CONNECTING AUTOPILOT MODULE 2.5 CONTROL ON DX6I RECEIVER

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bill Bonney Apr 21, 2013. 6 Replies

I am in the process of finishing a project of mine. Its my understanding that the auto pilot control has to be connected from your RC receiver to the APM 2.5 board and that is how i will be able to…Continue

"How do i do mixing with a v-tail model. I read the manual but they mention an external mixer. My drone is a by-plane and only has elevons. Its a 3 channel drone with rudder, elevons, and throttle. I dont know how i am to properly mix the elevons on…"

I am in the process of finishing a project of mine. Its my understanding that the auto pilot control has to be connected from your RC receiver to the APM 2.5 board and that is how i will be able to switch from autopilot to using the transmitter.This link shows the connection but no pin label for the receiver.http://code.google.com/p/ardupilot-mega/wiki/RCI dont know what pin on my DX6I i am to connect the autopilot control.Please…See More

Craig Burden replied to Adrain's discussion USE THE ARDUINO TO SWITCH BETWEEN TWO BATTERIES
"Stephen brings up a very good point. You could account for the voltage drop in your code but the voltage drop varies according to the current being drawn meaning that you could possibly include a current sensor and do a few tests with your…"

About Me:
hobbyist, always interested in new technology
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
(UAV) am trying to create is going to be powered by photovoltaic cells. it will also have an on board life feeding camera. it will have a system am designing to burn and wipe out any information stored on the (UAV) if any system malfunction occurs and plane is out of site, but before it wipes out all information, its going to transmit the info to my computer. this is for my senior undergraduate program.
