A Linux-based smart drone with support for the Robot Operating System
Erle-Copter is a quadcopter for developers that uses the Erle-Brain 3 hardware autopilot and the APM flight stack. In a nutshell, it’s a Linux flying robot kit whose behavior can be extended in the same way you’ll code something in your Desktop Linux machine.
It’s ideal for outdoor operations and it has been designed for an extended flight time (about 20 minutes) with a takeoff weight of up to 1 kilogram.
