A new project with STM32F429I-Disco

I have decided to build a quad and work on some control algorithms using FreeRtos to understand well both quad dynamics and what can a real time operating system do in practice. I will try to explain every step i implemented.. project may take long due to work and some grad courses. i will use stm32f429I discovery board running FreeRtos as controller card and again st i-nemo sensor kit as orientation sensor. I will probably add gps, barometric pressure sensor and other sensors at later stages of the project. 

Here is my Controller candidate.. (too big?)

i may consider to design a new board using same processor.. if everything about software is ok 

and here is my orientation sensor

have a nice weekend...

I think size is ok, for development purpose. I am looking forward for documentation review

If you want a bit of a head start you could create a AP_HAL port for ArduPilot to FreeRTOS. I've thought that would be an interesting port for a while now. That would allow you to play around at the RTOS level, while getting all the rest of the flight stack ready made.

Cheers, Tridge

Hi Alican,

Maybe at look at this project could be helpfull:




(Taulabs is a branch of the OpenPilot Project which is also based on STM32F4)
