QuadCopter status

Built a 250mm quadcopter using a Teensy 3.1, magnetometer, accelerometer/gyro break , and afro 12 amp esc.  The flight firmware is baseflight.  Currently only have two modes working horizon and heads free.

The transmitter/receiver is a hobbyking HK16A v2.

I'm current working on the next version using a Neo as a flight controller from udoo.org.  The neo as several great features:

  • ARM Cortex M4
  • ARM Cortex A9
  • NTSC input, decodes a NTSC (fpv)
  • on board Wifi
  • CSI parallel input for another camera
  • SDCard.
So, the goal is to port baseflight to the M4 and keep Linux on the A9.  More on this in the next post.
