Guys, I was thinking that it would be good to get out and have a DIYDrones Brisbane get together.  These were popular down south in Melbourne and as a recent mover up to Brisbane, I would like to continue hosting the meets.

Is anyone interested in catching up?  If so, head over to the Brisbane group to continue the chat (and sorry for the repost).

Why no use it, even if you stack it? You just may change your mind

Wow dreams can come true, I have always been interested in robotics and would love to get involved in uav's but like everything way out of my league. I can only put my hand up and see what happens thanks James and great gift to the forum

Hey folks!

So this year I decided to get into UAV's, and went and bought myself a second hand X8. But six months on, and I haven't used it. 

Thing is, I've also tried selling it, but after a few interested punters, I wasn't able to clinch the deal.

So here's my proposal - 

If anyone here, or someone you know, would like my X8, free of charge, I'm willing to part with it. Preferably for someone who can't afford a new one.

It's hardly been used - original owner only flew it a few times, so it's still in its box, and comes with a tonne of extra controllers and so forth. 

So please hit me up. It's a great machine, looking for a home!

Are there any multirotor racing groups in Sydney or NSW??

If so does anyone have any contacts?

I just wanted to know if anyone has info about the idrone device from fighting walrus. Will the 915Mhz work on a RFD900 or will I be waiting again for another version for RFD900.

Hi Fred, I think the USB radio uses the FT232R chip

So if you unsolder pins 1 and 5 on the chip you can connect wires to the pads on the PCB and solder these wires to the TX and RX pins of APM.

So, yes techincally possible, but not something many would attempt. I run the RFD900 modules, so I can't check one physically. Maybe there is a breakout connection somewhere more convenient on the board?

Hi all need little help as always only on  weekend getting ready go out sunday

my Telemetry air side has died on spares can i convert usb module to air radio ?

Yep, Tim it's exactly the same document. Smug rights are all yours.
And your right again. You would need an antenna of a gain greater than 10db to get yourself in trouble with the 3DR 915 at maximum output. That's another reason to get the 915 over the 433.
