today i upload last revision of ArducopterNG32 , I upload the code after my fly test doing tomorrow.
This is the video.
With this revision of code is possible to fly in acro e stable mode.
After the crash on yesterday I again rebuild the frame using new 12mm aluminium square pipe with same length of 14inch or 355mm with 10x4.7 props. Built the frame and mounted the motors and electronics. Reloaded the software with 4.5 + reboard firmware.
During the test it seems to be good. Trying to achieve a hover vehicle by adjusting the EPA and trims. Most of the the part did work well. But as soon as I finished testing I switched off the Tx thinking that I unarmed the…Continue
Well, to work in a spin stabilized mode, Marcy 2 would have to spin a
lot faster than a 3 channel coaxial copter can. Without spin
stabilization, a $40 Syma S107 or a $25 Sky Invader didn't matter
because either way, we needed another gyro to know heading. A 150
second flight time doesn't demand a very accurate gyro.
Mass produced Marcy 2's would use…

UPDATE: The article is now available online at www.memagazine.org. Happy reading!
If any of you are members of ASME, you will find that the April 2011 (Vol. 133, No. 4) edition of Mechanical Engineering Magazine has the feature article "Drones for Peace: Working in Teams to Fight Fires or Find Lost Children." (www.memagazine.org)
I would buy a new computer for my 3D Groundstation ... What do you think about the Commodore 64.
I put it in my wish list ;)
I'm testing a wireless wifi IP camera to see if it's possible to integrate in my UAV system.
Yes! I know analogue Wireless video is much easier and cheaper, but I think…Continue

Other than "you get what you paid for" Anyone have a reason Not to buy this pair?
My personal goal would be to use it as a learning tool, prepairing for adding telemetry to my projects. But it should be usefull too. Secondary use in some project around the house, ie halloween automation, laser guided water splasher (anti-cat crap in the yard device currently in planning…Continue

This story has a happy ending, and it's not just more evidence of how amazing the waterproof GoPro camera is.
I attended the Bay Area meetup last weekend. One interesting thing that Chris Anderson mentioned was his philosophy that it's often more important to make things that are easy to repair than it is to make things that can't break.
I almost immediately had an object lesson in this by crashing my quad. Two props were broken, so I put it in the car to take care of later. When I got it home, I noticed that one of the motor mounts was bent to an almost 45 degree angle. Fixing…Continue
