"Mirko & Patrick,
Thank you for your time to answer the questions that I had. Patrick, your last paragraph really tied it all together for me. Makes a lot of sense after that, because that of course is a huge advantage in itself to…"
That sounds very interesting :-) , keep us updated.
And this is showing the neccessity of having an affordable , entry level Linux based polyvalent board that can be transformed in a full fledge FC for beginners. If we…"
I have BBCore + My own Baseboard (built for 9€) + sensors (sonar+pressure+imu+optical flow) + 2.4GhzModule (with RSSI) for only 120€. I will share some pictures later.
BBCore should be used with customized…"
In order to build a Flight Controler with the BBcore you would need:
- BBCore + Baseboard : 165$
- Sensor Cape (Like Mirko's BBBMini Cape): 50$
- Wifi : 10$
Total Price: 225 $
I am just trying to…"
I think BBCore is best than BBBlue, BBCore is samall and it can be optimized. (http://beaglecore.com/)
Adding sensors (like IMU) to the main board is not good, we should have hardward layer (Sensors, RF, ...)
The good thing is the OSD335x which…"
"lol I think he'll be giving us a blood sample if we turn up with that thing, if he wants to or not! :-)
But I do fancy seeing a two wheeled balancing quad. The BBBlue would be the ideal candidate for a small version of it. The idea would…"
"Yeah JB ,
I can see your QuadPlane gently moving on its balancing wheels and slowly getting closer to Joe so he can safely drop its blood sample and earn your team some extra points on the next OutBack Challenge ;-)"
I think the unique think of the BeagleBone Blue is that it is single board solution for this small price. Technically the advantage of using the firmware I have written for the PRUs of the BeagleBone (internal PWM generation) is, that you…"
"it's very challenging to design a flight controller hardware unlike a rover hardware or a ground based machine. whosoever designs a flight controller hardware or software is a genius. BBB is a natural improvement since it incorporates more…"
There is no real difference if we look at the signals, but with the BBB its all done internally with no additional components. The BBB has been designed as a general purpose ARM based system with lots of IO. The configuration can…"
What are the advantages of the ppm to pwm conversions being done internally on the bbb? I am curious to know if there are any real advantages to this system. I'm not advocating for one or the other, just trying to learn as much as…"
