OK nerds, worlds first aerial video from an Autocross, more vids in my channel.
I had a "rider" helping me aim for this one. Please note no pedestrians, course workers or cats were harmed during the filming of these videos. Be safe and ask permission... I barely got permission probably helps that I've been running with these guys for about 13 years now. Autocross insurance would not cover an accident from a flying lawn mower. And yes, the course was hella dirty, we have had pop up showers every day this last week.... We were in the first run group and it was mad slick. PS, bragging now, this was my work assignment, its good to know people. :-)

Variable speed in stead of collective pitch? That's kind of really fantastic..

Anyone else played with GPS on their crafts yet?

I got my antenna and other parts a few days ago and recently started working on getting it configured. I'm still using a 328 as a main flight micro-controller so I have a few more hoops to jump through than you 2560 guys with all your fancy extra serial ports and I/O pins.

Anyway I took a screenshot of the first test on the module.


*stock configuration*

You can see the path it took while finding satelites before it made the cluster over my bedroom in the house to the right. I'd say not bad for being indoors and some say my house is made of lead when it comes to getting signal from within.




This thing has been a little champ for as much punishment its parts have been through and the quick n dirty method it was built with.

My APM 2.5+ has GPS support, but I didn't buy it. I feel I should have though, as 3DR has revised all there crap and discontinued the GPS my unit is preconfigured for now that they released the 2.6.

I doubt that would be an issue, you're still atmega 2560 based so its probably plug and play for you. I have to parse the data through a secondary micro to convert it to I2C so I can piggyback it onto my IMU sensor board. You should just have to plug it into a spare serial port.

Im waiting for the Openpilot Revo.

They released it early this year, but only a handful at a time.

People think its made of gold with the prices lately.


the kickstarter was about $200-$215 shipped.
people are asking $475 plus. Its stupid.
I missed the one last week for $285

You got it backwards.

Multicopters are all variable speed, and fixed pitch. Thats the beauty. less moving parts.

Someone just made one with constant speed, and variable pitch. Way more complicated, but = inverted flight, and a whole new world of stunts.
