About Me:

I like quadcoters

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I am using UAV's for science fair. Easier said then done considering my negligible R/C experience.

"This is a really interesting design. How is the fuselage made?"

Mamoon Syed replied to Artur Count's discussion Generate remote control commands from Arduino in Learning to program the Ardupilot Mega
"I suggest you take a look at DroneKit. It offers location control of the drone based on GPS coordinates and based off of desired acceleration readings from the IMU. All communication is done via telemetry however. http://dronekit.io/"

Mamoon Syed commented on Nick Arsov's blog post Ardupilot/PX4 communities : DIY hardware Innovation is still alive and well - the new XRacer V1.0
"@Felix, I'm flying octas quite heavily these days, hence my issues with the CAN bus, however I was not aware that it had PM out. Thanks for the info."

Mamoon Syed replied to Michael W.'s discussion Have tried every PID and can't get severe Oscillation to stop
"Had a similar problem when I was starting up, but in my case I had the speed controls connected to the incorrect PWM output on the PDB. I'd recommend looking into that as well."

"I really REALLY like the look of this board but a seriously prohibiting factor is going to be the premium of CAN integration on the ESC side of things. Even if the board was reasonably priced, I can't see myself spending north of $200 on speed…"

Mamoon Syed commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Construction drone company uses Pixhawk-powered tech
"I like the way they implemented battery swapping, but my only qualm is that the drone seems to power down completely during the swap. I think it would be neat if you had an intermediate power source that powered the drone while the battery was being…"

Mamoon Syed replied to Umut TEKİN's discussion Quadcopter X in ArduCopter User Group
"I had a similar problem once upon a time, make sure your motor connections are correct (pin 1 on APM correspond to motor 1 on quad, etc.)"

Mamoon Syed commented on Paul Bupe's blog post Autonomous UAV Clustering Network
"This is really cool, but I have one question: can you command other formations of the drones currently instead of the 7-drone hexagonal formations that you displayed here?"

Mamoon Syed commented on Eric Compas's blog post APM response to catastrophic air frame/wing failure?
"I think it would be cool if someone found a way to integrate a fiber Bragg grating sensor into the airframe and somehow incorporate that into the APM code. I don't imagine it would be terribly difficult (aside from the costs involved), and could…"

Mamoon Syed commented on Applied Aeronautics's blog post Applied Aeronautics - Albatross Design Contest
"Last day, so I figured I'd give it another shot. Didn't like my old design very much so I figured I'd tone it down a bit (iffy on the whole visibility thing though). This is my second entry, so if that's against the rules, feel free to disqualify…"
