This project is a Mind Assist HeliPlane.
The controller backpack is a frame for holding a Arduino board, smart device, two servos with a battery. There are fourteen different 3d printed pieces making up the controller backpack. The backpack function is for input for the transition between hovering and flying on RC model.
Using the spring loaded trainer switch on controller, a person may toggle between a manual or mind input.
-Two ways for transition-
On left side of controller is a shift lever to use with index finger for manual input, through the printed gearing.
The other input uses a Mindwave EEG reader, and is bluetooth to a smart device.
The app on smart device puts out an audio tone when, the Mindwave reads a meditative state. An Arduino board on controller turns a mounted servo when the audio tone is recieved. The servo then turns a input knob on controller, through a different set of printed gearing.
This is STEP ONE building a harness for the transmitter.
STEP TWO , download pieces and print out from thingiverse
Video to right explains assembly of printed parts, wire harness install and components.
Now That the transmitter is complete, head back to the HeliPlane Build to continue.
