Receiver noise compensation

Started Mar 13 0 Replies

My Rx is prone to creating some small variable output (noise) which is always going to be, for any receiver. Its enough to affect my video recordings and requires some effort to fix with video…Continue

GoPro controll for non-Solo users

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hotwire Jul 13, 2016. 2 Replies

Before Solo there were many hobbyists using APM and Pixhawk. It was our frustration that the Gopro was not something we could control, not even the trigger ( without risking a dead Gopro). So 3DR did…Continue

APM.com Forum is separate login

Started Jul 29, 2015 0 Replies

Many of the links in the menu above point to APM.com forum stuff. You would think the login for this forum would work for that. But for me, NOPE. What the score? Anyone else have this issue?Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hotwire Nov 30, 2014. 8 Replies

Does anyone know if the default PIDs for APM2.5, are listed anywhere. I have Google this to death with nothing but some old images of the extended PID screen for MP.Continue

Hotwire replied to Mario D. Molina Castellanos's discussion 3DR Iris+ Motor won't start when armed in the group IRIS
"Is it set to spin motors on arming? Have you checked the throttle received from the Rx? Does this also do this in Arco mode, Acro mode ignores many inputs and will arm and operate without checking for HDOP and other things. Seem odd that loiter will…"

Hotwire replied to Mario D. Molina Castellanos's discussion 3DR Iris+ Motor won't start when armed in the group IRIS
"Most common reasons are hdop and compass disparity. Best way to find the answer is to connect to MP while arming. MP will flick up a brief message as to what the fault is. I suggest no props if using a USB cable. Hope this is helpful."

Hotwire replied to Hotwire's discussion GoPro controll for non-Solo users
"To be completely fair I would appreciate an explanation from either part. Was the information given only for Solo development? Do GoPro get a royalty from Solo sales? If either is true I will happily retract my question and get on GoPros back."

Marc Dornan replied to Hotwire's discussion GoPro controll for non-Solo users
"This is down to GoPro and not 3DR to be fair. GoPro could easily have made this available to the masses well before 3DR used it. I do not think they ever cared about aerial users. And they still don't."

GoPro controll for non-Solo users

Before Solo there were many hobbyists using APM and Pixhawk. It was our frustration that the Gopro was not something we could control, not even the trigger ( without risking a dead Gopro). So 3DR did a deal with Gopro and the Solo got the feature of controlling a Gopro Hero camera.The people that purchased the first 3DR products got to pay the way for the RTF stuff to get going but never saw any support.  In deed its gone backwards.Why have 3DR never supported this critical feature for…See More

Hotwire replied to Jun Yamog's discussion Help tune my APM so it flies closer to a Pixhawk which was swaped on the same frame
"I understand you are likely over this topic but I thought you would like a possible explanation. It is my experience that faster or slower FCs sample rates are effected by resonant frequencies, depending on the closeness of the frequencies to the…"

Hotwire replied to Matthew Kerle's discussion new rules from CASA, good news? in the group Australia
"Crop dusting aircraft, especially those in the 7 to 25 kg range, constitute a serious safety risk. For mine and crops survey,I foresee the equipment becoming smaller and smaller. Small photographic drones would constitutes very small safety…"

Hotwire replied to Justin M's discussion I'm ready to drop 3DR, go with DJI in the group IRIS
"All this stuff is way over complicated. A GoPro on a gimbal and Helium balloon, two strings for orientation are control. Its got to be better that $1.5K and video full of jello. Really, all this gear is overkill for selfies."

Hotwire replied to Matthew Kerle's discussion new rules from CASA, good news? in the group Australia
"Thanks for putting this up, Matthew. I would how many people will inform CASA they are taking commercial video with there P4 or Solo. I think maybe the rules will change over time to account for carbon props , fiberglass fixed wing aircraft and…"

Hotwire replied to Justin M's discussion I'm ready to drop 3DR, go with DJI in the group IRIS
"Front left hand motor or ESC failed. Because it was so quick I would expect ESC. Could be a solder join on or connection to it. Once you have a failure, fly low for a bit and try to observe the problem again. It wont go away magically. If it falls…"

Hotwire replied to Phill O'Keefe's discussion Emas MT2213 / DJI 9450 Thrust Prop Compatability in the group Australia
"Should work fine. 1045 props will make little difference but will likely be quieter. Be sure to by a balancer and balance each prop. Check ESCs are compatible with FCs , some just smoke and die, and are only suitable for direct receiver control."

Hotwire replied to Joseph Bruno's discussion Big differences between parameters dumped from TLOGS in the group 3DR SOLO
"Either the data is rubbish or something has conflicted with the com port. Which ever, I would set the FC to defaults and start again. If you have another PC, it would isolate the issue to the computer or the FC."

Hotwire replied to Jim Martin's discussion FPV in Solo App vs Tower App in the group 3DR SOLO
"Hobby King TX/Rx systems usually contain a usb plug to fit a GoPro. Some have an intergrated screen. Cost is about US$300 for a 5.8GHZ system. I don't have a SOLO so I can't tell you if it already includes a Video Tx but these are just…"
