AC 3.3 fly away... or maybe not?

Started Mar 16, 2016 0 Replies

Hi guys, in these days I've been flying with a beta version 3.4-dev (9a09a86b). The reason why I'm using it instead the released 3.3.3 is because I found it more "stable". As soon as I upgraded to…Continue

Hi guys, I have not followed the last release, so I got very upset when I updated my old, steady 3.2.1 Octa-Quad multirotor with the new 3.3.2. Of course I do realize that my system is kind of a…Continue

OpenCV Installation and Camera Calibration

A few years ago I struggled a lot to study and understand OpenCV, especially the calibration process. Now that I have just a little bit more the hang of it, I thought It might be helpful for people that are going to approach this incredible computer vision library starting from zero.The process of installing OpenCV on some single board computers is not as straightforward as "apt-get install...." and you have no other choice rather than compiling it from zero.The steps I followed are pretty much…See More

"I must miss something here, as "trajectory tracking", in Ardupilot,  is simply programming waypoints along the wished path. Or else ?"
