Carambola controlled quadcopter


Saulius writes: “I have just tested in the air my latest quadcopter telemetry link using low-cost open-source wifi board. This link can be used not only to relay telemetry data but control SU(A)V from joystick and get video back to ground station.”

The copter uses the Carambola low cost, open-source WiFi (21.5 dB / 2.4GHz) embeddable WiFi transceivers from 8devices as the means of establishing a bi-directional air-ground link to relay telemetry data.
