I'm happy to inform you that i have upload the VRIDE 0.0.3 Alpha Revision.
Inside this early version of our ide i put some example about the opportunity to use on MP32 a lot of Analog and digital sensor.
In this thread is possible to discuss about the experience on sensor , driver implementation , code example , performances…Continue
Hi, I've made a Quad X copter using KK Multicopter blue board v4.5 (ofcourse I waited for 15 days to receive the board after placing the order). But mine is not going up. Its rotating on the ground. I don't what the problem is.... I've tried and tweaked as much as I can do by referring many sites. Also build 4 frames. But in vain. Its been two weeks I'm trying to make it fly.

One of the best decisions we made was basing our autopilot system on Arduino (credit goes to Jordi for spotting its potential so early and selling me on it). The engineers all sniffed at it, complaining that it was just an 8-bit processor running at 16Mhz and could never compete with 32-bit ARM processors running at 70Mhz and faster. But what Jordi spotted was something more:…Continue

Fantastic project, which was 3D printed at Shapeways. Here's their blog post describing the whole thing. Check out the lovely snap fit with a twist-knob closure design.
Video of the week. Hands…
trying to help a developer (Ben Levitt) to track down a bug on my UavDevBoard system, it was hard to explain by email the strange behavior.
After he suggested me to try with a sound card oscilloscope, I decided to try something I was planning from sometime now : a soundcard oscilloscope.
I build a voltage divider to scale down PWM…Continue
here is the last news of my development.
I received my small 5dof imu, some new sample of the last 24bits integrated pressure sensor from intersema MS5706, I plug everything on my RC receiver and telemetry transmitter and look at what will work... Surprisingly .. everything...
I check the range out of my telemetry board with just a crap antenna, and it is…Continue
Got some high speed photographs of Marcy 1 spinning at flight speed, to see if the actuator & the wing did anything. A slow motion video cam would be nice.
well, that's an annoying thing to do ...!
But definitely rewarding.
My test bench was actually the arducopter arm, on which i mounted the prop to be balanced.
i hesitated how to balance them,…Continue
