Camera Stabilzation using ArduIMU

Getting some nice results for aerial photography/video with a glider and a Sony HD pocket camera.LINKNow want to add stabilization with gyro-controlled servos.Then "poing" > the idea to use ArduIMU as the stabilization mechanism.Has anyone out there tried this?  Any other ideas?  See More

RC transmitter with telemetry

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 4:45pm 3 Comments

Here's a nicely priced Hitec 2.4 GHz transmitter with built-in telemetry. Perhaps an upgrade for our groundstation?

For now, the sensor is only for battery condition but the plan is to have more sensors. Perhaps we can use the data channel as-is..


Interesting new tri-copter

There is a big brother (6 rotors) and this mini version. Still in prototype stage but great performance and payload capability.
