STEM Students built and programmed a 400mm quadcopter equipped with a 3DR Pixhawk and a GoPro3+ and 2 axis camera gimbal. Flights, up until January 8, 2015 were on a weekly basis using preset, saved GPS Waypoint navigation course via use of Mission Planner open source software.
This edit is a proof of concept that given enough data, ie. many more weeks of construction, Students will be able to edit together a timelapse video with an aerial camera in motion.
I’m really proud of the students involved in this, and all the other STEM projects underway. I find them to be an inspiration in their energy, ingenuity, and spirit.
