pyXY - Synapse SM700 Dev Board May Be better than Xbee and seems cost effective
8 X 12 bit analogue inputs could do a RC controller without Arduino's
This Data Sheet details the SM700PC1 module, which…
This was a first test of modeling something in 3D using still images. The subject is a micro quad, 210mm from motor to motor. To make the model, 36 still images were taken from a 10MP DSLR and uploaded to Autodesk's 123D Catch application.
I first attempted to upload this to Hypr3D to do the same kind of modeling, but as you can see here…
This project has been blogged here almost a month ago. Now they are closer to their deadline ($105,345 needed). Recently they've provided many interesting updates on the…Continue
I've managed to get everything up and running again! This is my newish hexa from uDrones (I've decided to forgo a rant on that subject for now). After working around my PDB issue (still unsolved) and engaging in some…Continue
