Apologies for disappearing for such a long time; we have been discussing and figuring our way around how to do this. It took us a lot more time than we estimated, but we are almost ready to release our autopilot, and these are the things that we plan to provide along with the autopilot:







Hardware Specifications


Eva Autopilot


ARM920T Processor.

Detailed Specs:


Supports fixed-wing crafts, multicopters, helicopters, ground rovers and boats.





Bi-directional transmitter


433/915 MHz


Bi-directional receiver


433/915 MHz




Power module, Flight Status LED, USB/COM connector



Software Specifications


Eva code




Communication protocol




Extended Kalman filter module

Object file (*.o)


Will be gradually open sourced.

Ground Control Station (iOS)


Manual flight, waypoints, target locks, Automatic take-off, automatic landing, OSD


The above hardware will be sold at cost to the early participants of the Eva project! If you are interested, feel free to get in touch with me!


So to just keep you guys updated, we have managed to incorporate RC Touch with Eva, which is basically an open sourced ground control station for iOS. RC Touch allows manual flights and autonomous flights. It has functions such as one-touch take off and one-touch landings. It supports waypoint missions, target locks, tracking and many other functionalities already. Aircrafts can be controlled with the iPad/iPhone manually as well.


We are also currently in the process of making our website and getting more information online. We hope that by the end of this week we will have the code all set and ready to be downloaded from GitHub!

Once again, we have had some setbacks with the telemetry, but the project is still very much alive. The software code is already up (it will undergo many changes, obviously) on GitHub! https://github.com/EvaPilot/Eva

"the project is still very much alive" - umm, last update on DIYD/github is 6 months old.

Did you sold any hardware? Code looks abandoned...
