At some point, Droidplanner changed name to Tower, and suddenly seemed 3DR services - an additional application.Beside the bloating of the phone/tablet with extra icons apps, , what good reason is…Continue
"it's safe for pixhawk, but it won't give pixhawk itself any power redundancy, because it's output voltage is too high - and will be discriminated by it's power selector.
pixhawk can still have two other power sources for…"
"I don't see voltage drop to 9.75v (your fs_voltage) - but the logging is slow, and maybe it's there, the battery does not handle very well the load, too puny battery/too high current/too high internal resistance."
"if you are asking for IP encapsulation and transfer over 3DR radios using mavlink, then that would be very inefficient (not to mention the bandwidth the webpage could require, especially if it streams/previews video)
Usually it's the other way…"
"impossible to say without seeing it, but what I thought, is that your APM were powered by power module, and your ESC's +5v somehow dropped, (like when people overloaded them when using landing gear)
..that was just a guess/ a hint what to look…"
"sure, not a problem, that's what MAV_CMD_DO_DIGICAM_CONFIGURE, MAV_CMD_DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL, and MAV_CMD_DO_CONTROL_VIDEO mavlink messages are for, or, you can even inject your own messages.
It's not really anything…"
"because I, for instance, don't understand what you are actually trying to do/ask
you write "use the Mavlink as just a 900mhz bridge" does not make sense, Mavlink is a serial protocol, you cannot use it "as a…"
"that's not an "issue", to report unless you think the power module or pixhawk can absorb or dissipate all the energy in such short time.
power module is simply a shunt with a 5v power supply, and a voltage divider plus an amplified…"
"Any autopilot flight needs to be monitored. Especially BLOS/BRLOS (always approved by CAA, and coordinated with TIA/TIZ) needs to be monitored, we must always be able to command the UAV.
(BRLOS is where you use indirect telemetry connection, like…"
"Aranica provides high resolution maps, topographic data, hyperspectral, multispectral, and thermal images, for industry and research, (like animal detection and counts) oil spill detection and more. Finally, in spare time, also classic aerial…"
"- What is your drones’ usage?
Some hobby, but mostly professional use. (my actual job)
- Which GCS do you use and why?
APM Planner, because reliability/stability, it's multiplatform and runs on Linux, bonus…"
