At least with the latest firmware, I was able to log IMU data and download it. This flight was a test with auto take-off, some waypoints with altitude changes and auto landing. I did it twice with the same result. I'm happy with my quad.
Here are some screens of X and Y…Continue

After more than a year of VRBrain 4.5 development , thanks to the efforts of FOXTEAM and the VRI dev team, reached a level of maturity and very high reliability .
It ' was the first platform to support Arducopter 32-bit first through the use of a port of the old library AP_XXX then with new AP_HAL_VRBRAIN library , but without the use of…Continue
I received an APM Led Buzzer card (from Charles Lakins).APM 2x LED / Buzzer ModuleContinue
I had more flights with my Quad. I'm still impressed with RTL performance but as I explore the settings I have some questions.
I had a try with Fence. I have to do a retry but I'm quite sure there is a problem: I cannot arm motors (after battery exchange) with fence enabled. There is no Red led blinking and save of the new home. I had to uncheck Fence in the config in order to save the new Home and fly.
I had also a try with Saving…Continue
Today I did the first test with my new CTX4 V2 (VRBrain 4.5 + external IMU)
Did some simple test in my garden + alt hold, loter and auto land - no probles, and wery stable.
My great VRBrain controller is running code from today (10.10.2013) (used Eclipse to pull and build the latest code from Emilie, that does an impressive…Continue

Almost done :-)
I do not use bullet connectors on the ESC to motor cables, so I connect the cables like this while testing.
First, I test if the rotation directions are correct, by connecting the “servo” cable to the throttle channel on my rx. If the rotation direction is wrong, I swap two of the three cables between ESC and motor.
My ESC`s are flashed with SimonK, so before I disconnect the RX, I calibrate the ESC. Disconnect LiPo,…Continue
I received my VrBrain4.5 order today. I used an APM2 on a SpiderLike Quad and I just swapped the two units on the frame. As I had a spare 3DR uBlox GPS, I managed to install it with the VrBrain (internal plug).
Firmware is the latest…Continue

Un interessante iniziativa di VirtualRobotix che vuole diiffondere un po' di informazione sui droni e il loro utilizzo con particolare riferimento ai multirotori, molto in voga in questo periodo.
Durante il workshop verrà allestito un Quadricottero da uso modellistico e, temop…Continue
To better test if the design is ok, I made a simple VRBRAIN cad model to mount in my frame.
I found that I had to do some changes to fit the controller.
In this image I have used 10mm spacers between the center plates - I may test other lengths -…Continue

Have mounted a power board + 6 30mm alu standoffs + 4 tube clamps (from flyduino.net)
On the top center plate (at right) I have mounted 6 spacers with vibration damping.
While waiting on the CTX4 V2 CNC work to be done, I have started a new project CX4M (a mini quad). I have finished the CX4M design. Next step is to get someone to do the CNC part (1,5mm carbone). The CTX4 V2 parts have arrived, so I can…Continue

VR Copter Landing Gear now we have a new Option for our new frame. (raw video from VR LAB)…
Straight from Marco Robustini's UAV piloting school here is the first video of his new pupil: Valentina Russo.
Must say she earned Marco's bravery in flying such a big Quad...
She is Flying VRBRAIN of course on Marco's custom quad.
Bravi Valentina and Marco!
