"I've been using the Ardupilot with Arduino 0018 version code. This allows you to use attach more than 2 servos using servo.attach and writeMicroseconds commands. I've tested it with 3 outputs but 4 should work fine.
"gr8 2 hear from you Dr. Mike
Sounds like you have had quite the adventure with this design. Look forward to hearing more about your cam-board
Did you reprogram ArduIMU to control servos directly or are you taking the output and feeding them to…"
"Not a big expert but I'm testing a few bits and pieces.
I use the Range Video stuff and it works fairly well. I still use XBEE telemetry because, even with the OSD, you can get out of range quite easily.
I also send up a Sony MHS-PM1…"
We have a gimbal camera mounted beneath said airframe, with a ArduIMU mounted at the top of the gimbal itself.
Doing it this way has rendered allot of computations irrelevant, so that when the aircraft rolls or pitches,…"
Getting some nice results for aerial photography/video with a glider and a Sony HD pocket camera.LINKNow want to add stabilization with gyro-controlled servos.Then "poing" > the idea to use ArduIMU as the stabilization mechanism.Has anyone out there tried this? Any other ideas? See More
"This kind of solution seems to make little sense here in North America but in the developing world or war torn countries it may not be a bad fit.
Yes, it's easy to envision cell phone or even satellite comms as the appropriate tech - mind you,…"
"This is nice. The old 2.6 Autolaunch would drift depending on your tuning.
Lemme get this straight - you are keeping roll@0, pitch@whatever and course@ launch value until you attain the required height?"
