I bought an Frsky DF 2.4Ghz Combo Pack and dismantled the transmitter package and built my own transmitter as shown.
Apart from the DFT 8-channel transmitter, the RC Tx/Rx unit has an own built board with 2 psoc1 mcu’s from Cypress for generating the ppm signal, reading the sticks position and BT pc communication.
Milling of pcb
A python program controls the settings of the RC Tx/Rx unit and displays the telemetry data
The different parts of the quadcopter are milled in plastic and aluminum. The flightcontroller is the wellknown KK2.0.
Recently I started working on convolutional neural networks (cnn) for obstacle avoidance. With the help of "DroNet" from ETH Zurich and the "Deep Learning for Computer Vision" book from Adrian Rosebrock, I managed to build my first cnn algorithm for obstacle avoidance. The cnn module is written in python, using a keras…Continue

This winter I rebuilt my XJ470: added a PiZero with a Picam. This PiZero functions as a companion computer with a python dronekit and a WiFi access point enabling a mavlinkbridge. Hence an android tablet, running Tower, can be connected to this WiFi access point for…Continue
For bench marking my own developed flight controller, I built a Quanum XJ470 drone with a DroPix (Arducopter/PixHawk) flight controller. Some additional features: esc AFRO 30A; motors: SunnySky 980 KV; props 10 x 4.5. My first testflight shows that the drone with the DroPix flies great.
