMU. This board seemed to come close for all that. I also have dspic tools and am familiar with it. All bonus points going for me on this board.

Hello, really need your help. Connected to the xbee 868 apm2.5, everything works fine, but after a while xbee stops working since 10% of the limit (10% duty cycle). Tell me please: how to implement an automatic reset every 5 minutes.
