Using 3 Frequencies to operate UAV

Started this discussion. Last reply by Toby Mills Jan 12, 2012. 1 Reply

Hi all,I'm currently using 3 different frequencies to operate my plane. 72 MHz FM RC radio, 900MHz Xbee and 2.4 GHz Video. This seems crazy. Perhaps someone could start thinking about building a…Continue

"Nice, I had a Cularis for 3 years. It served me well for FPV, APM and fun soaring missions. I decommissioned it last week to move some of the components to a trunk sized Mini Sky Hunter. Nice build. Let us know how this guy performs for you."

Robbie Edwards replied to turdsurfer's discussion Why no physically separate multicopter controllers and autopilots yet?
"I also agree that this is the future. Control on an MCU board with autopilot navigation and additional processing on a separate more powerful system running a full OS.  Think micro-controller based control board handling stabilization and other…"

"Robbie, I don't think there's any ArduBoat software per se. I was assuming it was just the ArduRover software, but with different usage instructions for boats. "

Autonomous sailing with Ardupilot

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 7:00pm 27 Comments



Thanks DIYDrones community! We at the Royal Military College of Canada used the Ardupilot software and ground station as a basis for programming our 2m autonomous wing-sailed trimaran. This made our lives much easier while building and programming the boat during the 3 month time frame before it competed in Sailbot 2010…
