Nice photos James
Nikola!! thanks you!!!!!!
How did you connect the flaps to the APM 2, or is it directly on the receiver?
and what is the 2 large holes at the bottom is it for airflow?
Great thinking with the apm mounting I like it.
Hi Christiaan, I connected flaps to channel 5 APM out at Auto Flaps (3) function. the big rectangular hole is for the gopro and the 2 small circular ones are for the wing attachment bolts
What did you use to make holes for the ESC and what i think it is a video tx on top? a soldering iron.
Is it possible to put more pics of the actual holes you made?
I used an X-Acto Knife, the only holes i made was: a. on top for the ESC. b. one on the side for the BEC and c. one one the belly for the go pro. Also i curved some foam inside the battery compartment (just 5mm) .
i dont have any pics before putting my gear, sorry..
i uploaded the battery mods
Aaa so you have your battery right at the end of the tail, I have mine on the belly, some RC gurru told me to hold the plane with two fingers 1/3 of the wing and it must balance and putting the battery on my belly was the best balance, but you have a gopro there so mabey that balances it out.
No my battery is where it supposed to be, on the battery area here:
the only mod was some curving.
the easier way to check the CoG of Bixler is to place your index fingers, at the wing spars
Great Job, Magos!!
Did you use photos stills or video from GoPro to make the orthomosaic? In case of photos, how did you do to trigger the cam on the right moment/position? Is it ardupilot that command it??
Which software you use to run the mosaic? Did you use ground control points to acquire a better result?
