What could be more fun than hacking an RTF quadcopter to fly with your own custom firmware? How about hacking with your own DIY Arduino-compatible 32-bit flight controller? This tutorial shows how I did it. Advantages of using this controller include:
- Access to the huge selection of Arduino-compatible add-on sensors (distance, optical flow, ...)
- Use of the high-accuarcy SENtral Sensor Fusion IMU, freeing up computation cycles for other tasks.
- 3.3V signal levels, for adapter-free interfacing with Raspberry Pi and other single-board computers.
