Has anyone had issues orientating the board in certain vertical positions?I am trying to place the board with the front pointing up and the top of the board facing the right wing. pitch90 and…Continue

Stumped! APM works in HIL but not in the field

Started Mar 17, 2011 0 Replies

I uploaded Ardupilot Mega 2.0-Beta Xplane HIL into my APM and ran it in xplane perfectly.  modes, rtl, auto, waypoints and altitude all worked.  but when i loaded Ardupilot Mega 2.0-Beta and flew it…Continue

Board Orientation Issue

Has anyone had issues orientating the board in certain vertical positions?I am trying to place the board with the front pointing up and the top of the board facing the right wing. pitch90 and pitch270 work fine as well as most of the states but ahrs_orientation states that place the board vertical and contain a second orientation (Roll90Pitch90, Roll90Pitch270) act as if no board orientation is selected. I have tried different combinations of power cycling and leveling the APM to no avail.…See More

"I printed the mold at .254mm layer thickness.  If i had done the fine at .178mm there would be less post processing work.  With more sanding and filling and it should turn out as smooth as any other mold. For mold strength, if I were…"

"Thanks for all that. My prototype fuselage was just laminated over foam, which was later removed but now want to make a mould. If I were doing the plug out of wood I would expect to get a near perfect gloss finish after varnish etc, so would hope to…"

"The ribs caused by the layers of the 3D printed part aren't big enough to transfer to the fabric, but do fill with epoxy. This made it harder to remove the part from the mold and made it necessary to sand the surface of the…"

"I was wondering about 3d printing to make a plug for a mould. Having not handled a 3d printed part I was not expecting a great surface smoothness so would have expected to have to sand, prime, paint, anything to be used for a plug. Was this mould…"

"Sorry for the delay, we added a little shelve inside where the APM gear sits. It's accessible from under the wing.  Wish I was a non-profit institution so I could get  a real raven or two...  Too Cool!"

"This part will not be used. In tests, the apm worked just fine on the inside. I was looking for project ideas as it was the end of the semester and carbon fiber looks good in presentations. This project was only my proof of concept that well…"

"where did you get the surplus raven?  A new system is a lot more than 45k!  Looks pretty beat up.  We put the APM2 on a platform added to the raven which sits right below the main wing.  Still have a ton of room for payload and…"

"You could always do it in fiberglass and then paint it if it interferes.  Carbon does look good with that holographic sheen. I'm trying to design a 3D printed wing tip mold.  Shapeways is picky about things coming to a point, has to…"

"Excellent work! BTW, if you do put an AP under there, make sure that there are no antennas anywhere near the carbon fiber.  Carbon fiber kills RF propagation dead, it doesn't even make a good ground plane."

UAV for High School Senior Project

Posted on March 21, 2011 at 5:00am 11 Comments

http://arcticuavs.blogspot.com/ 

As a senior at my high school we are required to complete a senior project prior to graduation. The project can be anything from building park benches to making improvements to the school but it must benefit the community in some way. I have chosen to build a UAV to provide aerial photographs for agencies here in Fairbanks, AK like Fish and Game, city planning, and for public…
