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…
While adding the AMP to the Shrike, we wanted to understand Flying Wings a little better and explore expos. We incrementally increased expose to 0%, 30%, and 60%, then flew the Raptor with the existing vertical stabilizer at 100%, 50%, and 0%.
