Im trying to make the simple beginnings to create autonomous flight routines for my helicopter.
Im probably jumping in at the deep end as I dont have much experience with electronics but at the moment I have an Arduino that can input PWM to the trainer port of my transmitter and make the rotors turn (with blades off).
I want to put my Sparkfun 5DOF on the helicopter, and transmit the readings wireless back to my Arduino where I would like to log this data in a txt file. I think this will be essential for calibrating and testing of the system.. Basically for now if I can get a bit of breadboard with the sensor on, hold it in my hand and for the Arduino to log the data through some wireless connection would be fantastic..
So, any ideas I should go down to do this? Has anyone done this before (id assume im not the first person to attempt this).
Thanks in advance for any help
