Wifi/RC interference

Started Mar 9 0 Replies

Hello DIYdrone community,I am currently getting into research involving interference issues on the 2.4GHz frequencies. I am interested in equipping my drone (arduboat) with a high power (1W) dipole…Continue

"Adam, thanks for your answer. I'll do some more attempts. It would seem very silly to me if it could not be done by tuning the software... it is just a simngle line of code to be added at the end of the thread, just copying teh PWM value to an…"

"Hi Roberto, This was my original idea for solving the issue but unfortunately I did not actually find a way to do it. I tried messing around with the setting for the ServoX_function params in mission planner but had no success. For…"

"Hello, I'm facing the same problem, i.e. trying to integrate four (4) thruster to my boat, to improve redundancy, and I want to send the same output PWM signal pair-wise to two thrusters (skid steer setting): both LEFT ESC should receive the…"

Wifi/RC interference

Hello DIYdrone community,I am currently getting into research involving interference issues on the 2.4GHz frequencies. I am interested in equipping my drone (arduboat) with a high power (1W) dipole wifi antenna to set up a long distance wlan on a raspberry pi. Antenna: …See More

Adam Day replied to Nicholas Matias's discussion Nasty Crash due to GoPro Wifi Interference ?
"Hi Nicholas, Did you ever receive an answer to this question? I am currently looking into putting a powerful wifi antenna and raspberry pi on my drone but I am worried about interference issues since my RC is also 2.4Ghz. Thank you."

Harald Molle replied to Adam Day's discussion Dual thrusters - ESC and PWM issues in the group ArduBoat User Group
"OK,  First, you will need  - two diodes (e.g. 1N4148, wired types, no SMD) - two resistors 1K, wired  connect the diodes on the side marked with a bar together (the cathodes). Connect  this side of the assembly to the PWM Signal…"

"Hi Harald, Thanks for your help. Could you explain how your wiring diagram works please? Or maybe point me in the right direction? I am more of a mechanical engineer rather than electrical so I dont understand a lot about circuitry. Thanks again.…"

"Adam, i think, the ESC with the broken Fuse will pull the PWM SIgnal somehow to ground. An easy way to isolate the two Signals is a "wired OR" built with diodes. Because the PWM Signals are not that fast, this may work.I have uploaded a…"

Dual thrusters - ESC and PWM issues

Hello,I currently have a USV equipped with a port and starboard thruster. We are working on transitioning from a skid steer system, to dual rudders and we are having issues with our thrusters turning off unexpectedly.Here is a basic layout of our electrical schematic of the propulsion system:So the pixhawk outputs a PWM (no ground…See More

"Hi Esteban, Did you eventually solve this issue? I am currently attempting to accomplish the same thing. I am using a sonar which outputs NMEA 0183 and I am thinking of bringing the messages into an arduino to filter out everything I dont need, and…"
