DIY ARDUINO FLIGHT CONTROLLER

DIY ARDUINO FLIGHT CONTROLLER
As I started arduino 3 years ago I guess I've piled up some extra sensors such as the MPU6050 , BMP180, and the HMC5883L now getting frustrated of my old Flight controller for my quadcopter I decided to make my own similar to those of MULTIWII "CRIUS SE" So here are the main parts An Arduino mini.... or something similar like mine from our local electronics shop exclusive on in the Philippines I got these sensors for 22.31$ only! 1x MPU6050 1xBMP180 or 085 1x HMC5883L 1x Bluetooth module HC 05 or HC02 1x TTL converter such as the FTDI programmer module 2x Pin headers 1x40 1x pre synthesized PCB 6x6cm A lot of female to female wires~ TOOLS and Chemicals FOR PCB fabcrication Mini Drill 1mm Drill bit Ferric Chloride Developer Solution Exposure lamp or 10W florescent lamp 2x small Glass Plates "see through" 2x Containers big enough for the PCB and chemicals

Revolution Platform - OpenPilot.org - The Next Generation Open Source UAV Autopilot Just like CC & CC3D, the Revo has many ports but a key new addition is the Flexi-IO port. A lot of thought went into creating a small device that’s flexible for use with multirotor platforms, helicopters and fixed wing aircraft as well as making connectivity as future proof as possible. The Flexi-IO port uses a 10 pin JST connector and is designed to perform several different functions. The port is used for control input and output and can be configured to serve 6 PWM inputs or outputs, also a mixture of other modes can be configured. The full unshared SPI I/O port can be used as master or slave, allowing you to interface the Revolution board to any other embedded system, like for example the Overo linux boards. This allows us to use the Revo in such cases like advanced robotic applications.

Build an Arduino shield for Quadcopter - Arduino Adapter I have been searching for ideas of making a Quadcopter Arduino flight controller Adapter to sit my Arduino nano board and the GY80, also have some header pins for motors and receiver to make the cabling tidy. There are a lot of Arduino shields people have designed for the Quadcopter. I didn’t follow any of the designs. I actually didn’t follow any planned design, and solder the parts on the veroboard as I go along.

aeroquad - An Arduino based four rotor R/C helicopter or quadrocopter. Check out our main website and forum at For feature requests or bug reports, please submit them to: If you are interested in obtaining the latest and greatest code, please visit our main repository at: The AeroQuad is an open-source hardware and software project dedicated to the construction of remote controlled four-rotor helicopters, also known as quadcopters or quadrocopters. AeroQuad hardware typically consists of an Arduino microcontroller (Mega-2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer and gyroscope.

Raspberry Pi Smartphone Controlled Rc Car We'll be using PWM to control the servos which will be capable of driving 0-3.3V in 3.3mv steps; it is therefore necessary first to measure what your servo command signal voltage levels are and check they fall within this range. You can do this with a multi-meter connected to the receiver pins. On my car speed and steering both use 3 pin headers which are wired: Gnd - Black Power - Red Throttle / Steer - Orange or White For my car the throttle voltages were: Forums - A guide for multi-rotor newbies - Page 3 The list does not include a radio transmitter or receiver, or a battery charger. The posts above give my recommendations for these items. I believe that everything for the aircraft itself is listed.

MegaPirate/Arducopter Setup What is MegaPirate ? Program on the flight controller: MegaPirate = Arducopter Software on PC: MegaPirate = Arducopter Hardware: MegaPirate = MultiWii Mega How to upload the flight controller program to MultiWii Mega board ? Quadcopter Dynamics and Simulation - Andrew Gibiansky A helicopter is a flying vehicle which uses rapidly spinning rotors to push air downwards, thus creating a thrust force keeping the helicopter aloft. Conventional helicopters have two rotors. These can be arranged as two coplanar rotors both providing upwards thrust, but spinning in opposite directions (in order to balance the torques exerted upon the body of the helicopter). The two rotors can also be arranged with one main rotor providing thrust and a smaller side rotor oriented laterally and counteracting the torque produced by the main rotor. However, these configurations require complicated machinery to control the direction of motion; a swashplate is used to change the angle of attack on the main rotors. In order to produce a torque the angle of attack is modulated by the location of each rotor in each stroke, such that more thrust is produced on one side of the rotor plane than the other.

Build A Quadcopter From Scratch - Hardware Overview In this article I will be talking about quadcopter components and how to choose them. This is part of the tutorial series on how to build a quadcopter. In the next post I will be talking about software, how to go about the algorithm and programming. Open GPS Tracker(Photo Instructable) - All The tracker is easy to build on a perfboard. I used a basic one-pad-per-hole perfboard and 26-gauge wire, but 30-gauge would probably be better. All the electronic parts are available from Mouser Electronics.

Forums - A guide for multi-rotor newbies - Page 1 The world of multi-rotor aircraft moves rather quickly these days - newly developed parts are being released regularly, and older designs are being updated with additional features. There's no chance that I will be able to keep up with changes on HobbyKing's products, or their pricing. Please treat this list as a guide to assist you with your own part selection. THE PARTS LISTBelow is a list of parts for a basic quadcopter. This aircraft will be suitable for beginners who have never flown a multi-rotor aircraft before. Arduino: Arduino, GPS, and Remote-Controlled Ai... I recently picked up a new hobby that involves custom building muti-rotor helicopters and during this journey I have found a strong desire to map the flights of my quad copter. Unfortunately, a full sized handheld GPS is much too heavy to add to the payload of the quad copter and still retain respectable flight times. So I began searching for a small, lightweight GPS data logging solution that I could build myself with readily available, off the shelf components. After a few days of research I settled on an Arduino and GPS shield combo with a cusom 3D printed case. Around the time I ordered the hardware I would need, a company called TinyCircuits contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their products, and writing a few tutorials around their Tinyduino line of micro-development boards.
