Interesting way to control quadrocopter


New type control was demonstrated in Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control (Switzerland). Stick’s rotation and position change is translated into quadrocopter commands. The principe is very similar to already used system by RC hobbiests. Stick has integrated accelerometers and gyros to detect movement. Maybe such type of control will spread to other applications as well.

EZ crash


During the flight, I’ve lost control of the plane. It seems that the problem was not in electronics, but in mechanics. Poorly glued tail section became loose. I was able to find the plane by turning the motor on and off. I’ve found it in the bushes, so no heavy damage was taken.
