"Once you get it fixed, fly it in a non-GPS mode first to make sure the IMUs are good before adding in GPS. It could have been a simple GPS glitch. So being able to really analyze the logs is not a simple task. Requires an…"
"Not sure I agree with you Michael. Check the RC inputs on roll and pitch and then check the roll and pitch outputs. While it appears that the roll stick is slightly out of calibration, as the trim on the roll stick in the parameters is…"
"Doug, it's perfectly normal to get a voltage drop of that size, especially at the start of the battery. If you look at lipo discharge graphs, you will see that there is a very sharp voltage drop at the beginning and end of the cycle, but…"
"Greg you should still be able to contact 3DR support I believe and purchase replacements through them. I think they simply pulled them from the website. Otherwise, just look up the TigerMotor 6th Anniversary motor and prop set. …"
"Wow Jesse, digging up an old thread. The last stable version of 3.2 was 3.2.1; however, the latest stable release of the firmware is 3.3.3 and it's very good. They have made numerous enhancements to make the flight experience more reliable, all…"
"I was able to set up all aux channels (7-12) on my Taranis. I can't remember what I have them all set up to do at the moment, but when I set them up, I tested them all and they all worked as expected. I don't know the answer to…"
Marc, you can make money using the open hardware model. Just look at the business that SparkFun has created using the open hardware model. They are doing pretty well for themselves. Not to mention,…"
"That's funny. Jerry did you seriously not know that the guy you've been arguing with and insulting, calling an unproficient hardware design engineer, is the guy that designed the flight controller that is SUCCESSFULLY being used to…"
"Thomas I just checked and all of the HobbyKing APM/Pixhawk variants have the schematics and board files posted on their site. Just look under the files section on the given product page. They might not be listed on the product page for…"
"Hey Mario. This would be a much better question to ask over in the Arducopter group. Most of the developers hang out in that group. Another option would be to go directly to the developers Google group…"
"Ron check the motors. I've had times where the bolts that hold the motors to the arms start to come loose and the motor can actually wiggle around inside of that cup that hold them. On mine, the motor was loose enough that the outer bell…"
"Ok I just finished messing around with everything. So it doesn't look like RC Passthru works on channels 1-8 as they have a 400Hz refresh rate and standard servos need a 50Hz refresh rate (at least this is what I've read so far in…"
"You may have to make sure the red safety button is pressed and solid red (ready to arm). Not sure if it will pass through the PWM signals when it is still blinking red. I'll hook a servo up tomorrow and make sure it works like I think it…"
"Ok if you are using Channel 7, then I believe you will only need to change 2 parameters. Go to the config/tuning tab in Mission Planner and then go to Full Parameter List. Most likely a window will pop up warning you that min and maxes…"
I'm an electrical engineer in the healthcare sector with a focus on embedded system design. My experience in embedded system design makes the RC hobby right up my alley! The more I learn about RC technology, the more I expand my work-related skill sets.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I got into RC trucks in 2010. I recieved a $20 Syma 107 coaxial helicopter for a Christmas gift a year later, and it was all over from there...I was hooked. A couple years, several quads, a plane, FPV gear, and few thousand dollars later, I love this stuff and am constantly learning new things about the hobby/industry.
