Excellent work man! I just watched you video on flight test. I will be coming back to your week site often. Will certainly be exciting watching your projects progress.

Hello, just watched that loooong video with you talking your mouth dry. Just wanted to say i'm amazed and I still can't understand half of technology behind this marvel of engineering.
Looks like this goes straight to my list of "need" to have. :)
Hope you get manufacturing going and OSrc systems out in the world.

P.S. If you need testing in sub zero climate, i'd be happy to help. B) Most systems i have used are failing some way here in Finland. Hitecs keep burning transmitter modules due to condensation problems and snow getting inside. Also trims go crazy when it's cold.
Futabas seem to work and i have been plannig on buying one. Now i think OSrc should be my next radio system.
P.P.S. I know, it's not a transmitter.
Last Edit: 5 years 6 months ago by Leo82. Reason: Fixed a typo, now it reads what is should :)

This whole system is amazing, such an incredible effort from one person!

Also great to see that it is open and hackable, I think this is going to revolutionize UAV and FPV with the android module, I mean, with a large network, XBEE repeaters then you could reliably sit at a place with a good 4G reception and steer your UAV in 3d maps from google!

But in looking at making a good ground station I become frustrated with googles closed-ness of earth/maps and since I have experience in working with kinect sensors and point cloud data I plan on building a multicopter made for 3D scanning (using parallella processor board for FC and image processing) and using the OSRC system to control it!

The goal of my project is to create an open 3D map of the world, which I hope will be crowdsourced by people using phones with 3d sensors or multicopters for aerial mapping, anything that can fit a kinect/primesense sensor, 3d compass and a gps.

This 3D map would then be accessible as a blind way of flying and navigating unmanned vehicles remotely.
(As long as you have reliable sensor data from compass and gps you can make the vehicle download map frames to create higher precision position estimation by comparing what it sees with prebuilt map)
In fpv mode the map could work as a fail safe if video reception is lost!


What makes me really greatful for this system is, before I discovered it I had gotten into multicopters for some months, but coming from an engineering background I was really frustrated at all the low tech and dreamt about a similar system, even looking at creating a network of XBEE modules (what about providing XBEE repeaters that mount on some kind of tripods or something with huge antennas?), now all that I could ever wish for was already being made!

Really looking forward to getting my hands on this project and looking forward to helping develop the software and dedicated android apps for the FPV advanced module!

Thank you veqtor,

The 3D mapping idea does sound interesting and i hope OSRC can help :) There is still some work to be done before i can release the final OSRC for distribution but we are on our way there.
