Alfa1 test.Preparation

During the last wekend I have been busy,so it was not possible to continue the testing.

By the way now it comes a new post where I describe the code I created for what I called alfa tests, a session of experiments to prepare the final code.

Alfa1 test includes the following functionalities:

  1. manual motor jogging
  2. IMU reading
  3. data logging (motor w,and IMU angles)

The actions I want to take during this test are:

  1. verify the disturbance on  IMU data due to motor vibrations
  2. test different IMU filter values
  3. start the motor and  try to understand which is the hover w  (motor angular speed) according to the current configuration
  4. Start the motor and understand  how a deltaw can influence angle of the quadricopter
  5. mount different weights on the quadcopter arm and see the different  wh (hover w) in order to verify my math model.
  6. measure the actual motor angular speed with my smartphone (just curious abuot the possibility to measure the real w  with a sound spektrum analyzer).

Hope to start tomorrow the alfa1 test, than I will share the  code.
