After several flights with my new hexa, I've run into a problem. Motor number 3 does not spin when the others do. Long story short, I narrowed it down to something with the PDB. If I plug motor 3…Continue

"In the Oregon bill, we really take issue with how "drone" is defined and feel that it is too far reaching. It has the potential criminalize RC hobbyists, FPV flying and so on. "

"This is one of many such bills being put forward. Folks remember the AMA is no longer at the UAS table. They have ring fenced their activity. I chose to highlight this particular bill at sUAS News because it is the one with the most bunkum in it."

Posted on June 13, 2012 at 10:00pm 7 Comments

To avoid confusion, I ought to preface this post by mentioning that I began tests quite some time ago with the APM2 purple board. Since then I've gotten my hands on it's older brother the APM1 (hey, they're cheap now and then!). I have the APM2 in my heli now, so I decided to throw the APM1 on my quad in place of the APM2 to see how things compare...

So that might be a bit of an excessive title, but if I didn't know the differences between the two boards, I…

T-Rex 600E with APM2 - Test Flight

Posted on June 4, 2012 at 9:37pm 21 Comments

As requested, here is a clip of one of my test flights with the APM2 on my 600. This may be the most boring video ever, but in this case, boring is exciting! The APM2 works amazingly well mounted on Align gel, where a tail gyro normally sits. Stabilization is very good using  …
