Quad copter Pi

Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:10 pm

Has anybody considered trying to use a Raspberry Pi in a Quad copter? I'm not sure if there is enough I/O for all the sensors and motor controllers.

The Raspberry Pi is not well suited to timing critical applications due to the latency introduced by the linux OS. You would be better off using a micro controller to do the actual motor control but could use a Pi to make a nice interface.
