Posted on August 3, 2009 at 2:10pm 3 Comments

No jokes!



I do how ever have something that might help people who want the ublox modules but who are not "PRO's".



As a student i do have a lot of time and found this in one of my favourite shops.

Jammer was die laaste tyd baie besig sien nou eers jou mail.

Ek ken nie rerig Papparazi nie maar Ardupilot is nie duur nie.

Hi Cronselaar het jy al reggekom ek kry net nie tyd om te speel nie laas jaar a gap gehad toe brand ek my Ardupilot board uit nuwe een is nog in die boks.

Hwzt.

Ek kyk na n wireless video setup maar het nog nie finaal besluit nie, het weer n bietjie spoed opgetel en is besig om simulation en set ups te doen.

Jou borde behoort fine te wees ek het n nuwe een gekry in Dec 09 na my laaste prang het als deur die ESC gehardloop en met impak was daar n voltage spike of iets wat my ESC laat mal raak het (enigste logiese rede buiten die feit dat die motor vir 5 secondes na impak teen vol revs was en dit was nie ek nie) nou is daai bord crap. anyway nuwe bord en radio is appart op hulle eie battery nou.

Groete

Jurie

I get the data from GPS logger for the GE stuff. It's a Globalsat BT335, I use it's software to save the data as a .gsd file (proprietary), then use DGManager (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dgmanager-net/) to edit & save it as a GE kml file.

I read in a post that you would provide some details for a cheap & easy hotwire foam cutting setup.  I'd like some details if you have the time.  Sending friend request so we can email. Thanks - Brian
