I’m Chris Anderson and wear lots of hats, including Editor of Wired Magazine and founder of DIY Drones, which developed ArduPilot, sold here!



  • Product CLS-10435 | about 3 years ago

    I’ve bought an entry, but how do I declare that it’s an aircraft to make the 15 team cutoff?

  • Product SEN-10082 | about 3 years ago

    What does the firmware do? There’s no clue or documentation on the github page. Is it a full AHRS with a Kalman filter or just sensor reading code?

  • Product GPS-09710 | about 4 years ago

    Right now it’s just for planes, but quadcopter support is coming soon. No plans for helis at the moment.

  • Product GPS-09710 | about 4 years ago

    Product description has now been corrected.

  • Product GPS-08785 | about 4 years ago

    Sblasazk, I think you’re a little confused about this product. It doesn’t “a Sirf-III GPS chipset”; it just has a GPS connector that can work with any GPS module. The code, meanwhile, is actually optimized for the uBlox 5 module, not Sirf-III. All GPS modules have altitude limits, but the uBlox is higher than the figure you gave.

    Sean, ArduPilot is 100% Arduino-compatible, so it has the same I2C functionality as any other Arduino. Several digital pins can be set to handle I2C.

  • Product CLS-09256 | about 5 years ago

    If you record these you will definitely find an audience willing to pay. Why not charge $9.95 for a password to the streamed video version? I’ll bet you’d make your editing costs back in the first week, and then it’s a zero-marginal-cost product that just keeps giving!

    The bootloader is part of the Arduino distribution. It’s ATmegaBOOT_168_atmega328.hex in the hardware/bootloaders/atmega folder
    The setup utility works fine with the current (328) board. If you’re having problems with yours we’ll try to sort them on the DIY Drones site, where this product is supported.

  • Product DEV-09266 | about 5 years ago

    Arduino 16 is not out yet. Any sense when it will be released?

  • Product DEV-09115 | about 5 years ago

    Any idea why the TX and RX LEDs don’t flash when uploading code with Arduino? They do on the 3.3v version of this board.

No public wish lists :(
