Intelligent operation

Which of the Arduino controllers allow for intelligent operation?

Thanks Joe

Define 'intelligent operation'?

You may mean "intelligent orientation" mode. Some also refer to it as "Carefree Mode" ala Mikrocopter. Code and function wise, it's also been termed "Orientation Independent Mode control". So you're maybe referring to it in this way? Forward on the stick is always forward or away from the pilot movement, back is always back, left is always left, right is always right regardless of whichever way the multirotor/craft is facing. Some of the multiwii arduino's can do it (ish), as well as the Arducopter and MPNG. Unfortunately your compass has to be pretty good quality. If that's the mode you really want, you may want to go Naza with GPS instead or Mikrocopter (on the high end). Although, I can tell you that flying in that mode is wonky feeling. Mostly it seems to be geared towards people that can't get used to flying normally.

MultiWii has this and I'm pretty sure Mega Pirate NG does, too. Only DJI calls it "Intelligent Orientation Control" or IOC. I don't think it's the way to go, however. Learn to fly the conventional way.

Fly the conventional way? I wonder if pilots of actual aircraft ever get the urge the turn the stick the opposite way they want the aircraft to go.

Seems far more "conventional" using IOC imo.

The only reason R/C pilots have had to use the "conventional " method in the past is because of the limitation of the technology.

I'm sure many people hung on to the typewriter for a long time too, insisting it was better than the computer word processor.

When an computer word processor fails it doesn't do so in a way that can decapitate people. You get noise on your compass or one of your other sensors and you better know how to fly normally to get your craft down if you want it in one piece and safely

I understand what you are saying, I just don't understand the negative attitude by some towards different methods of flying made possible by technology. I tend to be a luddite, but when things are actually simplified by tech rather than made more complicated, I see that as a good thing.

Yes, you should be able to land and fly your model safely. But beyond that it is really all personal preference. Any component can fail, or be interfered with and often is, even with so-called conventional flying.
