First of all - I've maidened my hex yesterday and all I can say is - Thank you to all involved in this project.
I'm new to unmanned control and Arduino and coding but here goes.
My interest lies in a tank type (skid steer, twin drive, etc) base frame, I've been searching the net ( here and all over) for a while now and realized that people asking these type of questions usually does not get any or very little response accept maybe "good luck".
What I also realised is that 99% of what we need does lie in this projects coding somewhere - if I only knew where to look.
Here is what I think:
1) Using and arming of brushless esc's and motors - already in arducopter code
2) Mixing (like v-tail mix) - not sure if its supporded by arduplane, could be like ailerons or banking in arducopter.
With this I believe we could start building and the next could also be nice:
1) Mission planning - already in ardurover
2) Geofencing - already in arducopter
If anybody is busy with this or got it done please point me in the right direction.
