The Ediplane brought you a simple Intel Edison flight controller. Now, it is time to kick it up a notch. Meet EdiCopter, a full blown autonomous flight controller with many improvements and added features as compared to the EdiPlane Board.
Improved feature list
- STM32uf103 microcontroller (32 bit)
- 6 PWM Outputs
- Onboard power distribution( takes 3S/4S)
- More GPIO out for convenience
- MicroSD Card for logging
- 70mm x 37mm
We are proud to say that this is the first open-source Intel Edison based flight controller. We will release the schematics and kicad files soon once we confirm its functionality. We will post a follow up to this with testing results once we manage to assemble the board.
This board could be used as a autonomous drone controller which is its primary goal. However, the GPIO breakouts allow you to customize the firmware to act as a general single board computer which has a multitude of applications in all kinds of systems from rovers to cube satellites.
