I am new in developing with Arduino. I bought an DFRduino MEGA 2560 and an URM37 V3.2 Ultrasonicsensor to get my first experience with this topic. After all I am able to let an LED shine when my hand is in a specific distance range in front of the ultrasonicsensor. Sure, it is a simple step for you, but I am glad about this first step.
My dream is to build an tricopter as the Terminator flying robots. I want that the tricopter move away when I am approaching from a side.
I found a project which is exactly the tricopter I want to build.
Does everyone know more about this copter? Both propeller in the front are able to turn, in contrast to an classic tricopter configuration. Is this an option witch the ArduPilot have already?
I have an DFRduino MEGA, is there a shield which I could use to extend the MEGA to an ArduPilot?
I want to extend my project step by step, but if I get an ArduPilot, then I have a complete system to build an Copter. Is it nonsensical to built an ArduPilot out of pieces? My wish is to build an understand step by step, but if the way to build this out of pieces is to difficult, then I get an complete ArduPilot.
I don't want to say that it is very easy to build an copter with an ArduPilot, but I think I step over so many steps.
I hope you could understand my problem/questions.
Please let me know your opinions.
