Hello,I would like to test a real antenna tracker, driven by a Pixhawk and the antenna tracker firmware, which is setup "in the middle" : on one side the antenna tracker is linked via 3DR radio to the vehicle, on the other side, it is linked to a…Continue
A user reported on this forum a 3DR representative announcing 3DR is stopping the 433 and 915 radios. I assume this is incorrect information or is it? Can a 3DR official give the real status?If 3DR really stops the radios, what could be reliable…Continue
Finally found a bit of time to test the light 45gr 2 axis brushless gimbal we built for the Mobius camera,PS for Cala : better late than never ;)Continue
Hi,I would lile to use the Survey function in mission planner which uses the CAM_TRIG_DIST method to trigger a camera at regular distance intervals.I'm using an infrared camera trigger which is activated by a PWM signal (configurable).The question…Continue
Hi,Edit : from the posts below I deduce the issue seems specific to my config. Threfore I remove temporarily my request to add a line a caution in the wiki as it might not be a general problem for everyone, until further investigation and…Continue
Hi,I launched today the mission planner that started an auto update. It starts downloading files updates (as visible in the console window) but after 2 minutes it stops with error, giving this display and error message:…Continue
Hello,I have seen a picture in the Wiki for the 2.0 APM board showing ouputs A9 to A4 being named "Motor LEDs".Is there any explanation what that is and how is it used ?For example can those outputs be used to power 12Volts LED strips ? (or is it…Continue
Hello,I would like to compile and upload the Arducopter code to my UAV. To do so I followed the instructions on the wiki, that is :-installed the Arduino 1.0.3 (Arudpilot) version on win7-installed the 2.8.1 software version (the two folders…Continue
This is the maiden flight of the latest X-UAV model : "Clouds". It is a V-Tail fixed wing platform, similar to their previous model "Talon".
It runs Arduplane 3.7 on a Pixhawk1 (I try to get a Pixhawk2 for months without any success...Frustrating).
I was supposed to have a flight buddy who would throw the plane while I would hold…
X-UAV Clouds build part 3
This is part3 and the final assembly stage of the X-UAV Clouds build
It is equipped with a barebone Pixhawk autopilot (from Jordi Munoz co founder 3DR, Mrobotics.io) running the latest Arduplane code,
and no need to say this is the best of all ! (thx Tridge and Randy and all others I…Continue
XUAV Clouds build part 2 :
Clouds is a twin motor UAV. Total weight with full payload could get as high as 4Kg.
For an easy hand or catapult launch, a 1:1 weight/power ratio would be more than enough.
This means using two motors producing each a maximum thrust in the 1.8-2Kg range.
So what motor, propellers, battery voltage…Continue
"XUAV Clouds" is the latest FPV/Survey platform from XUAV. I suppose XUAV wants to capitalize on the legendary success of their V-tail Talon model and at the same time compete in the twin motor category against the popular "MFD MyTwinDream" fpv plane.
Its wing span is 1880 mm (vs 1700 on the Talon without wing extensions, or 2000mm…Continue
