Error loading component: com_tags, Component not found.

As of yesterday, Project MEHA was funded to Stage 1, and the order was made. Project SEPA was ordered the week before and, like the order for MEHA, is waiting for components on backorder to arrive at the warehouse. I spent several hours to enable me to save as much as I could to enable me to have a little headstart for MEHA Stage 3 which will require more planning as I'll be merging Stage 4 into Stage 3 and designing a control board with as much as the circuitry on it as possible to enable a lighter control board. I'd like to thank everyone who donated to the project jars, it means a lot to me, and I hope that you'll enjoy the content that I bring to this site and other sites that I visit. I'd also like to say a bit about my experiences so far with HobbyKing and some tricks and tips that I've learnt while trying to save as much as I could.

This is the current status of the project jars, this will include when I add funds myself when I can:

Global Jar:

Summary of Project Idea

I've been thinking about designing autopilots for some time now. To get the project off the ground, I'm planning on starting with a little and hopefully easy to control helicopter, initially understanding the concepts for the helicopter to fly, and then later on automating those functions so the helicopter just hovers. From there, complete the control system to allow the helicopter to fly around controlled via an RC kit (reusing the kit used from understanding the concepts for the helicopter to fly) or a joystick connected to a computer, then adding in positioning functions (GPS and air speed sensors) to allow for a basic autopilot which can be built on.

Summary of Project Idea

This is a continuation of the MEHA (Micro Electric Helicopter with Autopilot) autopilot that enables the autopilot to be tested on a different type of aircraft. This project later will lead onto a bigger plane being developed for the UAV Outback Challenge which has more complex design and task to complete.

Welcome to Crenn's Mind. Currently, it's a little empty, but I'm working on filling it up as you think.

Please consider donating to the project jar on the side.
