I'll put RPi into rc plane, connect some devices (webcam, gps, gyroscope, accelerometer) and see how it will work.
Phase 1 - black box.
Recording flight parameters.
Connect RPi with webcam and capture video from plane.
- Plane - Sky surfer - it's not very big but if you remove cabine there is enought space to put RPi inside.
- Webcam - Logitech Quickcam E3500 or Logitech Quickcam 9000 PRO - E3500 can be turned in each direction but has not very qood quality, 9000 PRO has very good quality but can't be turned
- Power supply - plane battery with modifications. In this plane receiver is powered from engine controller and servos are powered through receiver. Engine controller output voltage is 5.04V. First time I connect RPi to receiver and it works fine when I don't touch any rudders. When I try to move rudders output voltage drops down to 4.6V and RPi "dies". The modification is to add bec, connect it parallel to battery and connect RPi to this bec. Everything works very good.
- Raspberry Pi with some scripts to capture video.
If the weather allow today I will try to fly ... And if everything goes ok I'll put videos on youtube.
Phase 1 - Step 2. - Connect gps and record position.
Phase 1 - Step 3. - Connect gyroscope and record data.
Phase 1 - Step 4. - Connect accelerometer and record data.
Phase 1 - Step 5. - Connect servos to RPi and record all rudder positions.
Phase 1 - Step 6. - Write some application to present all this data vith 3D view of flight path.
Phase 2 - Drone - allow RPi to control flight.
