I thought being the festive season a short story might be in order.  Especially as Santa may have delivered some new 3DR APM presents recently to those not on the naughty list.Our Story begins back…Continue

Remzibi OSD, support for APM 2 and New GPS LEA-6

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Overington Apr 16, 2013. 3 Replies

I noticed that the Remzibi OSD is still showing it is unsupported with APM2 in the 3DR online store. Does anyone know whether this is likely to change soon? It offers more features than the mini osd…Continue

"Chris: Interesting question on autotune. Regarding a large weight differential eg camera and gimbal versus no payload I would say yes. But looking another way perhaps an equivalent weight on the copter might be prudent for first auto tune tests if…"

Simple GoPro mount and test video

Posted on May 7, 2012 at 6:30am 5 Comments

 

While I am trying to decide on several dual axis camera mount options for the GoPro HD Hero2 and other cameras, I have come up with a very simple direct mount for the GoPro.  Whilst not ideal, it has allowed me to enjoy the camera and capture a few flights with my medium lift arducopter quad.  If you have…
