Aerotestra Hugo: New Features

 Sean stopped by with a few of his latest improvement to the Hugo.  First up: Ardupilot Mega!  It flies nicely with the default settings.

Also very nice, an external power switch for disconnecting the battery power.
 Here's a closeup of the APM 2.5 holder.  It's really nice... the unit fits into the holder snugly, the GPS unit screws onto the top, and the receiver velcros onto the bottom.
 And a sonar unit has been added.  It was an old Sparkfun unit that Sean had sitting around, model number unknown. We haven't configured the APM to use it yet.
 The USB cable fits nicely in the ventilation gap.  Sean's going to figure out something to attach to the cable to stiffen it up so it will be easier to plug in without removing the cover.
And it looks quite fine in its new case as well!


  1. Is there a uild blog for this copter?

  2. I don't think there's a build blog... I know will have more information as they get going.
