our lab continue to work and improve our platform , we are working on next generation RTF and OEM platform.
The new brand will be VR BRAIN 4.0 the revision of produvt will be MP32FX V4. Put a BRAIN in your DRONE :)
The new design will be based on experience doing with MP32FX V3 and NAVY 2012 . Same great sensor MPU6000 , HMC5883 , MS barometer and STM32F1 or F4 as micro controller and Data Flash onboard for save realtime data logging .
The design will be more compact , only 1 all in one board with put a gps on it or connected by a cable
There are also interesting news about new exclusive ST MEMS sensor supported by VR Brain but will be more news available in the future :)
For special low consuption application will be available also L1 revision of micro.
So with this new boar will be available also the new VR IDE PRO .
The main adavantages of this new ide is the direct support of .PDE file so will be more simple mantain the aligment of arducopter project and support of relative path so will be more simple de zip and use enviroment without need to redefine the path ecc ecc in the eclipse.
This is the link of new VRIDE is 4 part download all then dezip it.
First early Flight Video only for test that all work fine ... a windy day and need to setup PID because with more power the old one is not good:
Dear Friends, i'm happy to inform you that our new product Multipilot32F4 and NAVY 2012 is ready for beta testing for a special price of 199 euro.
We presented it at the beginning of year .We finish to port low level library from STM32F1 to STM32F4: We rewrite old libmaple for STM32F1 by scratch porting all lib to STM32F4. (thank's Alberto V for his work on library) So the AP_LIB have same interface of standard AP_LIB for arduino and the Arducopter32 is very similar to original revision for Arduino platform , share 98% with original code.
The firmware that i using in my fly test is Arducopter 2.5.4 so it's last available.
I'm doing my first fly test in these day with success . A video will be availabe in the next days
