About Me:

I've been an aviation enthusiast my entire life. I earned my pilot's license at the age of 17 and am now studying Aeronautical Engineering at the Royal Military College. I love all the parts of drone design: from airframe design to autopilot coding.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I wanted to design, build, program and (eventually) fly (if that's the right word to use) my own UAV. I know I'm jumping straight into the deep end, having only flown RTF electrics, but want to learn as much as I can in the process. So far I've designed, built and flown my airframe and coded a working autopilot script for it in X-Plane.

I'm getting closer and closer to being ready to test my UAV, but I still have one failure case nagging the back of my mind: what to do if the board resets in mid-air and clears the DCM matrix? I mean, I don't plan on having mid-air resets, but what…

"Hello everyone
I'm new to this hobby, and kind of jumping straight into the deep end, but I have some questions about what a section of your code does. I'm not very fluent in the C family (yet), but I haven't been able to find what the 'union…"
