Alex Wright commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New Beaglebone Blue board designed for robotics
"Is ardupilot able to use brushed motors? Has this been used to make a brushed quadcopter as well? I see them using the motor drivers for mip etc but did not see an example of a brushed quadctoper made with this."

"@Mattic Jovanovic are you able to post pictures of both the front and the back of the pcb you had made. I have an idea of what i need to do. I also wanted to see what parts you populated on the board minus the mpu9250 and ms5611."

Profile Information

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I have a beaglebone black and started initially wanting to build my own arduino powered scratchbuilt edf jet. I then realized that ardupilot was being ported to the beaglebone black. I have compiled a realtime kernel on archlinux and have arduplane running and detecting my sensors. I just need my pixhawk firecape or direction on where to go from there.
