Transcript of Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 9

Today you get your OpenPilot Atom
This will be the brain for your projects moving forward
I only have 6 USB cables so you need to pair up
1 of you can choose to sit alone or be the 3rd wheel
We will be working with the OpenPilot GCS
There is an Android GCS that we are NOT covering today
We won't be covering the 'Wizards' today
OpenPilot GCS Primer
The project founder had some bad news...
Made a really tiny version of CopterControl for solace
Only 30x17mm and a weight of only 4g!
Over 2 years ago it was dubbed the OpenPilot Atom
Was flying both FixedWing & Multirotor craft 2 years ago...
Recently brushed off and removed from the back burner
ReadyMadeRC & GetFPV are primary distributors
The *case* makes it a final product... get one (or make one)!

Use Latest version of the GCS software
You will need to use the USB cable now...

Unsure how they will print...
Other frames? Do some rough math on AUW
