I recently presented a brief overview of my current Arcticopter project and some of the underlying technology. I added some notes and uploaded the slides here. This slide got the most laughs, and there's a cautionary note at the end.
Nice slides! But the last one is shocking, be careful with it.
I also did the similar presentation for University conference. I'd like to share the scheme of APM which I made. It might be useful for someone. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28761563/scheme.jpg
Shocking but necessary slide at the end.
When I go flying to the park I look for a lonely place always but after some time people start arriving and placing closer and closer to the copter, they see it flying so stable and still in the air and get overconfident, not realizing that things can go really bad in a split of a second.
@Kirill: nice scheme but as far as I know temp and baro are digital (read by I2C), so no ADC for them.
Hey, that's me!
In your slide you mention Altitude Control as "To Do". Obviously you've already got that with APM. Did you mean something else?
I.S.: That's correct
I.S. and Chris, thanks! I'll correct that.
BTW, nice photo!
It's a good idea to use a portable table, like the one I have. It's convenient to put all the stuff on it rather than on the ground. And it prevents laptop, transmitter and so on from dust and sands and thus scratches.
Great set of slides, you should mark them as NSWE(Not Safe While Eating) the last slide is a great reminder to all the non prop (blade) removers out there why they should be removing them!
As for the use of the table, thats a great plan, I use my flight "tub" to get to the field and the set up on it:
Here's where people seem to be posting the scary pics:
and somebody posted this nice pool-noodle based prop holder which in addition to keeping props immobilized while working on a model keeps the blades from snagging during transport.
Here is corrected version of the scheme: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28761563/scheme_updated.jpg
Thanks again for noticing!
