My name is Dimitri and I’m from the University of Chicago, majoring in Computer Science. I’ve been building quadcopters since my senior year of high school. The first flight controller I ever used was ArduPilot flashed to a cloned Arduino Uno.
I’m a 250-class multirotor enthusiast (yay, PixRacer!), so I have a lot of fun zooming around, but I can’t do tricks like many gifted FPVers can. I’ve always struggled nailing a flip in real life, even after extensively flying in simulators. That got me thinking about adding ways to add whole routines so that my quad’s acrobatics need not be limited by my unskilled fingers, but rather which MAVLink commands are available.
I’m looking to incorporate this as part of my project proposal and would love to hear some thoughts!
