Maiden flight of the Pi WiFi drone

Written by Posted on Categories: Projects, Videography Tags: ,

I've completed the build of the drone since the last update and now it's come to the first test flight, which you can see in this cinematic masterpiece:

It flew for a little longer than this, but could have gone better

Progress made

I've powered all the parts of the drone, including the flight controller and the Pi Model 3B - this model has integrated WiFi, so is ideal for this project. I roughly configured the flight controller (Multiwii Crius v2), loading the firmware and setting the PIDs - but based off the test flight this still needs some work. I've then worked on the config of the Pi, largely basing it currently off Adam Lebon's project, so far, which I will rewrite/rework for my project. 

A few more issues...
