Joystick flying with ArduCopter
Awhile ago I promised a more postings and so here we go. I know that many of you have been waiting this fun to be true... Now it is.
One our friend came to visit today at jDrones and they wanted to see latest software and other improvements on the whole project so we went to our local flying area next to our office and started to play with our birds.
We tested different combinations from quads to hexas but most memorable moment for our guests was that when I started to fly without any RC controller. Just had Laptop, Joystick and XBee telemetry. Well what else you need?? :)
Ok I would not say that everyone should rush to it but this is a good start. We still need to solve several issues on failsafes and so on but we are close. All I can do is to give big hoooray to our development team on all the achievements that we have been done.
Video might be a bit shaky but so it the pilot (my second time to fly our hexas with joystick).
Have fun and we will be there......
