The Explorer is a rotorcraft.
It is used to test

  • control loops such as PID and INDI
  • simultaneous datalinks such as Xbee and Wifibroadcast
  • vision algorithm

The aircraft flies an Apogee or a Tawaki autopilot board.
Explorer/PPRZ

There are two RaspberryPi
- on board, as a compagnon board, connected to the autopilot to provide additional communication and processing task.
- on ground, as an interface to the compagnon board, and connected to the ground station to provide additional communication task.

The RPI Zero and RPI 3B can be used in this aircraft as they provided at least one UART and one USB
