Tracking - happykillmore-gcs - HappyKillmore's Ground Control Station Compatible with HK GCS 1.1.32 and newer. NOTE: Use this at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any damage to your plane or equipment by using this feature. General Comments Your GPS has a 1.5 - 2.0 second lag! This tracker will actually be pointing to where your plane was 2 seconds take care a close range and high speeds. The antenna tracker data will not start to flow (for PanTilt and Heading output types) until a home location has been set and the connect button is clicked on the tracking tab. The purpose of this project was to create a cheap, simple, off-the-shelf solution for antenna tracking. If you want to buy all the components, you'll need a soldering iron, an ArduPilot original ( some straight headers ( and 2 servos. Output Types Current Output Format: !!! Sample Source Code for this output mode can be found in the ArduTracker source for the original ArduPilot. Current Output Format: !!!

VRBRAIN | Autopilot system by ArduPilot The ArduPilot Project The ArduPilot project is a family of open source autopilots based on the Arduino open source computing platform. It consists of a choice of ArduPilot Mega (APM) electronics and a range of free software versions for different vehicles APM 2.6 is a pro-quality IMU autopilot based on the Arduino Mega platform, which can turn any RC vehicle into a fully autonomous Unmanned Aerial (or Ground) Vehicle. You can buy APM 2.5 for $159 ($240 with advanced GPS module) here. Features include: Free open source firmware supports planes, multicopters (quads, hex, oct, etc), helicopters and ground rovers! Hardware includes the following: 3-axis gyros3-axis accelerometers3-axis magnetometerBarometric pressure sensor for altitude5 or 10Hz GPS module4 Mb of onboard datalogging memory.

Self assembled multi-copter ensured networked flight control | Robots Insider Researchers of Zurich ETH have succeeded to create self-assembling copter robots. These tiny flying vehicles can fly singularly, then meet their peer copters in the air, and compose a coordinating composite flying object. After finishing the task, they disengage themselves and come back on the ground singularly. These DFA (Distributed-Flight-Array) robots come smaller sized and designed to go any direction so that it becomes easy to re-align them whenever it is necessary. They are equipped with a magnet in their chassis, which allows them to be connected easily. They have gyroscope, infrared altitude sensor, on-board microcomputer and battery. These tiny copters are unique in terms of flying behavior. Scientists of the ETH are now trying to give these DFA a full autonomous power. Source : Wired Magazine

common-APM 2.5 and 2.6 Overview | ArduCopter Table of Contents APM 2.5 and 2.6 Overview The APM 2.5 board requires no assembly, and is ready for firmware. ***Click and drag the image above to spin it! This page gives you a look under the hood, and goes into more detail about the design of this board. The APM 2.5 has some improvements over the APM 2.0, but they both have a very similar layout and function. APM 2.6 is a revision of the APM that makes use of an external magnetometer (compass).The APM 2.6 has no on board compass, and is optimized for vehicles where the compass should be placed as far from power and motor sources as possible to avoid magnetic interference.APM 2.6 is designed to be used with the 3DR GPS uBlox LEA-6 with Compass module.The GPS/Compass module may be mounted further from noise sources than the APM itself.APM 2.6 requires a GPS unit with an on board compass for full autonomy.For information on installing a 3DR GPS uBlox LEA-6 with Compass, visit (Here!).

I only found these Guides recently, but will work immediately at editing and updating them. Michael Comment by francoi... Michael Thanks. Francois Comment by project member, Aug 1, 2012 Happy you like these, I wrote them based on my own experiences setting up a KK quad with the APM2. I am a micro-controller engineer and did a fair amount of documentation for NEC and others. I like to put together this kind of thing for my own use since it makes it easier to figure out what I did later on. If you see any problems or have any requests, please let me know and I will fix and add what I can. Gary McCray You can enter your responses here or email me at Comment by neophyto... Hi, I want to connect the ESC's to my discovery board STM32f4 in order to control the motor in forward and backward direction and also the speed of the motor. Thanks a lot Comment by hasifn...
