ArduPilot Mega sensor shield testing report II

Hi all,
This is the weekly report of ardupilot mega development :-)
We have developed the library for the DataFlash log memory. This function is really interesting, because we
would record the flights without the need to carry the laptop and telemetry all times... For example, for
testing the code I simply connected an small battery to the ArduPilot Mega, go outside to make…

Ardupilot Ground Station 2.6.4 A&B New Look

Hi All,

Been hanging around here for quite a while now and gleaning as much information as i can, maybe its time to give something back.

One of the biggest problems we found was that when in the field, its hard to get all the information where you need it, re-sizing all the windows, if you touch the pad, you can lose the window you want, always the GS, hard to find the pointer to bring it back, when you have one eye on the… Continue

Ardupilot roll functional flow diagram

I'm installing Ardupilot in the 6 foot wingspan electric Telemaster. As this is a significantly different airplane than the Easy Star I want to proceed slowly and carefully. If I can I am going to adjust and confirm PID settings, etc, one function (roll, climb and speed) at a time, starting with roll. I decided I needed to have a good idea how the roll software is implemented in Jordi's and Chris' marvellous software. So I embarked on developing the functional flow diagram shown here. It is… Continue

Using the G1 as GPS provider & telemetry for logging or transmitting to ground station

We are getting started with ArduPilot and a R/C car to slowly warm up to the autonomous stuff and getting acquainted with ArduPilot. So to keep costs low, we will use my rooted T-Mobile G1 to provide GPS coordinates, accelerometer data, to make a movie, transmit over WiFi or GPRS/UMTS etc. Because I'm lazy I'll just cross-post from xda-developers. The beauty of it is that the serial output from… Continue
