this is the video of first flight of Multipilot32 that use ArdupiratesNg32 rev. 2.01 firmware.
I ported to Multipilot the 8bit firmware , change all the library necessary to firmware and doing some small patch on original firmware.
At the moment i fly in stable mode + configuration with this PID (3.00 , 0.150 , 0.900)
As sensor i use Oilpan , in the firmware i don't yet activate GPS , BARO and Magnetometer , i doing some…Continue

Just in case you missed it in one of my other posts, joystick control is now working via my GCS. I need to write up a "proper" wiki page on how to use it, but here are the basics.
Download my GCS here: http://code.google.com/p/happykillmore-gcs/downloads/list
Edit your APM_Config.h file and add this:
#define ALLOW_RC_OVERRIDE ENABLED

The ITG3200 started its blog on good terms. Turns out there's no deadband, but you get a level of 8 bit quantization when reading the analog results in I2C burst mode.

Well, here is a general block diagram of the custom ground station.
It's planned to be integrated in a medium-sized aluminum case, easy to fold and expand on field, with easy transportation.
for the moment i have finished only one of the four systems - the voltage…Continue

Here a video of my Cularis UAV during a full autonomous flight mission under a flight plan with 7 waypoints (
Mission #19 done on april 2011)
The Cularis UAV autopilot setup is:
- Autopilot: Ardupilot (Atmega 328)@16MHZ + ArduIMU flat v2
- ardupilot v2.8 (JLN) + arduimu v1.8.3 (JLN)
Sensors: (arduIMU on…Continue
This video shows the result of modifying a T41 Thinkpad to give a full colour sunlight readable display:
Full credit for both the idea and the modification should go to Nic Schraudolph from the Canberra MakeHackVoid group. I just supplied the old thinkpad to modify when Nic suggested that this…Continue
Since I have started flying with wireless cameras and recording my flights on the ground hasn't worked out so well. First I tried recording video straight to my computer with the Diamond VC500 One-Touch video capture device $35 at Fry's, but when I would replay my video's they were very skippy as well as…Continue
It's just over a week away from Sparkfun's Autonomous Vehicle Competition, and they've just posted a course preview. It's terrifying! Randomly-placed barrels! Hoops! Time bonuses for doing impossible things!
The DIY Drones teams are going to try an unprecedented hat-trick this year: Place in all three categories--planes, multirotors and ground rovers--using the same autopilot hardware and…Continue
This is the Keychain Camera. It's $12 - $25 at Amazon.com and is a great way to record in flight video. It has a 4 gig memory card and 200mha LiPo battery. The battery will last about 45 mins, It weights 16 Grams with case and about 11 grams with casing removed. Takes great pics and video and very crash forgiving. The…Continue

After almost at year with a strange servo jitter that was taking all the fun out of my UAV hobby i finally found the source. A bad servo.
The jitter was intermittent and made and erratic +- 5 mm throws on the elevator or rudder even when i tried flying in "manual mode".
