Optical Flow Stabilization of a Quadrotor (1 min 3 sec)

(2 min 31 sec)

(2 min 31 sec)


Ordered one for my Arducopter. Going to give the FC one last try before I give up on it. It averages the gps location and the input from the Optical Flow sensor (ADNS3080). Its my understanding Software has come a long way....
