I haven’t quite yet forgotten about my quadcoptor project. It was on hold while I was schooling, but now that’s over I’ve picked it up again. I don’t currently have a good setup for the hardware, so I’ve been focusing on software. Specifically, the controller. The controller dovetails quite nicely from the work on my […]

But there are problems with this: LabView is not especially good for OO programming. 1 Some of the hardware I’m working on doesn’t allow for it (or […]

Labview Woes

It’s been a tough week on the LabView front. I’ve spent some frustrating hours on what should be some simple things. According to the internet these are simple tasks. In reality, though, they seem to not be so simple. The issues I’ve run into (in brief): There doesn’t seem to be a simple way to […]
