AR Drone weights The drone has the equivalent of a "Black Box" built in. When the drone is submitted to Parrot on a warantee issue, the first thing they do is pull the last 30 seconds of flight data and video from the main board for, well whatever The drone mainboard has a power buffer. This makes hot-swapping batteries a plus, no need to reconnect wifi etc. The reason the drone only spins up 50% for two seconds before going on lift spin is if the drone spins to full liftoff rpm right off, the teeth of the large plastic gear would be milled (shaved) off by the small brass drive gear. The prop axles are case hardened, that means that they will bend, but will snap in half if you try to straighten them. Believe it or not, you can take a picture of your drone while it's in hover mode, easy. IF you remove all the props and gears, mark them as to which spar they went on. Flying the drone over grass or weeds will give the drone mixed altitude data. In hover mode, the drone moves an incredible amount of air.

Overview What is OpenPilot all about? The project aims to create an Open Source Auto Pilot controller, of a very high quality, for unmanned aerial platforms. OpenPilot has an emphasis on ease of use and the project aims to offer a level of performance that means it can be adopted for both the hobbyist and also for more serious work. The OpenPilot project was founded in late 2009, and it is has grown rapidly since then with a multitude of contributors to the codebase and tens of thousands of users from all over the world. The OpenPilot project has been the heart of flying robots that have been used for search and rescue missions along with numerous videography missions by TV shows and movies. On this page: This is a non-profit project of the OpenPilot Foundation This is a project using only volunteer personnel who have donated enormous amounts of time, money and effort. Goals of the project Full free development tools for ARM. Current Status of the Project Core products Feature & Specifications Table

Goût d'idées PIXHAWK Research Project - ETH PIXHAWK: MAV Computer Vision Kuratas : le Metal Gear en vrai Le fantasme du mecha est très répandu au Japon, et aujourd’hui, il est en passe de se réaliser. Suidobashi Heavy Industry a en effet présenté lors d’un salon à Tokyo son nouveau robot : Le Kuratas. Celui-ci est un mecha, un vrai, comme le Metal Gear. Mesurant 4 mètres de haut et faisant 4 tonnes, cette arme est capable de se déplacer sur ses jambes et d’accueillir un humain en son sein pour diverses opérations. Grâce à un système de réalité augmentée, le pilote peut viser automatiquement un ennemi avec sa gatling capable de tirer 6000 balles par minute. Pour tirer, le pilote n’a qu’à… sourire. Enfin, notez que ce robot peut également être contrôlé par un smartphone connecté à la 3G, et qu’il coûte la bagatelle d’un million de dollars.

RC Quadrotor Helicopter This project is a RC quadrotor helicopter (quadrocopter, quadcopter, quadricopter, etc). It's a RC helicopter that uses 4 rotors. Watch it in 720p You need some pre-requisite skills: How to use Arduino, enough to get started Soldering, wiring, basic electronic skills Basic hand tool operation A quadrotor helicopter flies with 4 spinning propellers on a + shaped frame. When one rotor spins faster than the rotor on the opposing side, the faster side will have more lift, and thus the helicopter will tilt. The propellers also need to be in counter-rotating pairs, two spin clockwise and two spin counter-clockwise. We will be building a flight controller circuit that contains an accelerometer and gyroscope sensor so that a microcontroller can detect undesired changes in the helicopter's angle, and adjust each rotor's speed accordingly to counter the variation. The flight controller is a completely open source circuit. This helicopter will use four brushless motors. Summary of Downloads:
