Howdy all,I just cloned the mission planner and was working on getting it to compile (visual studio 10), when I ran into a problem with SharpKml.dllThe file currently in source, appears to conflict…Continue
"In my experience with the MB1240, you are too close to the ESC, and too close to frame / batteries.
I find they are very sensitive to secondary reflections that are close to the sensor..... AKA bounce off batteries.
If you make a little mount,…"
But you should note, I just completed a sense and avoid project, testing many different sensors (pic shows one set up), in a harsh environment, and the APM doesn't have cycles to do it.
I had to add another Arduino, and…"
"I just found some of your bugs Rob, yes it's polling, and there is additional sensors not in this pic.
But again, there was little code I could add to APM, without breaking the 40hz loop. If I started pulling stuff I didn't need,…"
"Now you know, why I knew, what to do with sonar 3d feedback, for your other project so easily.
This was just a test bed, for a much larger project, but again, it really worked damn well.
Nothing to do with the graffiti project you where working…"
"Sorry, I'm with the others on this, APM is stuffed. I recently did a sensor flight feed back project with APM, and it was easier to add another Arduino, hijacking the PPM signal, then add the needed code into APM 3.1 :(
Bbut I have to ask why?
There are several companies with TOF camera solution that fit into smart phones. to be introduced shortly.
The latest Gen, is very sweet, and you don't even need a Dev kit, just grab a Xbox One, if you…"
"I do this at work, using the large 8KW solid state laser, structural steel cutting, 5 axis gantry, I developed for them.
Only problem is the powder that works good (everything else pretty much sucks), is so damn expensive, it's not worth…"
"Thanks Doug, but my hubs are fine. Threads are sticking past the nut, and the props are sitting very snug and center.
Likely there arte shorter ones out there.
100+ hours on our X8 so far, proving and improving the sensor package and…"
"At the end of the day, like all engineering (well should be), you have to ask what is the easiest / best way to solve a task.
What are you trying to do?
Fly outside as long as you can, in one small area, taking pictures?
-Well lighter then…"
