Open-source RC Quadcopter for Surveillance

aeroquad

The AeroQuad is an open source hardware and software project dedicated to the construction of remote controlled four-rotor helicopters, called quadcopters or quadrocopters for purposes such as surveillance, search and rescue, and agricultural applications like mapping of fields. The latest software also supports additional multicopter configurations. The AeroQuad hardware consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board. Additionally, it comes with an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS. The design supports multiple flight configurations, enhanced battery monitoring options, multiple flight options, multiple receiver options and camera stabilization support. More on this Reference Design

Quadcopter Drone based on Cortex-M4 MCU

Quadcopter interface

This reference design includes a real-time flight control board to help users develop flight applications with zero delays. The design is based on Nuvoton’s Cortex -M4 microcontroller supporting high speed ESC (400Hz). A proprietary 10-axis sensor algorithm system allows real-time control of flight dynamics with zero delays. Other components included are a joystick, a 2.4G RF module, and a section board with a Nu-Link-Me emulator that employs a Nuvoton’s Cortex -M4 development board. The system only needs to be connected to an airframe, voltage regulator, motor, rotors, and a portable lithium battery to begin flying. More on this Reference Design
