Onboard Flight Data Recorder - this unit collects the data from built-in and external sensors. Onboard Telemetry Transmitter - this unit sends the data from the Recorder to the Dashboard Aerial platform: 1:10 Yak54 replicaProjects Wind tunnel test of propellers and electric motorsProjects The UAV DevboardThe UAV Dev Board, originally designed by Bill Premerlani, is an IMU-based development platform for building controllers for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.The UDB3 comes with a dsPIC30F4011 CPU, an MMA7260 three axis accelerometer and two dual-axis Inversense IXZ500 gyroscopes. With the addition of a GPS receiver, it can be used to develop a UAV controller for an RC plane. Aerial platform: Wing Tiger Art-TechProjects
  • Features:
  • Programmable 3D waypoints; return-to-launch mode, in-flight reset ability, fully programmable actions at waypoint and totally expandable board.
  • Integrates the stabilization and navigation functions. Controls elevator, rudder and throttle, plus one accessory servo or ailerons.
  • "Fly-by-wire" mode gives the user a unique way to pilot the aircraft by telling it where you want to go and allowing the ArduPilot to fly the plane which is great for complete novices to fly.
  • Stores home waypoints and sensor calibration in EEPROM, so they are retrained even in the case of a system restart.
  • Supports Ground Stations for real-time telemetry
  • Uses a desktop setup utility for waypoints and autopilot settings.
  • Uses "cascading PID loops" to combine the stabilization and navigation functions seamlessly.
  • The ArduPilotArduPilot is an inexpensive, simple to use open source autopilot platform created by Chris Anderson and Jordi Munoz , with code developed by Jason Short and Doug Weibel. The hardware consists of the core autopilot board, and various sensors and accessories to add to its functionality.
