    I'm Going Under (water)

    Not sure where to post this. Maybe better off on the Flotetest forum, but I guess scratch building is technically correct. I was thinking about ocean kayaking the other day (as you do), and had an idea. I am a recreational fisherman, and have always wondered what I could see under the surface...

    Arduino RC Plane Flight!

    Hey guys, Check out this video of my most recent Arduino based scratch built RC airplane! Right now it is manually flown (with a scratch built Arduino transmitter), but I plan on developing autopilot modes and eventually make it fully autonomous - including takeoff and landing. The main...

    FT Corsair with flaps and lights

    Hi guis! In my main projekt (Dc3) i runned out of glue so i decided to built something else over the weekend. I like the shape of the corsair and i ever wanted to have a warbird :D. Anyway i had the problem, that you can´t get a 4 channel reciver from Multiplex and at the FT Corsair the ailerons...

    Using Arduino as an autopilot

    Hi every one, I’m working on an octocopter that I would like to be auto-piloted. To do that, I’m considering to use my Arduino Mega 2560 to generate PWM signals to «*mimic*» a receiver. I’m using a SP Racing F3 and cleanflight. So more precisely, instead of using a RC command, I want the...

    Trouble connecting to SP Racing F3 through Serial

    Hi all, I'm trying to implement control of my quad through an XBEE. I started on this thread, which got me into the Multiwii Serial Protocol. Another thread on the MultiWii forum goes into interfacing the board through Arduino, and this library was brought up, which should execute datalogging...

    Yes, I am a noob... halp

    Hey guys, Just created my account and trying to figure this out.... Wanting to post a thread on my custom Arduino Tricopter build.... how do I go about doing that?? Thanks Charlie

    Arduino Cheap Madness

    I have a homemade plane made form recycled materials that uses a arduino to control it. Plane Specs 2200kv Brushless Motor(7$), 20 AMP ESC (coming in the mail), A arduino nano(2$) with a 2.4ghz radio pair(6$) with a 2nd arduino Uno(3$) with a pc using serial monitor and HY-SPF05 (2$) with a...

    PWM to PPM conversion with Arduino

    I just saw this blog post this morning. It mentions that there are commercial solutions to do this. If you're into DIY, this could be fun to play with, though. I'm also thinking of the possibilities to do whatever you want to the signals in the process. What comes in via PWM doesn't have to be...

    A2212 Motor Cuts off

    Hello, I have three A2212 13T 1000Kv motor, three 30 amp HW ESC and a 2,200 20C 3s Venom battery pack. The flight controller board is an arduino. For some reason, when I run the motor, it goes all the way up to 50% throttle and cuts off an re-calibrates. I know this is not a problem with the...

    Programming a mini quadcopter receiver board

    I got this mini quadcopter which flies. But, I thought, I would program it to take some autonomous decision. Since, it has both gyro and 3 axis accelerometer built-in, it should be capable of auto correct few flight problems. It has an Atmega328p chip. Means there is possibility that I can...

    Robotic Arm!

    Hey all, I haven't been on the forums for a very long time, life has been kind of busy due to exams and other things getting in the way of RC. But now it's time to pick up the transmitter again. I say that, but I must apologize, as this post is not strictly RC related (although it could be in...

    RC Reading with arduino and pinchangeint libarary problem

    I am working on a project where I use an arduino uno in the loop with a rc receiver feeding information into it, then the uno is sending information into an APM 2.5 autopilot to control a drone. The first approach i was using involved code that used pulseIn to read the pwm from the receiver...

    PPM inputs on Turnigy 9X running ER9x.

    Okay, first off: I built a headtracker (link to the project on RCG) using an arduino that plugs into the trainer port and inputs the head movements (all 3 axis if I wish) to 3 different channels that I can choose (at input, choose PPM1-8). It works like a charm and I can trim it using the GUI...

    Help please! How to make to board know it's a tri not a quad, Multiwii

    Hey guys so this is my first build and I am basing it on Davids tricopter build. I got a Multiwii from hobby king and I am confused on how to make it so it knows it's a tri not a quad. I have the Multiwii GUI but I seems I need something else because there are no options in the software to...

    Can Tx be hacked to connect an arduino?

    Can either Spectrum or FrSky or Turnigy based transmitters be hacked to talk to arduino based micro-controller? Is there an easier way to connect to & use just a module for this purpose?

    Dual receivers/Redundant receiver setup for range testing.

    Hello all, This might be a dumb question but I ask about the possibility of running a dual or redundant receiver setup in a single aircraft to do some practical range tests with various receivers (specifically OrangeRx receivers... just haven't had the best of luck with them). Is it possible...

    My First Tricopter/Multicopter Build

    Hello all, so this was my first ever experiment into the multirotor world! I chose to build a tri because I like the way they look, and their unique flying abilities! Not as robotic as a quad, and almost natural and fluid like! Inspiration was taken from rcexplorer.se, Cheers David! and the...

    RCExplorer Tricopter - with Arduino controller

    Hey Guys - wanted to share a new project with you. I've taken my trusty Tricopter and am working on my own Arduino based controller for it. Thought I would share the development: http://www.ilovefpv.com/arduino-project-gyro-based-rc-controller

    My Quad Build with MultiWii Controller

    Hi Guys thought i would start a new thread for the progress of my quad build, soon after my tri build (Still tweaking this) i finally started my QuadX build. Simple 3mm Ply and 15mm x 15mm Arms. I have made this quite small as i want something to challenge me when flying. The arm lengths are all...
