Channel 4 Motor Speed Problems

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tommy Neubauer Jul 20, 2012. 5 Replies

I have been having quite a few random problems with my arducopter. Mostly stemming from what ended in a pretty bad crash a couple months ago. My quad seems like it has wanted to immediately go to a…Continue

ACM Code question

From the way the motor test video looks we wont have to worry about burning out our APM any more by having the motor outs plugged in without battery? Is that correct? I remember it used to cause…Continue

GPS Accuracy

This is just something that has been bothering me lately. I will start at the very beginning. My quad flies great in stable mode, but I have one little problem. I only have 5 channels on my receiver…Continue

Man charged in plot to bomb Pentagon with model airplane

It looks to me that the sad day we all knew would eventually come has arrived. The first person that I have heard of plotting to use R/C planes to bomb the Pentagon and the Capital building. It appears he was planning to use some kind of autopilot given that they stated the plane was to be "GPS guided". Below is a link to the CNN page that has the details.

Books on Autonomous Robotics
