The Stability Controlled Bicopter (SCB) is an RC aircraft vehicle that will maintain stability while it is in the air. The SCB is able to take the signals coming from the controller and implement the pulse width signals using a Pic 32 microcontroller to control the vehicle. Using a sensor to acquire data readings, the sensor is able to send a 3-axis gyro, 3-axis accelerometer, and 3-axis magnetometer readings to tell the microcontroller the current positioning of the bicopter. The microcontroller is then programmed to perform calculations to figure out the compensation needed to stabilize the vehicle and send out signals to control both motors and servos.
