Here is a link to the UAVDevBoard page.
First of all, thanks to Peter Hollands, who produced the above picture of a helical flight trajectory from one of his HILSIM test flights of the latest version of fixed wing flight controls for the open source MatrixPilot project, also known as the UAVDevBoard. For the last year or so, Peter has been helping me…Continue
The above flight track highlights the performance of the latest version of the navigation algorithms in MatrixPilot. Flight tracks are from a flight that Peter Hollands conducted. (Thank you, Peter.) The red and the green tracks represent flight segments in opposite directions between the same pair of waypoints. The tracks are nearly perfect straight lines 243 meters long, with…Continue
I have recently performed flight tests on a major change in the way acceleration is accounted for in performing roll-pitch drift compensation from accelerometer measurements. The theory behind the idea was recently published in a…Continue
Presently I am doing work on multicopter modeling and control. One topic of interest to me is how can the tilt dynamic model of a multicopter be accurately determined from flight data, without disabling the controls or injecting any sort of intrusive signals. It turns out it can be done from normal flight data using a few basic concepts from signal…Continue
