SoloTrek XFV Flying Vehicle
 

Millennium Jet's new SoloTrek XFV is a brand new kind of flying machine that you step on, strap on, and fly.

Recent tethered tests were controlled by three BX-24 microcontrollers -- one reads data from a 3-axis control stick and gyroscope, a second BX-24 controlled flight control actuators, and a third provided throttle control.

OASES ROV Retrofit
 

OASES used both BasicX-24 and SitePlayer to upgrade the control system in their ROV. Operator control commands are sent via Ethernet down to a SitePlayer module in the ROV. The SitePlayer converts the Ethernet commands into RS232 which feeds multiple BasicX-24s. BasicX-24s control the ROV's thrusters, pan/tilt camera, and lighting. A BasicX-24 also collects data from a pressure sensor, water leak detector, digital compass, accelerometers, and other scientific sensors. This data is sent back to the surface through the SitePlayer module.

The S.O.R.A.C. Project

The S.O.R.A.C (Sub-Orbital Rocket Amateur Class) project consists of a group of engineers and scientists. Their ultimate goal is to put a privately built amateur rocket into low earth orbit and return it safely to earth. BasicX-01 and BasicX-24 are used as the main flight system on many of their ever changing arsenal of experimental rocket test vehicles.
