What has Pete been up to? Playing with flying robots, actually.
It’s time for another ATP! (Sorry, I can’t say “According to Pete” with a straight face.) Anyway, today I jack the Futaba serial bus and port it to a SAMD21 Breakout for nefarious purposes. What purposes, you ask? It’s all in an effort to bring aerial competition back to AVC! Well… that’s certainly part of it. But really, there are so many things you could do with a drone if it were just a bit easier to write some custom code on a platform that didn’t already have to stabilize your inept flying (ok, MY inept flying). I’m going to crack that door open for you just a bit.
As always, leave questions/suggestions/thinly-veiled criticisms in the comments below!
