I had a problem with my APM today, specifically a tumbling erratic attitude indication in the MP flight data page. When I looked at the gyro logs in test it showed all 0's. This is the second time I…Continue
"So how is it safe to fly BVLOS if there is no sense and avoid? What am I missing?
Why is the Cessna 150 flying around at 2000' agl the biggest risk?
ADS-B out is going to cost upwards of 10K to purchase and install on a general aviation…"
"Nice work and application on the Frantz strut.
I agree on the need to balance and remove as much source vibration as possible. I always started with a balanced prop and motor combo then running each up individually. Turning the prop 90deg at a time…"
"Ok, I have a sort of a goofy work-around idea for this.
Using a KK2.1 board to stabilize a super simple gimbal, and using the APM/pixhawk gimbal outputs to drive the throttle and rudder inputs on the KK2.1 in order to arm the board to make…"
"I guess this still hasn't been implemented. Has anyone got a v tail mixer working? I would love to be able to use a tiny 9g servo super simple gimbal with a keychain camera. Running even a mini kk2.5 would be bulky enough to make it an…"
"Gary that's nonsense. A typical glideslope is 3 degrees from the touchdown zone of the runway so if you remember your trig you will find the aircrafts height at the distance from the runway. It's really easy, 300' per mile is the rule…"
"So all DHL really succeeded in doing was secure a corridor ofairspace and put out a splashy headline saying me too?
On another note will electric powered UAV's be all weather capable? My motors never liked moisture."
"My take, police helo cruising by spots the Phantom (probably filming the bridge lights) and pulls in to take a closer look. Cop pilot id's it and of course feels threatened as all cops do. The incident is immediately escalated. I suspect the…"
"Clearly some of this heavy handed approach is in response to a very public FPV incident in which the feds were made to look less then competent in enforcing rules governing model aircraft operations.
It was only a matter of time before a reckless…"
My friend patched the latest Arducopter V3.1.5 Quad, and added the following Parameter MNT_DRIVE_MODE which is accessed in the "Full Parameter List". It can be set to either 0 (zero) for a standard mount or 1 for…"
Yes, I'm currently using apc220 pairs for both Ardupilot Mission Planner and a hardware-based GCS at 19200Kbps with success. Where are you stuck? If you can get the PC to recognize and configure the modems, we should be able to get your link up and running.
