Adafruit forum member jim_lee shared his drone project with us. He designed & 3D printed mounting a bracket for a Pro Trinket and modified his transmitter to can control NeoPixel LEDs.
Needed a mount for attaching a Pro Trinket to our quadcopters. Here’s the LInk : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:729459
This converts the Trinket to two holes centered 1″ apart. 2x4mm socket head machine screws will tap themselves nicely into the holes. It even has tiny cutaways to clear the oh-so-close solder pads.
We asked Jim_lee if he’d share his arduino sketch with us, and he did!
As for the source? Certainly!
I use github as a shared server for my code. I never really understood how it worked other than that. There is a LOT of junk in this pile so most can be ignored. Much of it is experimental “what-ifs” that don’t even work.
That being said..
Starting points :
My Quad with the light bars & flood lights : Jims_minis_lights
The quad with the glowing rings under the motors : Rob_s_Quad
The quad with the police flasher : Tom_Lights
Everything is biased on : libraries/LC_baseTools
My neoPixel libraries are in : libraries/LC_NeoPixel
My stuff for reading the R/C Receiver is in : libraries/LC_RCReciver
Hope this makes sense..
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
