The Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano Flight Controller (with GPS) was originally designed as a flight controller for drones but, it also has awesome applications for robotic rovers too. Composed of an ATmega2560 (Arduino Mega Chipset), a collection of sensors, GPS and a host of I/O options it is an ideal “sensor ball” for navigation, positioning and more.
Quadrino Nano Tutorials
This tutorial is about the connection between a Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano and the DFRobot LED Ring. Some folks around the MultiWii project (software that runs inside the Quadrino Nano) developed a piece of software to get visual feedback from the flight controller to an available LED ring.
We often get user requests for a way to datalog movement as well as GPS position, but did not have a proper DIY solution other than saying that they need to implement a few sensors and define a protocol to get all the information stored to a storage solution. Then we […]
The Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano uses the MultiWii project and it therefore needs an initial setup in order to work properly. Some of the on-board sensors will require calibration to perform correctly and in this tutorial we will cover the basic operations for this calibration.
When using the Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano as a UAV flight controller (or another MultiWii based controller), the ESC’s (electronic speed controllers) used to drive the brushless motors need to be calibrated. This is to normalize the RPM output for a given input signal on all motors. ESC’s are not all equally made and reference points therefore need to be setup.
The Quadrino Nano UAV flight controller uses MultiWii which allows for a standardized serial communication of live data from the controller. Since this protocol is known and used for the standard general user interface (MultiWiiConf & WinGUI), some people developed their own application to setup MultiWii boards wirelessly with an Android based […]
This article is intended to help you get started with battery monitoring and the buzzer feature present in MultiWii. We’ll cover proper connections / wiring and software setup as it relates to the Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano flight controller (MultiWii compatible).
