The ArduCopter Evolution Team is opened to all the pilots who want to explore, develop and test new features added to the official release of the ArduCopter firmware.
Anyone who wants to share freely, with an open mind, some ideas and software improvements for the ArduCopter firmware is welcome here.
During the 3rd quarter of 2011, as a student, I have successfully followed the first online Machine Learning course teached by Prof Andrew Ng from the Stanford University. This was a very intense and exciting adventure and I have greatly improved my experience in this field of knowledge. I am very grateful to Prof Andrew Ng and his Machine Learning team from the Standford University.
Thanks DARPA we accept technology transfer from:

We thank Garett Oku for piloting and building our helicopter. This work was sup- ported in part by the DARPA Learning Locomotion program under contract number FA8650-05-C-7261. Adam Coates is supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship
I attempted Dr. Ng's Machine Learning course while also getting certification training for MS SharePoint 2010 Admin & Infrastructure design,, way too much overload... So I backed off machine learning, but soon enrolled in Autonomous Vehicle course. I have ST32F4 from Element 14 on its way, It maybe able to handle some of his AI?
Andrews team is amazing, Only a handful of pilots can fly as well as his AI
Testing ACM 2.4 Heli for legacy Raptor with my secret sauce..
Remzibi OSD with Call_Sign every two minuets,
Stabilized camera control with operator nudge (3-way switch controls mix mode to Ch 5 roll & Ch 6 tilt.
Controlled with TG-9x with FrSky TM module, &
3D/DGPS lock for Ublox.
Installed Atolic Deveopment Lite waiting for ST324F4...
Chopping at the bit... while I debug missing #if statement.
