@ Richard Kennedy

I bought a monitor bracket for my Taranis from Evolution3D. It is high quality. They also make mounts for tablets and phones here

Hi Everyone, i´m new in building Quadcopters, just last week i ordered all that i need to build my first one and today found out that i ordered the wrong battery (i think).


Lipo 2 cell 7.4v 2650mAh nanotech Turnigy, instead of a 3 cell.


Can i power (fly) my F450 Apm 2.6 with this battery or definitely i need to buy the 3 cell battery.


Thanks in advance to the community

Hi all from Portland Oregon, I have a quad I have put together with the HKPilot micro APM and was having good success at tuning in the, stable flight, altHold, loiter etc............... then did an update or something and now it doesnt see my GPS and the GPS gets very warm.

I am wondering if someone can point me to a group/forum for this FC from HK.

One of my issues is that I am an electronics technician of 30 years and have been playing in the nerd/geek world forever (basic stamp, pic...) and might be having the issue of not seeing the forest through the trees.

HELP!

I lost my OTG cable for the 3DR radio, so went to order 3 of them, another radio then went to check out and got this:

Does anyone know of a U.S. source that sells the cable and separate radios? I need them right away.

Thanks.

Has anyone made a pdf or some other printable version of the Arducopter/Arduplane manuals?  I would like to print a manual for reference, or at the very least have an offline copy of it.  All my flights our out of cell coverage.  And when my laptop is running Mission Planner, I don't want to be switching back and forth between it and a browser.

Screenshot%202015-04-10%2012.49.42.pngHello everybody,

few days ago I've downloaded the "Mission Planner" update. After that, when I plan a new mission and set up new waypoint with the "green" selction button (please see the screenshot eclosed), the waypoint is automatically positioned in a so far location distance. Anybody knows the reason why? Many Thanks

I have a 2013 3drobotics quad I would like to mount a gimbal, does anyone have a simple mount process. I would like to use a canon 260 for video
