well..here is my attempt at fpv....i only have maybe 5 flights total under my belt......it was breezy ...and my skills need some work (i basically suck LOL)..but its my cc dex setup with a new CP 900mhz antenna...that is HUGGE...hah... BTW ...video is pretty boring

edit: yes speaking with peabody....definitely could lower kp but then i lose the response that i like.....but ill try lowering kp to reduce the oscillations.....

There is some work in progress regarding stabilization...

See few msgs above about CC Octo support. Since the architecture is flexible, if you have 8 outputs then you can assign some of them to camera.

The only thing needs to be considered is PWM output rate. Usually 400KHz used for motors, and in worst case you'll have to use digital only camera servos to cope with that rate.

Very unlikely Reptor, we are supporting

Windows
Fruit Stuff in the form of laptops
Linux
Android

No other controller has such cross platform support. There is only so much a team of volunteers in a non profit project can do. Unless anyone here has the skills....

But original(open pilot GCS) software also support MAC- so there is support to Apple Well I hope that one will be also for iPhone-iPad

iPhone/iPad support is unlikely to ever happen due to Apple's licensing restrictions.

Cool, I have a heavy lift hexa in the works, using a droidworx frame and a high end camera mount that will be new to the market. Would be great to run all of it off one tiny CC board

A shout out to Reddog for providing the hardware.

I've updated this video to include an actual flight demo. Sorry about the vibration though - my camera mount wasn't great.

If you want iphone support then write the code, its an opensource project.

The fully featured OpenPilot mainboard might breach Apples TOS, if your airframe flies waypoints.

So if you want to use a tablet as a GCS best use an Android one, the GCS already works under Android but needs more work.
