Title: Control software for drone?
Post by: zenerbjt on August 09, 2020, 06:31:49 pm
Please could you possibly point the way for someone to get auto-pilot software for designing and building a drone? Ie the  control software to keep the drone level in flight, or make it go right/ left etc...ie control of the motors.

Also, we have a weather drone which will go up on a wire from the ground. The wire carrying electric power for the drone.

Do you please know how we can get software to manage the winch to this drone so that we can manage the paying out and reeling in of this drone's wire so that the wire doesnt get too slack or get tangled?

You mean something like https://ardupilot.org/ (https://ardupilot.org/) or https://betaflight.com/ (https://betaflight.com/)?

There are many Arduino ArduPilots available, they are all pre programmed and have Arduino libraries for interfacing with Arduino.

You didn't specify what a hardware you are going to use. You should check which of projects is corresponding to your hardware.
