Transcript of Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 8

Discuss classic simulators
This is NOT MSFS, but not far off!
Get your USBHID setup
Get your PPM setup
Prove to me you can exhibit some level of control over an aircraft using your Devo7e
Your choice... make ONE of the examples work.
Simulator lab!
Windows, Mac, Linux support - http://www.x-plane.com/
Likes the CD in the drive!
9 (no hardware keys *left*)
10 (not compatible with many SITL / HITL variants)
OpenPilot in the loop compatible (via UDP)
Not Free
There is a demo... PPM mode works fine
I didn't try USBHID
Windows Only - http://www.aerosimrc.com/en/home.htm
Proprietary dongle
2 minute demo time with *any* joystick?
Works with PPM and FMS dongle
Several multirotor models, including DJI...
OpenPIlot plugin
Not Free
Windows, Linux, Mac - http://www.flightgear.org
Best *free* package out there, great graphics!
Fully Open Source
Good for SITL / HITL (OpenPilot Simposix)
Joystick setup not very intuitive
Not easy to use with DeviationTX
OpenPilot support via 'Multiplayer' setttings
Interacts with OpenPilot GCS
with Kevin Finisterre of Pillar Technology
Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 8
Windows Only - http://www.phoenix-sim.com
Works fine with USBHID DevoiationTX
One of the *better* simulations of a copter
Boat load of Horizon Hobby models
Not free, no demo
Comes with Spektrum radio (optional?)
*May* be what I *clear* you on for flight.
Horizon Phoenix-sim
Windows & Mac only (no linux) - http://www.rc-aerobatics.eu/cgm-rc-heli-simulator_e.html
Not Free (expensive)
On OSX App Store
Includes 2 activations
Very realistic looking
Good *feel*
Single model functional demo with one site
USBHID works fine on OSX
PPM works *better* on Windows (USBHID issues)
*May* be another candidate for flight clearance
CGM rc Heli Simulator
Windows, Mac, Linux - http://sourceforge.net/projects/crrcsim/
Open Source
VERY archaic and simple
Works with USBHID within DeviationTX
Only used quadcopter on most recent Windows version
REALLY *old* 95/98/2000 - http://modelsimulator.com
Use PPM out on DeviationTX
You can make as many copies as you wish and distribute it to anyone
*Recent* version distributed on floppies!
'Splitted into 3.5" floppy packages' (5 disks)
FlySky PPM adapter included a copy *with* it
Cheap clones all over the place (eBay)
Adapter works great with other simulators
So old needs patches for modern windows versions
I did get the .reg / .dll work around fix to work
I did NOT get multirotor models to work properly
How are we with group 3d gimbals?
Anyone unable to get files into .STL format?
I would like to make sure files are fablab ready
We have *most* of your parts *in*
You have no frame... fablab? 3d printable Arion?
I have 2 G10 Arion frames with hardware $60 each
Thingiverse frame? Buy one? CNC run with me?
Stratysis es1200 says "feed me...!!!"
Homework Followup
