Anyway, I am working on an (ever changing) UAV autopilot project based on gumstix. So far I have reproduced the results by email@example.com
, and I am able to control 6 servos with a X-box controller.
At present I am making a coanda flying saucer (http://jlnlabs.imars.com/gfsuav/index.htm
) and control it with a X-box controller through a gumstix.
I am still looking for a sensor package. I might go for SparkFun IMU ans GPS.
I'm running out of serial port in the design. How many do you have?
GPS (some interfaces use 2 ports??)
pressure sensors (3)
possible AOA. beta sensors
I'm still learning a lot, but I went ahead and bought the gumstix to play with.
