Hi Everyone,just want to highlight our most recent developments on PenguPilot, a GNU/Linux based Multi-Rotor UAV Autopilot.A Video with horizontal GPS position stabilization and vertical ultrasonic…Continue
Hi Everyone,I'm currently using Madgwick's popular filter for my own AHRS project. After some experimentation with sensors and adjusting the beta gain, I've noticed some unpredictable behavior of the…Continue
The video below shows a quadrotor following bilinear interpolated SRTM elevation data. Pitch, roll, yaw are controlled manually.
Barometer and elevation readings are zero'ed at start.
The baro setpoint is set to a safety distance of elevation + 7m.
There are basically three Linux processes involved in this: The GPS publisher passes…

We use the Odroid U3 to control a quad-rotor (no microcontroller-based flight control, just plain Linux control code). As a Linux distribution on the ODROID we use Gentoo, and of course our quadrotor natively compiles all of its software (kernel, userspace)
Please have a look at our first operating prototype:
