Radios connect to each other (LED's solid), but cant connect on the computer? *resolved*

Started Dec 19, 2017 0 Replies

So, the manual I have states a solid green LED means that the two radios are connected to each other. On Mission planner, i've gone ahead and done the radio setup as well, and it's confirmed that its…Continue

Pure glider on ArduPlane?

Started Aug 17, 2017 0 Replies

I'm new to Arduplane, but is it possible to have an aircraft be a pure glider (no motor)? How would I set it up to work this way? I'll be sending a high altitude balloon up to film the eclipse this…Continue

Wiring issues?

So, my motors do not get any signal at all. They just "beep" to signify no signal being received. If i hook them up to my receiver they can calibrate, work, etc just fine.Currently I have the…Continue

PL8: Returning a flying wing from a High Altitude Balloon - first autonomous glide tests

So, I started this project 2 years ago. Not cutting my hair until i finish it.The High Altitude Balloon Return project aims to return a flying wing autonomously from a 100,000 feet. There's a lot of challenges associated with this. I tried to make my own flight controller in the beginning (Project log 1-6 to see this progress), now I'm using dronekit and Arduplane because someone with an IQ that isnt in the single digits told me I was being stubborn.Or, if you just want to see the flight test…See More

Project Log 6: Returning an autonomous glider from the stratosphere | Building a Flight Controller 2

Posted on July 25, 2018 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

On the sixth installment of my project log, I finally get some test flights off with the flight controller i started to make from an arduino 101.

Up until this point, we barely had the aircraft gliding. This week I decided to add some methods, and cruicial parts to the aircraft that make it behave more like an actual aircraft, and…

Our High Altitude Balloon (HAB) project aims to return the electronics on board a weather balloon autonomously instead of drifting away on a parachute. My Project Log series aims to provide short sweet and to the point updates to said project. Heres the most recent one:

Heres some background:
