"I'm so tempted to push this one over the top.  They're at $44,625.  I can't really see needing more than 2 ATM, which would leave them $15 under their goal........"

Seeduino boards

I bought few of these about a month back. They are much lighter than the normal Arduino board due to the use of the small USB 2.0 header and surface mount chips. I'll weight both and post, but if you are looking to build a mikroquad, or anything where weight is an issue and you don't happen to be using the ArduPilot (which is already really optimized for size!) this is a good alternative. Oh, did I mention it adds two ADC pins to the normal arduino configuration? Really nice if you want to add… Continue

Mikroquad

Posted on December 31, 2008 at 8:30pm 3 Comments

Wow, I can't believe I missed this one. Someone has been working (HARD) on an Arduino based quad.

Their source was put up on the 21st of December

Looks like a great start. I need to get my planes finished so that I can build one of these too!

Wondering about adding altitude and attitude sensors

Posted on December 25, 2008 at 7:38am 7 Comments

With some simple sensors we could detect the pitch and altitude to make better decisions about altitude changes and what to do with them. I'm thinking 2 sensors from sparkfun would do the trick.

Hello Venom,

I'm curently working on a UAVP project and just found about mikroquad and you looking for the compability of ardupilot bord with mikroquad.
You seem to be very documented and I could need some help, please.
- do you think Mikroquad code can be uploaded on a ardupilot board?
- do you think ardupilot would support extra sensors for the MQ project (GPS, barometer)?
Thanks for your help,
