Pre-amble Edit

UAV's are created using either a gyro or pyrometer. Gyro IMU signals are processed using a KalmanFilter to compensate for airframe vibrations and can fly in any weather condition, pyrometer based control are not affected by vibrations. But pyrometer systems can't fly in clouds and over heavy mountain ranges, it influences their IR measurements. See UavAirframes for vibration compensation on IMU based frames.

Hack-a-day Edit

* http://bordelon.net/ezstar.html 100km working drone

I've devised my own IMU sensor fusion algorithm which is super easy to visualize and doesn't require a PHD in mathematics. Further, it works as well as the complex filters you'd find in the conventional approach. I've written an article detailing the approach and it should be appearing in Circuit Cellar early 2010. Definitely an article worth looking at if you intend to build your own IMU.

Semi UAV operation Edit

Rcap uses a GpsAndGprs to steer the plane via its rudder from way-point to way-point. The wing can be kept level manually by a RadioControlHobbyist. This is a cheap way of implementing some form of autonomous flight.
