I'll try to post video of the 2008 version of my quadrotor helicopter (long intro, Mechanics and Construction). I'm hoping that no blood comes out of this, but then last year... :|

Anyways, I'm testing my PIC with the brushless motor controllers on the new frame. This was just for fun.


In here, I reset the PIC and the motor controllers. Then the PIC arms the controllers, which use the motors as speakers to output warning tones. It's not much in the video, but it's really loud, coming from all 4 motors, in real life. Then the motors rev up, and I use the USB-to-serial functionality of my PIC programmer to send the microcontroller new commands.

It's not that impressive, but give me some time to port the accelerometer and gyro reading codes and maths from the old control system. ;)
