Update for Chris Anderson UAV


Got an email from Chris Anderson (Editor-in-Chief of WIRED magazine) regarding the latest updates to his UAV. Details (edited) below:


"I’ve now upgraded the Lego UAV to use Bluetooth GPS. It took a combination of the RobotC BT and GPS code that Dick Swan and Steven Hassenplug developed plus a port of some of my own autopilot code from a BASIC Stamp autopilot I’d previously created.


The post, with beta code is here. Proper video with onboard telemetry readings coming in a few weeks once I’ve got everything tuned."


I'll post more information as it becomes available. Be sure to check out Chris' website dedicated to UAVs here.

That guy is so inspiring to me!
I am an RC hobbyist (RC planes ofcourse) and I like building with my NXTs... If I just had the money (and some more flying skills, just started with ailerons...) I would have made my own UAV too :-D
