Im just looking for a bit of guidance as I’m completely new to Arduino and I’m attempting what looks like a very difficult project.
Firstly let me explain my reason. I fly a Quick 912 a flexwing microlight that has a wing that acts and behaves differently to a conventional 3 axis aircraft. Basically the wing moves in different directions initially from the pod where the interments are located. Very basically the wing is controlled be offsetting the wight manually in a kind of pendulum affect.
Im attempting to make a device that will give me an acurate artificial horison remotely sent to my iPad using wifi and an app called ihud remote.
The idea is a 10Dof IMU sensor will sit inside the wing and my iPad in the cockpit this should give me a realtime idea of what the wing is doing. (I must stress this would only be used for interest and in an emergency and not to fly IFR)
So a list of things i have so far:
I have a GY-80 sensor (but I’m currently looking for a sketch that will give me a stable readout that is combined and will do all sensors) Is this possible ?
I also have a RN-XV Wifly Module this will hopefully allow me to send the data to the iPad
I also have a 3.7 v li-po battery to power the devices but will ultimately hard wire a power source.
I have the Arduino uno and a good starter kit turning up today to hopefully.
Any guidance or help in achieving this project would be greatly appreciated, bare in mind I’m basically stupid but trying my best to pick all of the language up with regard to sketches and programming the modules.
