  • Great Work

    Would you mind putting your source code on the web. I'm working on a similar project and it would really help me further (especially the part with the gyro sensors)
  • Congrats! Your vehicle looks wonderful!

    What was your method of attitude estimation? I'm currently doing research on using the QUEST algorithm from NASA, but it is far too slow for the ATMEGA128 I have it running on.

    What were the motor controllers? When I google "Hype 6A" I don't get any relevant information.
  • Very nice looking!

    How are those props working out for you? From what I've read in the past those 3-blade ones can be rather flimsy
  • nice, congratulationss
  • 3D Robotics
    Very nice! The airframe is beautiful--how did you make it?
