For some AUTO missions, failsafe needs to be disabled. When the mission prohibits heading towards home from any point (could hit a mountain) or is expected to fly beyond reliable control range. Even…Continue
"no never bothered to get so little data at slow refresh rate just to send over audio channel, and make it a read-only feature.
I think you too might find two way telemetry useful.
you can connect the stream from a telemetry radio both to the…"
"Do not involve mission planner unless you desire extra lag lock-in provided by windows.
Use a mavlink library, and listen to the telemetry data directly. It's simple, and you'll find several projects that already does most of the job,…"
"HS65 are a bit more prone to electrical noise when fed with 3v3 PWM. But all HS65 I am using, are used two by two for redundancy, and they were purchased at least 2 years ago, so todays servos may be different.
To really compare servo outputs,…"
"APM2.5 gives 5v PWM.
Check you servo bus voltage, if higher than 5.0v that will increase problems with sensing 3.3v as logic high.
To increase the voltage, you can use 2 transistors, or a servo buffer, servo extender or whatever the readymade…"
"depending on the case, connectors used/open - you can imagine that under certain flight angle, air will "blow" into bigger connector openings, giving a pressure increase, or the connectors can be on the rear of the airflow, giving a…"
"two major mistakes here:
1:you tried to blame it on the "autopilot" - Just realize that until you are very familiar with this advanced piece of technology, any mistakes, crashes, and failures are most likely to be a user error. …"
"if you use a canopy, (or anyway, based on the build) - leaning into "wind" generates a lower pressure "behind" - where APM is - this will make the barometric altimeter sense a pressure drop(= indicated altitude…"
"I did set up a taranis, I do not *own* one tho.
Anyway - in taranis, mixers - you delete the sticks /switches, and add them in proper order, that changes the PPM order.
In both cases , just look up "channel mapping" or similar phrase in…"
"winding errors in motors can do that, but most commonly it's too high load.
The smoke is the enamel insulation of the copper wires and/or epoxy used. - in any case - too much heat.
What motors are you using (brand, model, KV)? , what…"
