Firstly let me caveat, this discussion is not intended to be critical in anyway of APM. APM has moved ahead in strides and I acknowledge the great work of the developers and contributors in this…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

"David that is good to know you have been using with no issues.  I will order one today and try it as well. I have asked one of the developers a question about possibly mapping the different sequence to the correct PWM channels in APM.  I…"

"Greg,  I've been using the PPM encoder with my AR8000 receiver for some time and all is well.  I agree it adds a bit to the clutter. Regards, David R. Boulanger"

"@David, Thank you I do not use the PPM encoder so I have no wires to swap.  But this might be an option be it adding another component in the system.   The normal method for connecting the pixhawk is the single wire to the RCIN So the way…"

"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…"

"Alec you mentioned using camera glimbal as well. Is that 2D or 3D axis? I think the later can be expensive on CPU too. So in addition to other tips perhaps do not use the gimbal on auto tune if possible. I will be interested in how the octo auto…"

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…
