this is my first post on this forum: I just registered after having seen some cool videos around.
I'm a web developer by day, the maintainer of a pretty popular (at least in the .NET world) opensource project. But lately I'm starting to play around with Arduino.
What I would like to do is building a quadcopter and helping out developing the code that makes it fly :)
I had a look at (some) of the 96 pages of comments of the original announcement and the google code project site, but I haven't understood which is the status of the project:
is the feature list on http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/ the list of features available with the current version of the code? Or are they the features that will be available in the final release?
If the former, which of them are available and at which point of the roadmap is the development?
Then, speaking about the frame. I read that you are building a kit: is it available already or can I try building something myself, following the instructions on google code for the hw + sw part and the ones on http://www.aeroquad.com/content.php?115 for building the frame?
I'd really help with the development of the navigation, but first I have to build a working version of it :)
