An aircraft in flight is controlled by three rotation axes. The three axes rotations are Longitude, Lateral, and Vertical. All three of the axes meets at the center of gravity of the aircraft. As the aircraft pivots, the axes pivots around the center of gravity, hence why the center of gravity is also referred to as the center of rotation. The axis can be simplified to Roll (longitude), Pitch (lateral), and Yaw (vertical).

Codes and Projects V2

Here’s a continuation of what I was doing last week. I forgot to do the first part so here you go.

This one wasn’t filmed the right way. (for some reason)

Here’s the schematic for this build:

This next one uses a series two buttons to light the LED up:

Here’s the schematic:

The third one uses a parallel circuit, allowing two different buttons to power one LED:

The schematic for this one is here:

2019 Day 1 Term 1

Yo, it’s yah boi back again with another round of Computer Tech @ EIT.

Today we started our research into the world of FPV drones. Currently have researched the type different types of drones and they’re parts.

Edit: I forgot to finish this post, I am gonna add the research I have later on on the blog, just wanted to get this part sorted.

Peace

Codes and Programs V1

Yah boi here, back again with some update. Today we played around with more Arduino Uno. I made some projects that uses the LEDs and a little bit of coding.

Here’s some vids:

The code I used is:

int LED5 = 5;
int LED4 = 4;
int LED3 = 3;
int LED2 = 2;
int switchState = 0;


void setup() 
{
  pinMode(LED5, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED4, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED3, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED2, INPUT);
}
void loop (){
  switchState = digitalRead(2); // switchState
  
  if (switchState == LOW) {
    //when button isn't pressed
    
    digitalWrite(LED3, HIGH); // GREEEN LED
    digitalWrite(LED4, LOW); // Red LED
    digitalWrite(LED5, LOW);// red LED
  }
  
  else { // when button is pressed
    digitalWrite(LED3, LOW);
    digitalWrite(LED4, HIGH);
    digitalWrite(LED5, HIGH);

    delay(250); //wait for a quarter second\
    //toggle the LEDs
    digitalWrite (LED4, HIGH);
    digitalWrite(LED5,LOW);
    delay(250);//wait for quarter sec
    
  }
}

Here’s the code for this one: (sorry for vertical vid)


int LED1 = 13;
int LED2 = 12;
int LED3 = 11;


void setup()
{
  pinMode(LED1, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED2, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED3, OUTPUT);
}

void LEDFlash1 (int sec)
  {
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);
  delay(sec); 
  digitalWrite(LED1, LOW);
  delay(sec);
  }

void LEDFlash2 (int sec)
  {
  digitalWrite(LED2, HIGH);
  delay(sec); 
 digitalWrite(LED2, LOW);
  delay(sec);
 }
void LEDFlash3 (int sec)
  {
  digitalWrite(LED3, HIGH);
  delay(sec); 
  digitalWrite(LED3, LOW);
  delay(sec);
  }

void loop()
{
  LEDFlash1 (300);
  LEDFlash2 (400);
  LEDFlash3 (500);
}

That’s all for today folks! See yah~~~~
