This blog record is about using Carambola with Arducotper to get live telemetry data from quadcopter.
Carambola is low cost, open-source WiFi (21.5 dB / 2.4GHz) embeddable platform from 8devices. I have decided to use this board to control arducopter from computer. In order to have reliable link I have used two Carambolas. One as AP (on the quadcopter) other as Client (ground station). Mission planner connects to arducopter via bridge created by these boards.
Because article is pretty long I did not re-posted it here. Read full post here http://lukse.lt/uzrasai/2012-05-carambola-powered-quadcoper/
