Hobby King order

Discussions on anything related to the evolving idea of Saskatoon's first "makerspace". What is a makerspace to you? What should it be called? What's the charter?

Hobby King order

Post by JamesCooper » Tue Jun 18, 2013 10:36 am

Hey everybody,

I'll be placing a Hobby King order soon to get parts for our raffle quadcopter (roflcopter?). If you would like anything, please let me know and I'll include it in the order. I'll likely be placing the order by the end of the week.

Hmm. Well, the MultiWii can do that with a magnometer. I believe they called it head-free mode. I tried it on mine and it seemed to work well enough, though I couldn't test it much with my big quad in my basement and I've since been having trouble with my quad. That's the only suggestion I have for that feature. There is also Arducopter available for those boards.
