This project was started in , electronics and control loops. Because I always need a cool project to learn new things, it was clear that something that can fly had to be built.
The project started as a "tricopter-only" project, but as I wanted to build smaller vehicles with more payload capacity, I decided to make some quadrotor, hexacopter and Y6 hexacopter firmwares too. My main interest is to build very small MAVs that fly as good as larger ones (or even better) and that can be controlled by wireless video link. I also experimented with autonomous flight in GPS-denied areas (video), and with GPS assisted autonomous hover (video).

Explanation video: FPV camera tilt compensation

This is a follow up to the previous post on tilt compensation.

I made a video where I explain what FPV camera tilt compensation is needed for, how it works and how it looks like in flight:

In FPV camera tilt compensation, control inputs (RC transmitter --> FC) are transformed to the local frame of reference of the camera.

The control outputs (FC --> motors) may additionally be transformed to the local frame of reference of the propellers (if e.g. the props are tilted or the FC is mounted at an angle - use parameters like 'board align' for control output transforms).


  1. Is it possible to use this compensation together with auto-tilt(servo)?
