PIXHawk RX power?

Started by agentremnant. Last reply by Robert Fenney yesterday. 5 Replies

None of my PXhawks power my RX. I am using a 5v BEC, but I would prefer not to add the weight and additional failure point. Is there a reason they don't natively power 5v?Continue

Optimize your vibration levels with unsuspected technique (thx Forrest Frantz for that)

I finally did the test of hard fixing the APM case to the frame, thus not having two separate masses with vibration dampening materials in between, as before (i.e. : frame/props on one side and APM…Continue

Thanks mP1. Unfortunately we are leaving early Monday morning so I can't really get it quickly enough from Sydney.

@David - do you have a web portal? I will order from you in the future.

Hi Spencer,

I have a heaps of black motor related stuff (i'm a 3DR distro).  Let me know if you don't have any luck elsewhere.

Ive got a spare entire black motor if you want it, in mybox of kool stuff(tm). Pretty sure it works.

Oh ouch i thought you meant the bolt to keep the prop from flying off :) not the shaft thingo.

@Spencer

Turns out that blue adapters do screw on black motors. Priv msg your address and ill post 1 or 2 on monday.

Hi mP1 - unfortunately they are not. Yours have 4 holes. The black ones have only 3. Thanks very much for replying though :)

Dear All,

I live in Perth, Australia. This week I broke a prop adapter for a black 880kV motor - this is the piece that is screwed to the top of each motor - you attach the prop to this. It had already been weakened after I straightened it after a crash.

I am helping out this week on a field trip with a group of botanical researchers in country WA collecting plant material. I was all set to get some habitat footage with my Y6 to help their project. I have some spare motors on order from 3dr but they will not arrive in time. I don't know any place in Oz that supplies these motors.

This is a humble request - does anyone live in the Perth area that is able to lend me a spare prop adapter for next week? I can happily pay with a slab of beer :D

Spencer

Single sheet will block almost all signals, it will also redirect signals so you can wrap a sheet around 1/2 of your wireless router toward your workstation to boost the signal.
