16  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Controller for rc flight models like helicopters, quadcopters and tilt-rotors on: February 27, 2013, 08:36:13 am
Have you designed and or built any aircraft?

Simply relying on a "smart" controller is going to be hard.
Without flight experience it'll be even harder.

from what I can glean from the code, It only uses 4 of the 6 outputs.
the other 2 outputs are unused and could be used for inputs.

one thing I was just thinking about was control is solely done by pitching the "rotors", a full size V22 has control surfaces on the tail and wings.

stuff knows how you would go about mixing those together.

The KK5.5 has a '328, according to the forum posts there is a tonne of space to implement extra functionality.

That KK2 board is getting pretty dated. The gyros are old school piezo and it uses an ATMega168 which is too small for the newer firmware. That's why Seeed has it on closeout.

The KK2 is up to version 5.
This is the TH version

whats wrong with the Murata peizio gyro's?

Get a KK2 multicopter board

http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/kkmulticontroller-smd-v55-blackboard-p-739.html?cPath=132_136

For $25 you can't go wrong

It will support V22 style aircraft as well as other configurations

a lot of the joysticks with "lots" of buttons multiplex them to give you 4 bit code.

One thing to watch is you have to wire up all the ground and +V connections.

A few years agoI went to buy some paving paint to repaint my laundry floor, I asked the smarmy hardware guy, "How many cans of this do I need for a floor 3 metres by 4 metres"

he replied

"how long is a piece of sting?"

I suggested he procreate with himself

so the Roman's had how many fingers?

base 10 as we know it was an Arabic invention.

besides the sloth would fall out of the tree if he/she used both hands

but to cater to the pedantic

1- 1
2- 2
3- 3
4- 4
5- 5
6- 10
7- 11
8- 12
9- 13
10- 14

this assumes the sloth has learnt the value of 0, either as a quantity or a place holder

27  Community / Bar Sport / Re: Nutter or Genius? on: December 12, 2012, 02:02:29 am
for a 3 toed sloth counting in base 3
base10 -> base3
1- 1
2- 2
3- 3
4-10
5- 11
6- 12
7- 13
8- 20
9- 21
10- 22

as for 2Pi, thats a radian/gradian thing

geometrically Pi is diameter/circumference

has any one read "Half Past Human" or "Godwhale" by T.J. Bass?

His gY=c premise that it's the creators signature is kinda interesting.

basically a planets gravity times the year in seconds comes out to the speed of light for a habitable planet.

And on the subject of pi, have you guys seen the movie?

If you haven't you should
