Safety for Pixhawk powered drones

After my quad got stolen, I started to think if it's possible to implement any sort of software or hardware protection like password lock or something. Do you think it is possible to implement?What I have in mind is a configurable set of values on all (or some) channels that flight controller expects to see upon power on. If this "code" is incorrect, it should be impossible to fly or establish any communication at all. The code should be stored in EEPROM or something so reflashing would not…See More

Flaperons

Hi,I've got this weird problem and hope someone could help me with it.I'm trying to setup APM 2.5 on my Firstar v2 2000. It is a large and heavy plane and requires a lot of space to land as it needs to fly fast to stay in the air.I want to setup crow flaps so landing speed is not too high.I have all four wing servos on separate leads, with rc5 and rc8 outputs configured as flaperons (flap part lifts up) and actual flaps on rc6 and rc7.I have all rc outputs limits set to 988 and 2012…See More

"Interesting solution, thanks. The only problem with it would be the impossibility to switch this "mode" on the fly. I was leaning towards setting up two extra separate channels and hooking up all inputs (FC_roll, FC_pitch, EXT_roll and…"

"I have not tried to do this before but I know what you are looking for. I would recommend adjusting the P and I gains down to 0. The power may need to stay the same or higher in order to keep the camera locked in location. "

Banggood gimbal lock

Guys, I've got a cheap Chinese brushless gimbal I use with my copter. It works well however I stumbled across a quastion I have no answer to.Is there any way to "lock" it (one or both axes) as if the camera is directly mounted to the quad? It's all nice when you have nice stable video but if, for example, you fly in Drift mode (which is amazing BTW), you'd want to lock roll axis so the video has more dynamics in it. Any ideas on how to do that?See More

"Thank for that, I'll have a look into that. What about weird stabilizing in circle, is it something esc related also?"
