Would a hex copter carry a 2.5 KG payload such as a camera comfortably?

Does anybody know if the ArduCopter Quad-C Frame parts are available in CAD format anywhere?

Comment by Shyam Balasubramanian on January 19, 2013 at 1:38pm

Hi @Reto,

You want to achieve this using Servos directly? If I understand correctly, you want to be able to move the servo head to click photographs? What is DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL, can you explain that more precisely?

Also, I think better would be to start a new forum as this looks quite jampacked.

Regards..

Thx Shyam. I'd read your post recently but it doesn't help in my case.
I'd like to mechanically time lapse trigger my RX100 cam through a servo (no IR or usb trigger). I hoped maybe the DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL could be linked with  some time lapse counter.

Comment by Shyam Balasubramanian on January 19, 2013 at 11:48am

Hi @Reto,

I have posted a similar question on Forum and later brainstormed and wrote a code. I think this is what you might need (will work for even APM 2.5):

Here you go!

Comment by Reto on January 19, 2013 at 11:42am

Hi all,
I hope I post my question in the right place.
Does anybody know if APM 2.5 easily could be configured to do time lapse photo trigger? Any input on that would be helpfull.

Cheers

Yes, I calibrated the ESCs all together then tried again individually.  Didn't notice any change after repeating this several times.
