"heheh, thank you very much! It's great to hear that it works both as a controller, but also a good example of using a couple modules... I generally tend to do much more complicated things, so the simplicity of the Arduino and building some of these…"
A couple months back someone posted a pretty cool controller they had built which used a wireless link to feed gyro data from a remote handheld device to a Alexmos/Basecam gimbal controller... It was obviously targeted at the higher end film-maker…
"Yeah, this isn't really useful for FPV at all, but if you're using your drone to shoot video close to where you are (which is typically my case), then the range is more than enough. In those cases, toss another RX and hobby remote in someones…"
I just finished making a tutorial on how to build a Arduino gamepad-based controller for any of the AlexMos-based gimbals out there with Bluetooth. The build itself is super-easy to do, probably taking about an hour or so, and the parts can be had…
"Yeah, I agree with Foxzilla - I was ready to buy until I hit cloud services. As a developer, I want to communicate as directly to the device as possible, and I don't want to use some 3rd party service that if it shuts down at some point, I've got a…"
"Cool - I just backed it... The only other thing I would consider would be how you're doing power - in a perfect world, there would be some way to select between a 5v/gnd in or it powering via USB. Not sure why you've got a USB data hookup AND…"
"RS232 isn't a plus for me, but it might be for other people - on the computer side I'd just use the USB interface, which I imagine is just SPP, right? As far as the physical connection for SPI, it doesn't matter to me... The only 'nice' feature…"
"And it would be nice to actually see some live video showing your prototype doing something... Show your app running on the computer, and the device, and move things around in front of it showing how well it does at detection, etc."
"Looks interesting, the price is attractive as well - I have one concern and one dealbreaker for me... The concern I would have is that when I used those Sharp sensors in the past, I had problems with them in sunlight although they worked fine…"
"This video illustrates one of the things I absolutely hate about these kinds of presentations. I can stream 1080p at a wide variety of datarates - just because the output is 1080p doesn't mean anything. Same with 4k TV, just because the TV has 4x…"
"The reason it didn't hit the waypoints is because he selected 'Adaptive' for the path - in which case it does a spline-ish path. It doesn't give you any control over the control points of the spline (if it is one), so it's probably just some kind…"
