Well, i have the intention to make a drone this summer, somekind of a plane, and i started looking for electronic components that could fit in.
I always had this problem of digital <-> analog signal conversion problem, now that i found arduino, i think the problem is kinda sorted.
The problem now, is that i’m looking for an arduino board that can manage so much signals (input and output), cause i need so much measure and control equipements linked in this board, for example:
- Between 5 and 7 brushless motors, that have almost the same power, but managed differently, 3 max should be operating in the same time (can switch to 5 in case of high instability for about 45 seconds)
- 1 accelerometer
- 4 servos
- 2 rockets salvas (i don’t understand how it works for the moment
- A semi automatic gun
- A digital Compass
- A GPS
- A transmitter so that i can control it from my computer
Do you think i can connect all that on an Arduino Board, the Arduino Mega for example
I will also need another board to recieve the transmission from the primary board, but, is there any module or “shield” to provide long range transmission? Something like 1km?
I have some other questions, but i will wait a little…
Thank you in advance
