1-DoF Copter

Flight simulation control unit for teaching and research
ACROME 1-DoF Copter is a perfect introductory plant for learning fundamentals of flight dynamics and control.
OVERVIEW
1 DOF Copter has been designed to simplify the intelligent control strategy of flight systems. With the motor compatible electronic speed controller and high-resolution encoder 1 DOF Copter enables users to experience the fundamental concepts of quadcopters, rockets, hovercrafts, and underwater vehicles. Ready to use courseware enables students to understand the main topics of control engineering such as system modeling, linearization, linear control system design and frequency response analysis. The fully open-source software gives the freedom to students and researchers to modify the algorithm or even design their own structure.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

*We offer customization in our product upon customer’s request.
