I was recently fiddling around the code for a while and decided to create a tutorial out of it so that others may find it useful. If I would have known this knowledge long back, I am sure I would have saved a lot of time since then! I find lot
Came across this video. This is taken by MotherboardTV and features drone applications by military and hobbyists spanning from Europe to Middle east to USA. It talks head-on about the issues with drones and niceties of having one by your side
In my research project I am asked to specify with metrics for platform performance i.e. 'how good' is the platform that I am using as compared to other platforms available in the market (APM:Copter, AR.Drone, HK KK, MicroKopter, etc), in te
This is my third crash (repeating the 'exact' same scenario deliberately) in the past two days. I have found the core problem of the issue -> Using camera (RPi camera module) on-board the flight wipes out GPS signal 'entirely'.
I want to know if someone has achieved something like this with the quadcopter 'at a waypoint' before moving to the next waypoint. '0' in the figure below indicates the waypoint and adjacent curves are path the quad circles around this waypoi
