Gday fellow inhabitants of this excellent corner of the internet
Im using a fairly expensive programmable lab power supply for my motor testing.
Its basically feeding the motor a pre-programmed test pattern, e.g. 60 seconds at 2V, then 60 seconds at 2.5V, then 60 seconds at 3V, then 30 seconds rest. And repeat.
Now I want to run a lot more of such tests in parallel, and dont want to buy more of these power supplies.
Instead, I would like to power up a bench full of flight controllers, each of them running a voltage pattern for 4 motors each.
The challenge is:
How to program a flight controller (MultiWii would be ideal ), so that it does the following:
After boot, it will start immediately to power all 4 motors based on a pre-configured schedule (similar to the above), without any manual input from a receiver or USB etc.
Now this is a pretty big deal for me, because I need this setup to prove reliability of our motor production to a large potential customer, and I suck at programming.
I know that you guys will jump in anyway to help me, but to increase motivation, Im offering some hardware perks (FCs and motors) for those who are putting their time into this!
