RE: www.blimpduino.com: low cost open source autonomous blimp
We have added a barometer to the electronics (a very accurate one) and still testing it under very different conditions. The advantages of the laser: you can fly the blimp in your house and it will keep its altitude within cms. The CONS: it is expensive and if you fly over a chair/table, the blimp will climb up according to its new "floor level". This last "problem" is a little bit annoying as you need a clear area to fly the blimp without adjusting continuously its altitude. The laser will be an addon so you can mount it in front of the blimp (attached to a servo) and scan for obstacles, working as a collision radar.
Current status: working on the control APP / interface (layout attached)
