Hermione development calendar

July

Purchase:

  • New legs (awaiting arrival)
  • New PX4FLOW 1.3.1 (awaiting arrival of a slow boat from China)
  • New PCBs – X8 compatible but testing first in quad mode

August

Implement:

  • URF (and perhaps LEDDAR) height fused with double integrated accelerometer Z axis for qdz_input distance PID
  • PX4FLOW x and y velocities fused with single integrated accelerometer X, Z axes for qvx_input, qvy_input velocity PIDs
  • ignore the PX4FLOW gyro – stick with the MPU9250
  • ignore the PX4FLOW timings – stick to the MPU9250 sampling clock for integration etc
  • working compass
  • look after the kids during their summer holidays

Purchase:

  • get X8 motors and ESC but hold off installation depending on progress of above.

September

Implement:

  • GPS via USB (or 2 port hub if A3 wire built in WiFi has not been announced by then)
  • external antenna for A3 if arrived
  • test flight to GPS defined target at fixed speed / height
  • Cotswold Jam 24th September 1pm – 4pm

October

Purchase:

  • A3 (speculative arrival)

December

Implement:

  • Remove LEDDAR and instead use UART for Scanse Sweep
  • test obstacle avoidance on a GPS target flight
