A PX4 AR Drone is born 2nd post

Posted on March 12, 2013 at 1:58pm 8 Comments

Welcome back to my build log/experiences with this project. 

After playing around with and figuring out where to put the various bits I went on to add the XBee headers, powercable and 3 pin RX header to the PX4IOAR: 

At this point I will skip further as the assembly is well detailed in pictures on the PX4 website. I would add that…


A PX4 AR Drone is born

Sharing some pics etc from my PX4FMU/AR Drone build. 

I got the AR Drone carrier to be able to fly the PX4FMU inside to test small things whenever, plus the AR Drone airframe is very well suited to packed urban environments like where I live. 

I do also plan on using the PX4FMU for other airframes, but it seemed sensible to get all the software bits working the…

I have just recently gotten one of these from

And I was basically planning on using it as the hardware platform for my own integrated UAV controller.

So how is the TechFX Motion OSD IMU working out so far. Has most of the features I need, plus it has one of my favorite micros on it. Also I noticed you said you had some good Kalman algo's, info etc. I'm still struggling with Kalman's so I could use some good pointers here.

Thanks for the update. I actually was thinking about using it for my work where I need an easy upfront status display (NTSC) for our development vehicle which uses CAN for instrumentation (dspic has two CAN i/f's). I also need an IMU. This board seemed to come close for all that. I also have dspic tools and am familiar with it. All bonus points going for me on this board.

Hello, really need your help. Connected to the xbee 868 apm2.5, everything works fine, but after a while xbee stops working since 10% of the limit (10% duty cycle). Tell me please: how to implement an automatic reset every 5 minutes.
