I Have A Dream: See flying my Drone from it Antarctica.
Dream of the meeting of timeless nature and technology.
I designed for that a Drone, equipped with a APM1 (Thank you DIYDrones).
I was on the Antarctica Peninsula,
As in my dream, my Drone fly….
Engine and ESC: HobbyKing
Electronic: APM1 + Original Motherboard (Alim and Elec distribution)
Frame: Original Design, All with carbon fiber.
RC : WBCommander = Original Design, Action Direct by Telemetry ( XBee-Pro 2.4GHz).
The Joysticks com from a cheaper TX of HobbyKing (~25$)
The little video of GoPro,
Simply awesome dream! Where can I checkout the go pro footage!?
No Code change to control Drone (APM1+Arducopter v210)
All code is in WBCommander (UC Arduino Mega + Soft Arduino V1)
Yes, all is controlled by Joystick over telemetry link (MAVLink 0.9)
It Work Great, and i can add many specifique control function !!!
Hey, did you have to do any code changes to support the swept back motor configuration? Nice custom controller too. Are you using the Joystick over telemetry link?
Go to Antarctica with a sailboat (16m), has to leave Ushuaya,
Go Into the Wild for 5 Weeks...
The Flight Time is around 17,5mn with Slow travelling and Power Batt = 5A 3S
How did you manage to get to Antarctica? How was the flightime?
Yes, The First Advantages is The Front,
The 2nd Advantages is The elegance, as a bird :)
Do you notice any advantages/disadvantage in having a frame that is not exactly a (+) shape?
Certainly it's easier to tell where the front is.
Love your video.
