IMU 2.0 + TV shows


The latest $220 of gyros arrived. Because the gyros run on 5V and the accelerometers are still stuck to 3.3V, we have the A/D input clipping at 3.3V, providing only 70 deg/sec of real range. Even then, we seem 2 have enough range. Should have probably used 75 deg/sec gyros.

In other news, Vicacopter's TV appearance finally appeared. While there's an HD copy on the hard drive, all U get is the Goo Tube version.

Vicacopter on TV (9 min 27 sec)


Sort of funny that the station which taught U science finally put U on a show about science. Full circle, U might say.

It's the first time we had a decent cameraman to shoot pilot & copter flying. Since then, autonomous hover was achieved but in the winds of that day it still wouldn't work.
