Topic: What mcu is best for programming drone (Read 226 times) previous topic - next topic

I want to get deeper into drone programming however haven't found enough information.
Is there a specific mcu board for full drone system? Is it small fpga or plain mcu?
Looking for materials, examples, designs.. Maybe someone could help. Thanks ;)

I will design & code for you, but I will also charge you (PM me)
If you don't like my answers, realize : I'm not being cheeky, I'm Just trying to prompt you to use your own brain/google etc.

I would check out the Teensy3.5 as it has HW support for 32bit floating point and 100++ MHz so
fast enough to do all the math needed.

What kind of drone are you thinking of?
- how many propellers
- sensors
- load
- battery

Please tell us a more about your plans

Looks very interesting. Thanks!

I must say Teensy is Arm Cortex M4 which is same as STM32 F103 and is more pricey.
Currently I am looking at ESP32 low power models like FireBeetle and Geekworm.
I plan to control drones as a hive using flock algorithms and client-server design.
They need to do precise maneuvers and return to host after a command.
Don't know what exactly I need but fast MCU is a must
