Last weekend I got my copter flying (Success! :D)However, it flies as if its front is its back. What is even weirder is if I turn the APM2 around on the frame so that it faces the right direction,…Continue

I'm currently connecting my APM2.5 to my pc using a usb. When i connect it to the pc using the mission planner the Roll Pitch and Yaw are always waay off from the actual orientation of the board.I…Continue

Testing quadcopter using pc as a power source

Hello guys, I'm another newbie to UAVs (and electronics to an extent). I was wondering, is it possible to power the quadcopter and all its parts such as motors via the APM2's usb port? I'm planning…Continue

"Ah I didn't know about this. It turned out I had the motors connected the wrong way around and alsothe pitch and roll needed to be reversed. Both you and Starwalt had the right idea. Many thanks :-)"

R. D. Starwalt replied to Dadamuga Mazino's discussion Helicopter flying backwards
"You are certainly doing well but look over some of the diagrams and notes in THIS thread. His final solution was wrong configuration loaded from MP. The APM has a direction arrow for FRONT. If Pitch is reversed on your TX, it will probably…"

Helicopter flying backwards

Last weekend I got my copter flying (Success! :D)However, it flies as if its front is its back. What is even weirder is if I turn the APM2 around on the frame so that it faces the right direction, the copter flips itself on takeoff like its trying to fly upside down (I only make the APM2 point in the opposite direction, I didn't change any of the wires connections etc).Apart from it taking its front in the wrong direction it appears to fly just fine I even tested a couple modes and it was…See More

"Not sure about the ESC beeping. There are lots of reasons why the ESC would beep that are not related to the cell voltage. That might be unrelated to the battery issues. How are you hooking everything up like the ESC and the APM? If everything is…"

Dadamuga Mazino replied to Dadamuga Mazino's discussion Arducopter destroying my Lipo Battery?
"Hmmm perhaps. In that case, why would the ESCs beep the tone for odd voltage?  Just as an added note, it only seems to beep the voltage problem when i connect the APM 2 to the PCB. When I power the APM2 separately (i take off the jumper) the…"

"Sounds like a faulty balancing circuit on the charger (or external balancer). Either that or the balancer wasn't hooked up properly."

"I forgot to mention, my first battery was a Turnigy 4000mah 30C 3S. This Zippy battery is my second battery that developed this problem after being connected. Perhaps its just a coincidence?"

Crasher replied to Dadamuga Mazino's discussion Arducopter destroying my Lipo Battery?
"As long as you have nothing connected to the balance port on your battery in Arducopter, I really cannot see anything that could feasibly cause this problem except a bad battery. When you connect something to the main power leads of your Lipo, it…"

Olivier Dufayt replied to Dadamuga Mazino's discussion Arducopter destroying my Lipo Battery?
"Maybe a problem with your charger... try to measure each cell with a voltmeter (on the balance plug). I use Zippy for years and never had this kind of problem. I don't think the quad is to blame... Good luck "

Bradley J Carr replied to Dadamuga Mazino's discussion Arducopter destroying my Lipo Battery?
"Not pointing a finger on this one.  When I was looking for batteries I had read that the Zippy Batteries had that problem.  Hooking up to the Quadcopter isn't going to take out one cell unless it already had a problem.  My…"

Arducopter destroying my Lipo Battery?

I just built my Arducopter however, when i connect my battery to the set up the escs start beeping indicating there is a problem with the voltage. When i connect the battery to a lipo battery charger i get and error saying the second cell is below voltage (about 1.3v). I thought it was a faulty battery however i got a second battery (of a different brand) and the same thing happened to the same second cell so I'm wondering if it is possible for the arducopter set up to cause a battery to loose…See More

"Actually scratch that. I attempted re configuring it again and it seems to be back to normal :-). However, its not arming anymore even though i'm holding yaw to the far right. :/"

About Me:
I'm a Computer Science student with a keen interest in robotics and cybernetics.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I'm very interested in building an obstacle navigating drone. It would simply be able to identify obstacles and navigate itself through them to be able to reach a way point. Additionally, I'm thinking of programming them to identify objects or people and be able to follow them around.
