I think the question is:"would an hexacopter still fly with a 2,5kg payload if an motor was lost?"

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?

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.


Comment by Reto on January 19, 2013 at 1:13pm

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.
