UK Ardupilot Group

I thought it was about time to start a U.K group, mainly due to the time difference between us and USA, so members can discuss their issues here and hopefully get the help they require sooner? Also it possible there is someone living not far away from yourself that you could swap ideas with and get first hand help and advice with your project.

Flags the wrong way up

Thanks' Keith.

I guess the main aim is just to see if we can get all this technology to work together for data collection in our work which is costal sea defence, to create DEM's GeoTiffs to monitor salt marsh erosion,etc.. And of course it's bloody good fun.:)

Hi Jim, I have watched the video and can now see the APM at 90 degrees :-). Its all so new to me that I think I will keep it facing forward so that I don't stretch my skills to much. What is your aim for the mapping camera? The photo looks great by the way.

Comment by Jim Pullen on October 28, 2013 at 3:23am

I have mounted the APM at 90 as it fits nicely and is easy to get to the usb plug if needed, also that is how it is mounted in Flight Riots excellent video. I have used a Canon s100 with CHDK It's a very good small camera and has GPS for easy Geo Ref.Here is an example of the images from the s100 captured from my MK quad. I'm hoping to capture a much bigger area with the penguin.

Comment by Keith Trainor on October 27, 2013 at 2:34pm

Are you going to take photos of your build Jim and why do you have to mount the APM at 90 degrees? I'm not sure what camera to use in the Penquin and it looks like Flight riot like the canon sx series so may well go for one of those. Yes its a shame we aren't closer, it would have been good to see each others builds.

Good luck with the storm tonight.

Comment by Jim Pullen on October 27, 2013 at 1:12pm

Yes, started last week. just setting up the APM now. There was a bit of head scratching mounting the 2.5 at 90 degrees but I think I've got the settings right now. Pity I'm not closer, I'm down in Essex waiting for this storm.:).
