The twinkie array


U know, we don't have a clue what causes most sonar clocking anomalies. They're affected by the value of SONAR_HISTORY.

So in our efforts to shrink the useful flying space to dumpy apartment size, we have a 1ft array. Sonar can certainly detect the copter below 2m but can't keep her in an apartment sized box. Takeoffs R still out of control. Suspect the large airframe has too much inertia & a micro copter might do a better job.

Tried some circuits & it was pretty bad. Without a full 9DOF AHRS & with that confined space, U can't match Vika 1.



So how did microdrones.com get those super tight videos of the nerdy guy pushing the copter? He's got a super expensive RTK GPS system, the airframe is smaller than Vika 2, it's got a full 9DOF AHRS, it's super balanced to not require as much lowpass filtering, & of course super fast feedback on the airframe.
