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
Hello,I have installed the sonar XLL-EZ0 on the quadcopter (3DR). Then I launch a sonar test though the CLI in the mission planner software. The arducopter is connected via USB only (no battery).The minimum reading with the sonar command is 20 cm.…Continue
The project's idea is to use my newly received (thx Santa) Pebble time smartwatch to send commands to a drone from your wrist, via a telemetry (mavlink). Accesorily, the objective is also to play with dronekit (mavlink communcation library) and SITL (APM vehicles/drones simulation tool).
As a summary, Pebble runs an HTTP client app to connect to an…Continue
Willing to try out APM antenna tracking, I needed to procure myself with a mechanical servo based pan-tilt system.
This video is both a build log and a kind of "how-to" antenna tracker build guide for those who want to try build their own.
I logically first started to look around to purchase one; my market research basically…Continue
Here a typical week-end "dronegeek" DIY build project : expermenting with 3D printing to make a 900mm Pixhawk quadcopter, with 380Kv motors, 16" props and powered by 6S batteries.
Credits for the frame : do not forget this excellent post from Forrest Frantz on light frame construction techniques:…Continue
