FCM

Das FCM ist ein integriertes Modul zur Steuerung von Multicoptern. Von der Grundfunktionalität besitzt es grobe Ähnlichkeit mit den bekannten Controllern wie MultiWii, Ardupilot, Microcopter usw...Die Hardware und Software wurde jedoch von Grund auf neu entwickelt. Warum? Weil ich das immer schon mal tun wollte. Hardware und Software siehe: https://github.com/fabianhu/FCM
