Im doing a quadcopter using Arduino, but I am stuck at the stabilization part.
PID algorithms in the manufacturing process can be quite complex. I believe this problem is simpler to solve.
Around here (university engineering department that teaches controls) the consensus seems to be that PID is less effective than other control algorithms, but it is used because it is simpler (to implement and understand).
What 'other control algorithms' are you thinking of?
Can you explain exactly how PID works or post some pseudo code please. Im a bit confused...
Ideas for improvement?
