a year and a half ago came Multipilot 1.0 an inertial platform for applications and semi-professional hobby. After the excellent results obtained from the marketing of these cards, and participation in development projects as open source and Aeroquad Arducopter and 'born www.virtualrobotix.com community.
Today our community is proud to present the evolution of our project: Multipilot 2.0 ST.
The characteristics of Multipilot 2.0 are:
Thanks to Sandro for His Beautifull Renders of Multipilot 2.0
Multipilot32 Flying very well this is video of first fly . I'm using Arducopter 32 NG in stable mode.
I'm very happy of this early result. :)
Thank you Sandro :)
Oh... nice to see the board picture in real life! :)
after a week of testing I'm very happy to inform you that the board work fine:)
I'm doing some test of advanced IDE as CooCox and Ride7 and also check the upload with serial interface with a simple 3 wire serial port.
All work fine. In this week i start to build the first 10 prototype that will be send to our Dev Core Team around the world. Now on the board is possible to write code that use STM32 standard lib without any problem , is possible for example try to port on MP32 AutoQuad project, now I'm start to work to Arduino Wrapper that use standard ST library inside insteat to use custom library so will be more sample use powerfull function of micro as DMA.
The official support of Multipilot32 will be available worldwide on Virtualrobotix Forum with a specific thread.
The official live presentation of board will be next week at 22:00 Rome Time Now I evaluating if doing a presentation for Europe , One for Asia and Other for USA at different time.
I put on Ardupilot32 Repo last update of XDuino ... i'm working on skeleton of Arduino functionality wrapper : http://code.google.com/p/ardupilot32/source/browse/#svn%2Fbranches%...
After a quick look at the code... I'm wondering how to write that all in so short time.
Seem that I need to add more oregano, rosemary e basil on my diet. :P
I'm curious too, about the folder "TVout".
TvOut is the library that i found for Arduino that using only two pwm output and produce a PAL / NTSC video output. it's very good for http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/TVout
I'm working to port it on Ardupilot32 .. so will be available PAL output on it:)
Is possible also to implement an osd .. there're some example on the net .. Now I have other priority but is possible that you can work on it for porting your osd to AP32 .. We have a lot of power to use for this functionality.
I'm using specialized chip to deal with OSD (Max7456).
That helped me to keep it light and include camera control too and drive it all by a single 328p (not really horse power, maybe a little pony...? hehe).
Furthermore, creating a totally software based is probably out of my skills.
It seems to be more appropriated for you, master!
I could try it someday... when I finish the third line of mine, you will finish yours with 3D chars. ;)
This Evening I'm doing a great Result ChibiOS/RT work fine on Multipilot32 . I ask help to Giovanni for configuring Board.h in OS and customize a Multipilot Board for ChibiOS/RT.
Try to compile a sample code and doing standard OS validation thread ... all work fine :) Good Result :)
I Attach the Serial output :) Thanks Giovanni ...
