Agile Quadcopter From Scratch
September 10, 2012
I want to make a quadcopter from scratch.
that means, frame, motors, everything, including writing the code for stabilizing it.
I have several questions:
I read several blogs about gyroscopes vs accellerometers. Do i need both? From what i understand, i can just use an accellerometer to add power to an engine when it starts tilting? am i right?
Which microcontroller is suitable for the job? im thinking of arduino, but not using ardupilot, i wanna write my own stabilization code. Any ideas on this?
Do you have any reccommendations for gyroscopes/accellerometers? and a guide on how to read their inputs from the microcontroller?
