[How to]New 10DOF 9-axis Attitude Indicator L3G4200D ADXL345 HMC5883L BMP085 Module

UPDATED! for pullups resistors correct values! This post is just an update for linking my previous post about 10DOF 9-axis Attitude Indicator L3G4200D ADXL345 HMC5883L BMP085 because this is another name under wich is known.     As you may already know this is an ‘easy to install’ IMU (compared with price) and it could require the addition of two pullup resistors in order to Read More →

Hexcopter FMS free model preview

Quacopter hexcopter, optocopter FMS models

Here I will illustrate how to obtain some multirotor aircraft models for FMS model simulator. It is very advisable to start practicing on a flight simulator. A flight simulator is very far from reality and movements ad physics laws are essentially faked so you will not be trained to predict aicraft movements reported for instance to the throttle channel, it will be totally different in real Read More →
