Video of my latest quad

I've done some more work on the stability code in my Propeller-based quadrotor and gotten significantly better flight performance.  It still needs some tuning, but all my oscillation problems are gone.

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the info and update. Nothing like simplicity!

    Please see my comment concerning sensor orientation in relation to the quad roll and pitch axes on your other DIY Drones thread:



  • The amount of correction depends on how much breeze there is, and how close to level I can get it in the first place. If I do a good job of getting the initial level right I can often not touch the controls for several seconds. I've gone as long as 7 or 8.

    I'll post the code changes shortly - I wanted to make sure I had it right before doing so. :)

    Nice work. Looks good! Since you are just using the ITG-3200 gryo how much pilot input is required to keep it from drifting?

    Will you post updated code on the Parallax website?



  • Can you teach me to use my quadcopter to get chicks?
