Autopilot for autonomous aerial hobbyist vehicles

The idea of this project was to build DIY autopilot kit that anyone could build and use in their flying models like helicopters.

Autopilot uses two dual axis ADXL202 accelerometers to read 3D acceleration, also it reads attitude, engine stats, position, payload stats. All these readings and control is operated by realtime system OS, which reads each sensor at some predefined rate. This is really quite complex system which seems to be stil under development – but it already gives positive results. Project details are available on sourceforge project page.
