Apr 30 16:09:15 <vmayoral|pc> for now, i'm testing the initial work i did. I'm having some issues with the ardupilot code (specially with the I2C side). There seems to be a bug somewhere so i'm fighting with it. Still, nothing that will keep me hanged
Apr 30 16:09:30 <vmayoral|pc> i keep coding drivers which is what i'm supposed to do through the first weeks
Apr 30 16:09:33 <ds2> are intro videos done?
Apr 30 16:10:03 <vmayoral|pc> mine is, available at
Apr 30 16:10:06 <vvu|Log> just beaglepilot i think :-?

Apr 30 16:11:28 <vmayoral|pc> jkridner: koen pinged me the other day suggesting to got for IIO drivers. I believe it's a great suggestion but i already agreed with tridge on building userspace drivers following previous the convention. Anyhow it can be done in the near future quite easily
