"Has anyone calculated how much force that is needed to rotate the bearing and potentiometer? that force should be equal to the moment that your windvane produce of the error angle. So if we use a naca 0010 airfoil as the windvane, we know the cm…"

Integration of new sensors into arduPilot

We are a small startup company located in Norway, reaching out to the community here instead in hope that we can give something back to community instead of hiring a software engineer.We need a logger for air and imu data and hence we have chosen the Pixracer and the arduplane software, however we also need to log forces coming from 5 strain gauges(digital spi), so the task will be to simply integrate these into the opensource code as a new sensor. We have a arduino program(running on the nano)…See More

Kim Skatun commented on Nicholas Witham's blog post Pixracer (actually a counterfeit): Now available from Hobbyking!
"Where can I buy not a clone with a nice case like the one at hobbyking? I would prefer not to support hobbyking... I am gonna use it as a datalogger, hence I need a case."

Paraglider, with its own pwm regulator

Hi,I am currently making a paraglider(Several cons and pros for that approach, but I wanted todo something different:) I want to use pixhawk to control it. So the paraglider is like a plane with rudder,elevator and motor. My problem is that the rudder is operated by a brushless motor with a gearbox and a potentiometer as feedback. So I could attach an arduino nano read in the pwm signal from pixhawk and potentiometer and generate a modified pwm out. However I would rather modify the arduplane…See More

Kim Skatun commented on Charles Blouin's blog post Brushless Motor Dynamometer from RCbenchmark
"Great project, i had similiar sketches a while back. However the force and motor chacteristic is highly dependen of airflow, so my idea was to guide the airflow back in front of propeller to simulate real conditions."
