This first quadrotor was designed to carry the SCAMP 5c vision system and an ODROID XU4 single board computer and uses the Tarot FY650 frame. The platform enables rapid prototyping of control algorithms onboard the ODROID using the Robot Operating System (ROS). With flight times of over 20 minutes and plenty of payload capacity the quadrotor offers a very convenient solution for developing demonstrators. The motion capture system in the flying arena allows for virtual safety nets to take over control of the aircraft if the quadrotor flys outside of its safe operating region.
This newer quadrotor was designed to carry the SCAMP 5d vision system within the frame pointing downwards or at the front facing forwards. It can carry the ODROID or a raspberry pi zero for ROS integration. Weighing around 1kg it is more agile than the first quadrotor.
