Auto Credit Based on DragonTech's Valkyrie

After two months of designing and testing, DragonTech and I present you with...

Valkyrie, a fully automated VTOL aircraft. It has flight mode, program assisted hover mode, and automated targeted landing.

Craft Design and Video by DragonTech
Vizzy Program by Hannah1212

VIDEO: (Watch it!)

This is a beta release of our project. The craft is fully functional, but it’s possible there are some bugs that we missed. If you have problems or suggestions, let us know so we can fix them for the final release.

Controls

AG 1: Flight mode

Turn on AG 1 to automatically take off. One the takeoff is complete, manual control is engaged, and you can fly it like a normal plane

AG 2: Hover mode

Activate AG 2 to start hover mode. This starts the stabilization program and activated translation mode. The craft can be moved up/forward/sideways with translation mode controls (use keyboard, joysticks, or up/forward/right sliders). Use slider 2 to adjust heading. You don’t need to touch anything other than those controls. When everything is zeroed, the craft will come to a complete hover stop.

AG 3: Autopilot

Activate AG 3 to start the autopilot landing program. If you don’t already have a target selected, the program will ask you to choose a target from the list.

Notes:
  • you can activate autopilot at any time, while grounded, hovering, or flying. The program will figure out what to do. If you are very far from the target, it will switch into automated flight mode until it gets close, if not it will hover the whole way.
  • You can activate AG2 to automatically switch from flight to hover anytime while flying, or activate AG1 while hover to switch to flight mode.
  • The targets options listed will only work in the Juno 2.2 system, because it is targeting various structures within DSC.
  • The vizzy needs to run fast to be stable, It might not work as well on some devices.

    a tip if you increase the altitude of the autopilot to 20 thousand meters its autonomy increases considerably

    @Jakeplaysthejakenut I'm not sure what you mean by eva glitch, I thought the problem was it kept asking you to choose a landing target. It's been a while since I've flown valkyrie but it is usually fine for me. If the input box won't go away it is either because you have another valkyrie spawned somewhere else in the world, and it is the one causing the popup, or maybe you gave it an invalid input but I don't think I made it loop back for that.

    No I don’t I have Eva check if there was a glitch by looking into it myself and I saw nothing so I was wondering if you could fix it?

    Do you happen to have the craft loaded multiple times in the same sandbox? Sometimes that can cause that, since the one you’re not controlling wants the input. @Jakeplaysthejakenut

    Possibly, an interplanetary ssto vtol shuttle thing would be my dream craft and is definitely on my to-do list. But at the rate I’m going it won’t happen for a long time. @FN21878

    Um I’m not really doing requests rn and I’m also not working on atmospheric landings (yet), but if you want to learn vizzy you could give it a try. It looks like a nice rocket tho! @Jayceafton

    Go for it! I tried to comment the code a lot, but it is still pretty chaotic and messy. There are definitely parts that are more complicated than they need to be. The main control loop is basically a bunch of PIDs. If you have questions about a specific part just lmk. @CaveatEmperor
