    The IMU version is not far behind Giles!
  • I am a 4th year mechanical engineer at NWU. I'm working on my final year project. The project mainly consists of building an airframe for an RC plane and the buying and integrating an autopilot system and an auto take off and landing control system. Can someone please help with sugestion for these systems. I have to stay within a buget of $1500 excluding the airframe. I am strongly considering the attopilot. But i have a few questions about the attopilot. Will it be able to integrate with an auto take off and landing system? How exactly does the switch over from auto to manual control work?
  • Someone should work out the Thermopile sensor --> AttoPilot comms (one wire notice) so people could use it with other things...
  • on site construction.....that kinda takes the D.I.Y. out of D.I.Y. Drones........
  • Very Cool Stuff, I have to save money ASAP to buy.....Orz

    Please post some information regarding the ground station software! Looks good!

    Actually Bill Premerlani's UAV devboard (see tab above) is an IMU-based autopilot and is just $299. Prices are coming down fast.
  • An excellent job developing and bringing such a complex and capable product to market!

    "for 800$ they could added an IMU at least..."
    ... and one kilo bananas.
    Sorry to hear that the crisis has hit so hard.
    Cheapest IMU-based autopilot so far: unav3500 around 3KUSD and this is for a reason.
    Try doing research to make your own and welcome again on the forum in 1 year or later:-)
