I finaly ordered a CY8CKIT-042-BLE-A in order to create a mini-quadcopter hoping it won’t take me more than a week (am I too optimistic?)...
In the begining, I've tried using a CY8CKIT-050, but, I didn't even get to wake-up a brushless motor. So it finaly decided me it could be better to afford a CY8CKIT-042-BLE!
Can someone please give me any kind of advices to help me realise that project ? I've never created a quadcopter before even though I'm an electrical engineer (you do have to start, someday... So please don't be cruel...), but it seems to me that I need to have some given cypress' libraries to wake up the brushless motors... Unless they have to be programmed in C language. If that's the case, can I please have a few leads for this codings ? I couldn't find any kind of information for waking up the motors, so I really am in a great need of help... Or can you put me in touch with other engineers familiar with UAV technology who can inspire me towards a good idea? I am aware that creating a drone is not an easy task, but it is not that which will discourage me...
Hoping to read you soon,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Not just a "Quite easy" project.
A PSoC4 will not beable to control BLDC motors directly, this can be done using a PSoC5 CY8CKIT-059.
You will need a sensor to capture the orientation. These usually are interfaced with I2C
The motors (4-8) can be controlled using a PWM and BLDC drivers.
For the IMU and AHRS software see here.
