Turnigy T1000FC Fixed-wing Auto Pilot System With GPS and Return To Home

 

This little gem is great for unexperienced fixed-wing pilots and people who fly fpv. The T1000FC auto pilot system with GPS is an in-line flight stabilizing system that offers auto level, tilt angle limits and return to home functionality for conventional aircraft (fixed wing, delta, etc... excluding multicopters and heli's).

Key…

Arduino Autopilot for Boeing 737

Well, for a simulated 737 at least.  via Hackaday:

[Andrea] didn’t want to dig around with the clunky point-and-click interface in FSX, so he created a virtual autopilot with a 2×16 LCD display and an Arduino to interact and set the most common…

Firmware update: now it's flying!

Hi everyone!

First I would like to thanks to all the people that commented, see, and shared my work. I'm really happy you enjoyed it.

Now the important part. I've been very busy on the firmware and the flight software. The board is still the same :D. T he system is doing very well and the attitude autopilot is working great. Here is a video of the last…

DIY vario and head tracker

Hi,

I build a couple of DIY electronic devices from open source projects.

 

I thought those could be useful to someone here on DIYDrones and they deserve a little visibility here too.

They are based on Arduino Nano and very cheap to build.

In this video I'm using both for the first time, with my…

Eva: A new open source autopilot!

               

                Arduino is awesome, and the autopilots based on them are great. Not only do they support an incredible number of external devices, but also don’t scare away the novice developers. Easy programming and versatility are nice but the cost at which they come at is somewhat of a letdown.…
