I’ve been experimenting with microprocessors. I have little idea what I’m doing and I’m learning day by day about how the code works and compiles into my tiny little arduino AVR thingy.
For now, here’s a couple of cute videos. It’s not half a lot of wires to make a heart shaped box.

It’s take quite some time to collect all the components of my new helicopter together, get batteries charged and transmitters programmed to get decent and stable flights sorted.

I’ve still not got the sensitivities set up to my satisfaction, but whilst working towards this end I made a little video. I think I’ve got the swashplate dialed in ok, but the rudder sensitivity is lacking, and I can’t for the life of me work out what the gyro is or isn’t doing!

As they say, any landing which you can walk away from is a good one, and you’ll notice a quite deliberate touch and go, which is a story I’m sticking to, definitely not an unplanned ground interaction!
