Dear Team , this is the last version of code that I implemented on Arducopter firmware. I ported the firmware on multiboard and now I'm working on APM . In this flight you can see Coaxial Hexa flight in acrobatic mode , In this test I don't use Magnetometer and GPS , but only gyro e accelerometer.…
I played with an Android phone and UAV Playground and ported some of my GCS/PFD code.
Setup - FlightGear flight simulator is controlled by UAVsim - UAVsim receives FlightGear telemetry data and sends it to an Android device via Bluetooth - Android device graphically displays the telemetry data - Android device uses text to speech to announce telemetry… Continue
I recently have had very bad luck with my dynam hawk sky as you can see by the amount of gorilla glue and duct tape. So far I have sliced the wing off by running into a field goal post at a football field, hit trees twice, and ran it full speed onto the top of the roof of my local high school...but glue and tape can solve anything :)...with the extra weight from the tape and the glue I decided to upgrade to two 400 speed microjet v3 motors and 2 20amp ESC's to power this beast. I hot… Continue
I have finished my Arduino based pulse width modulated (PWM) hot wire cutter controller. It allows precise USB or analog temperature control of a hot wire of length from 10cm to 2m for use with manual cutters or CNC based cutter. The PSU is extermal…
This is my first post here. Chris has kindly introduced my project in his post a month ago. I have years of experience with R/C but no experience with drones. I wonder how can I meet some of the people who post here and see their aircraft in action.
The photo is one of my smaller models, a 5 1/4 inch, 2 gram Geobat.
We released version 2 of our GPS board on flytron.com This new board including some design changes and a super capacitor (0.2F) for longer backup time. Backup time is 8 days with full charged capacitor on 5V supply voltage.
http://www.vimeo.com/13185002 Here is a project I've been working with for several days, and after 2 bluetooth modules and a Corona 2.4ghz exploded, I finally get the connection between my smartphone and a microchip pic plugged with a bluetooth module.
As my Corona transmitter died I used my Spektrum DX6i as transmitter via the trainer port.
The video show the man a little shakky, this is because I'm only sending commands at… Continue
"The FAA commissioned the Boeing subsidiary Insitu, based in
Bingen, Washington, and the New Jersey Air National Guard to begin investigating ways for civil aircraft to share their airspace with remotely piloted uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs)."
Hey everybody, me and my friend Chester would like to share our implementation of loading a waypoint into the ArduPilot in air. We use XBee radios, NewSoftSerial, and our own GCS written in Java (using Andrew Rapp's xbee-api) to do this. Our GCS was originally designed to facilitate a collision avoidance system for multiple UAVs (this is part of a research project at Auburn University), but we've added a small GUI to allow the user to type in their own waypoint to push to the…
Overview: This project is in the very early stage of development. I've got a couple ideas that I want to explore and need a suitable platform to work with. The following are some of the components I hope to use to assemble this platform.
Objective: The objective of this project is to design a very small boat ( roughly 1 meter LOA ) that will be capable of autonomously traveling a preset survey grid… Continue
