First of all: I am new to building quadcopters. I build a bigger one but have no experience with small ones.
So basically my project is to make a “smart/intelligent” quadcopter in micro scale(120mm).
The drone is very small so I dont have much place to put things.
To controll the drone i would like to use a tablet with Mission Planner running on it
My first Ideas:
I read something about MavRos to use ROS to send commands to the quadcopter. Is it even possible to send the Mavlink data to a computer running ROS and then send it back to the quadcopter to execute the commands?
My second (simpler) idea is to use the Sharp IR distance sensors for collision avoidance
Hardware I use:
- Micro APM
- 433MHz Telemetry module
- MX-3A ESC
- noname micro brushless motors
- 3.7v 1s 750MAh LiPo
- Minim OSD
Hope you guys can help me
