About Me:

I'm a wannabe aerospace engineer. i've studied control theory, both classical, modern and nonlinear. I'm handy with Matlab/Simulink and have used it for various sub projects such as control systems simulation and real time estimation techniques.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I'm a wannabe aerospace engineer who wants to work on hardware. I'm interested in applying my knowledge i gained from school (control theory mostly, some estimation too) and putting it to the test with real hardware. Here are a few things I want to learn / fiddle with: -Understand the whole guidance, navigation and control loop from start to finish with everything in between. Key words: PID, gain scheduling, GPS+IMU navigation, kalman filtering, DCM + quaternion, math math and more math. -After i get the jist of the above stuff, I want to start applying some more advanced techniques: computer vision based navigation, on-the-fly trajectory / path planning, implementing non-linear robust control laws, using hardware-in-the-loop to test and verify that my guidance and control laws arent bogus and remain stable.

Hi all, i'm completely new here and wanted to get into DIY UAVs, first starting off simple by purchasing one of the full kitshttp://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/PurchaseI wont be doing anything crazy to begin with, just simple hovering tests…
